I bumped into an old boyfriend that I hadn't seen for about 30 years. We only had a moment to chat but as we are both on Facebook, I said I would message him to catch up. I told my husband but he wasn't very happy about it, I'm in touch with other male colleagues, friends etc but he feels this is different as it's an old boyfriend. I thought that as it was so long ago and the "boy" is in his 70's now, it wasn't a problem. What do others think?

nannapippa I'm sure you're right about the problems with Facebook. The internet has made it so much easier to get in touch with people from your past & it's not always a good idea. I wouldn't have thought of messaging this old boyfriend if I hadn't run into him because we parted on bad terms. He was quite a bit older than me which wasn't so obvious when we were younger but is very obvious now! Like Hattie64 I was glad that we hadn't ended up together, However, I would have liked the chance to make my peace with him. If I hadn't told my husband in the first place, I could probably have done that & moved on. Now I feel I can't get in touch because my husband is so against it & I wouldn't want to upset him.
