How does the "friend suggestions" trigger on Facebook?

I swear, this thing creeps me out. I recently got a friend suggestion and it was an ex girlfriend of mine, and I remember getting one from her months before that... the weird thing is that my facebook profile is NOT the same profile when I used to date this girl, and I don't have any friends in common with her so I don't understand how Facebook are finding a link between us.

Has anyone else noticed this?

    Facebook Suggests Friends to you Based on Information that's on your Profile So

    Where you go to School

    Where you work

    Where you Live

    People who your Friends with Facebook Suggests there Friends to you

    Based on that Facebook comes up with Suggestions on people for you to Add

    They are only suggestions tho keep in mind you Do not have to Add anybody that you don't want to

    Its not just Mutual Friends
