Your father has created a new Facebook and now he is sending you friend requests. You can’t accept the request as, by doing so, you will expose all your personal photos with your girlfriend to him. Also, you can’t deny his friend request because it will let your father think that you are hiding something from him. 

The only thing you can do is delete all your personal posts from Facebook and then accept his friend request. But you can’t do that as these photos embrace the lovely moments you spent with her. 

So what to do? 

There is a smart way by which you can hide your personal posts from your specific Facebook friends smartly without unfriending them.

If You Are On Desktop

  1. Login to your Facebook account.
  2. Go to the profile section of the person from whom you wish to hide your personal posts.
  3. You will find an option called “Friends” right beside their profile photo. 
  4. Hover your mouse over it and you will see a number of options as a dropdown.
  5. Scroll down inside the dropdown box. 
  6. At the bottom, enable the option called “Restricted”.

The restricted mode allows a user to hide all those posts of whose privacy is kept as friends from some specific Facebook friends without letting them know about that.

But remember, they can still see all the post updates you make of which the privacy is set as public. Also, all the comments that you will post on public posts (like Facebook pages) will be visible to your restricted members.

A Simpler Way

There is another option (called Specific friends) by which you can hide some specific posts from some specific people. The only difference between this and the restricted feature is that the restricted feature change the settings permanently. But by using this feature you will need to change the settings each time you post a photo or video on Facebook.
