Phil Friends an Ex on Facebook on Modern Family

Would You Friend an Old Flame on Facebook?

On a recent episode of Modern Family (if you aren't watching this show, you really should be — it's hilarious!), Phil tells his wife, Claire, that he can't see a movie on Saturday night because he's meeting up with one of his Facebook friends — who just so happens to be an ex-girlfriend — for drinks. Claire says she's cool with the meetup, but things get weird when she starts reading off their correspondence in a sexy voice. Obviously she's jealous and/or worried about this meeting, and it's easy to understand why. Getting your ex out of your digital life may not be easy after a breakup, but what if you've been apart for a while and want to spark up a friendship again? Taking into account that you may be in a new committed relationship, this situation can get tricky really fast. Watch the clip below and tell me — would you friend an old flame on Facebook after you've moved on?

I dont understand how so many people think this is ok. I dont think its okay from experiencing it, it almost tore my bf of six and a half years apart, especially if you are a girl and its an old guy friend, or an old boyfriend it can really do some damage. I just think you should leave all that in the past especially if you are in an over emotional state in your life which women are in most of the time,

One of my exes requested me as a friend on facebook. I let the request sit there for a couple of days and then went with a 'no.' I mean, we were friends on myspace a few years back so I guess he thought it was okay. But now he's married, with a baby. So, no thanks.
