People are often curious about former love interests. Some want to know what they are currently doing, while others want to find them for other reasons. I have never been interested in finding an old boyfriend. I had valid reasons for not wanting to continue dating or communicating with ex boyfriends, but others have their reasons for wanting to locate long lost love interests. Some want to rekindle a flame that burned out decades ago, while others are searching for the spark that never fully developed. Use these tips, tricks and valuable resources to locate someone from your past. It might take just a few minutes to find an old boyfriend, even if he has been absent for decades.
Search Facebook First
When trying to find an old boyfriend, search Facebook first. I found two childhood friends on Facebook within a matter of minutes. An old boyfriend might be even easier to find. Most women change their last name when they marry, and because of the name change, they can be impossible to locate. It might be necessary to scan a long list of people with the same first and last name, but if he has included his former location and a clear photo, you will not have to look for long.
Visit the Alumni Listing of His High School or College
If you cannot find an old boyfriend on Facebook, do not give up. Not everyone is interested in social networking sites. Visit the alumni listing on his high school or college website. If he is interested in being found by former friends and classmates, he will make his contact information known. If you do not find your old boyfriend, look for his former friends. Maybe they stayed in touch.
Search Online Whitepages
The most thorough free public listing of people that I have found is Whitepages.com. If people have made their contact information public, their name, address and telephone number will be listed. The site also lists the names of close relatives. Whitepages.com makes it easy to find an old boyfriend and the people that he is or was associated with. If he cannot be directly found, you might be able to contact his closest relatives for a current address and phone number.
Even if you happen to find an old boyfriend, keep in mind that he might be in a relationship. Even if he is not in a relationship, he might not be the same person that he once was. In any case, proceed with politeness and caution. Contacting a person from the past can be a mistake. On the other hand, it might be well worth your time.
