There are 3 things you need to do under privacy settings:
Under how you connect:
1. Who can look up your timeline by name: set to 'friends of friends'
2. who can send you friend requests: set to 'friends of friends'
Under ads, apps, and websites:
1. public search: uncheck 'enable public search'

It's a social network, you can't hide from their search, it would be counter intuitive. Just create a group that isn't allowed to see anything you post or do and lump all your unwanted friends in that. Though I think Facebook is the wrong site/network for your purpose, maybe a personal private website is more suited.

S then use groups. And your ex-GF probably removed you as a friend and put you on do not ask anymore. There is no hide from everyone outside of disabling your profile. It'd be like having your name in the phone ok, but not searchable so people can't actually find you.

Appreciate your imput however this is not the case. I have a 2nd facebook account with a fake name that I used to test this out and even on that facebook account I can still not search for this person by the name.
I ask this cause I have some friends I want to have on my facebook and some I do not wish to have but if they see me on facebook they will have hurt feelings.

I've seen people do this though no idea how, but it is possible not to appear on FB search engine.

Do minors show on the FB search? Or something along those lines where you use one false bit of info and it does the trick.
