    Ex-wife keeps me on her Skype contact list

    So I logged in to my old laptop today, and, lo and behold, noticed that my ex-wife still has me on her contact list for Skype, LinkedIn and Twitter.

    We have been divorced for 2 years and we are not on speaking terms. Itís funny, we are both online on Skype but we donít communicate. I have initiated No Contact on July 1st.

    I was so sure that she didnít wanted to have anything to do with me and blocked me on everything.

    Am I reading too much into this? Is her behaviour normal or is this out of the norm?

    you are reading too much into this. I have people on my list that i haven't talked to in years --- or were a random business contact and talked to them once. She probably just didn't delete it. Honestly, Twitter doesn't have a contact list, no?

    My MySpace page is devoted to the guy I was dating during the time that MySpace was still a viable thing. No, I am not still in love with him.

    BTW, are you still engaged? Does your fiancťe know you are hoping your ex wife comes back to you ("comes to her senses")?

    It could just mean that she didn't want to completely let go. Possibly down the line you could even become friendly enough to say hello with no intentions behind it.

    Divorcing can be harsh and you do lose a huge part of your life. It's not always easy to completely erase everything but at the same time, it doesn't mean there are any romantic connotations connected to it.

    This means absolutely nothing. A lot of people don't go through some grand overture of removing an ex off every social media/communication platform. I still have an ex's number in my phone who I dated in high school. I can say for sure that I do not care about him at all. Stop looking for reasons to hold on. Instead, acknowledge her unwillingness to reconnect with you or work at your marriage, and any of the other very concrete, very real actions she has taken over the years that show she doesn't care. Work on grounding yourself in reality and moving on.

    Yes, you are reading too much into it.

    I have plenty of people (including an ex, I think) on my Skype contacts that I actually haven't spoken to for a long time. I just never got around to deleting them.

    Wow, there's a current fiancee?

    Op, you really need to get over the ex wife. You are being no where fair to your current partner by continually looking in the rear view mirror.

    If you truly want to move on and be fair to your current fiancee, delete the ex wife off of Skype, and let it go.

    Who in the heck still uses skype? LOL. I probably have tons of people on there I don't talk to anymore. Its easier to choose not to talk to them over figuring a way how to delete them. You are reading too much into it.

    She is very active on Skype, but the cool thing, is that I just stopped caring. And that made me so relaxed.
