Ever find your ex's profile on a dating site?Page 1 of 1    
I recently put my POF profile back together, basically out of boredom, and not long after I was shocked to stumble across the profile of my most recent ex.

I could feel my cheeks burning, and that old oh-so-natural urge to **** at him with all my might.. But I realized I couldn't.

We would constantly send each other mixed signals, giving each other hope that we might still have a future, but I'm quite sure both of us have assumed the worst by this point, so finding his profile was a low blow. Of course it didn't take me long to recognize the hypocrisy...

But it just makes me so mad!! Now I'm trying to figure out a way to confront him, without actually admitting that I'm on this site too!

Poor thing, no matter we drive each other up the wall!

Because that's just how we operate. I'd hate to lose the one I love to hate!

imagine if i were posting this and you were the one responding. what would you be saying? something similar probably.

the end result will be the same regardless of what you do: you'll both move on. you can make in-between part as hard on yourself as you want. who knows, maybe you're masochistic and like that sort of gig. bust out the leather and ballgag while you're at it. personally i'd take my fustration out in a more constructive manner ... maybe go kick my neighbor's annoying chihuaha and call it day.

I think you guys are confused about my intentions with this thread.

It's funny! You're supposed to laugh!

If I wanted to be sorely misjudged I would have posted this in the "Ask A Girl" section, where not a comment may pass without being picked apart by bitter singles.

i thought the kicking the chihuahua part was pretty hilarious when i wrote it actually.
"Ask a Cougar" more like it, no offense ladies.

Unless you marked to not show people you viewed their profile the ex knows you found theirs.

My ex is on here and I didn't know, so wen I stumbled upon his profile it made him think I might be interestd again....ah well he knows now.

My ex showed up as a 93% match. I want to tinker a bit with their algorithm. Mostly any woman who shows up at over 70% rides motorcycles (I don't) , has tattoos (I don't), has a stated preference for black men (I'm not) or is a cougar (I'm their age) or some combination of the above.

I would be sending him a message from another profile! a typical girl he would like.

Then ask him questions based on things you KNOW for sure that he has done but prob would not admit. Keep it going and see just how weak he actually is..

Could be fun..

ACTUALLY - Here's what happened to me. The last time I had a profile on Plenty Of Fish, I discovered that an old girlfriend was on here also.

I contacted her just to say "Hi", and maybe reminice a little. Totally a non-romantic thing - just a casual "How do ya do".

I was absolutely shocked and appalled when she suddenly PHONED ME AT MY WORK PLACE!!! - needless to say - I respectfully ended our correspondance.
