    Do I "follow" my DD's XBF?

    Silly question. We need an Emily Post 2.0.

    DD had a BF we all loved. Such a sweet guy. Of course, it's up to my kids/SOs to determine the course of the relationship, and 3 years ago they called it quits. I grieved... I sent his mother (who I had never met) a FB PM telling her how much I loved her son. I always felt DD was a little rash in this decision, but of course, it's her life.

    Now she has another SO. Awesome guy. I really like him a lot. She is at his family's home for Thanksgiving as we speak.

    Tooling around on Instagram I saw the her exBF has an account. I want to "follow" him, but is that bad? My DS follows him, and even his exGF, my DD, follows him, so does that make it OK for me to?

    Absolutely follow him if you want to. Especially since your DD also follows him. Clearly she must not hate him if she follows him.

    I'd feel OK with it.
