So my boyfriend's ex-MIL has decided to send me a friend request on Facebook. For the moment it's just sitting there in my friend request box but what should I do?
<bg>I have absolutely NO desire to be friends or be friendly with this woman (or her daughter.) She has treated my BF like total crap since he split from her daughter (it was mutual) and prying her nose into things that have nothing to do with her (oh the lovely Facebook messages and texts she had sent to him) and from what I've seen, is just NOT.A.NICE.PERSON.
Her and her daughter need to pry into everyone's personal lives and get information that they have no business knowing. When we first started dating, I heard his ex questioning him on the phone about me and I told him he better stop telling her information that she has absolutely no business knowing. (How much my car cost. Where I work. Really?)
Questions about how I interact with her son and if I'm a felon, yes I understand, but anything not pertaining to how I treat her son or if I'm a danger to his safety, I feel is off limits. He did finally tell her to cut it out with her ridiculous questioning and if she wanted to know all this so badly she can just ask me herself.</bg>
I have said a grand total of two words to this women (the MIL) since BF and I started dating and the only reason he still interacts with her is because of the kid, even so it's only a very very limited basis (such as dropping off or picking up the child off at MIL house instead of the ex.). I can see her wanting to add me because she might think I post photos of her grand kid on my page, but the one time I did, I tagged BF in the photos so it showed up on his page, and she could see it there since she is friends with him. I don't normally post pictures of his kid on my page because I feel as though it is not my place to do so. She might use the grand kid as an excuse but it's clearly just a way for her to pry some more and be nosy. BF thinks it's weird as well but does not know what I should do either.
Thoughts? Should I just let it sit there? Accept? Reject it? The only problem with rejecting is that I can see my BF getting crap from both of them about it. (Though he does have a spine and will have no issue telling them exactly where they can go and voice their concerns.)
