your single and dating friends, not to mention showing more insecurity by trying to prove your boyfriend is betters than hers, but it’s also not even the way most guys like to be appreciated. If he really goes above and beyond by all means you should be painting the walls of “the book” with shots of the room full of roses and candles he set out for you for your special anniversary. But try to keep posts like, “Aww my boo just made me PB&J for lunch..#couldntaskforabetterguy” off the wall. You’ll scare him and me.
If you do not read or remember any part of this article, please just take this part with you. I stayed “friends” with my ex-girlfriend from high school for nine years after we broke up! Nine years! It was literally until I was 25 that I decided enough is enough and in a sweaty, crazy, melodramatic moment with my friends cheering me on, de-friended her! It is the single best thing anyone can do today to get over an ex.

Only ten years ago or so, when you broke up with someone you just had to cautiously avoid them at the party or the grocery store or the hallway or the office like you were a trained stealth ninja. Now, not even Jackie Chan can ninja his way out of seeing that his first love just got into a new relationship with some overweight jock who’s not that great at basketball anyways! Excuse me I just had a moment…I’m back now. But that is what happens and we’ve all gone through it.
We as people, for reasons someone more knowledgeable than me may understand, enjoy torturing ourselves after we lose the girl/guy of our dreams. I am not going to lie…it is very hard to discard that ex from your cyber social circles for good. But I implore you to do so to bring pure closure and clarity into your life and make way for your next love.
Last but not least…Facebook means nothing
I know this kinda contradicts what I said before about FB meaning something but as we all know deep down inside, it means nothing. My best friend from high-school just got engaged and he never joined the phenomenon. Not when it was cool in high-school, not when it was cool in college, and not now. And guess what? He is a happy, about to be married dude with a beautiful, kind girl. When he proposed to his girlfriend the strangest thing happened: my phone rang. It was him. He was choked up and I knew he had finally asked. He told me with his words and it was beautiful. No posts. No pics. No show. Just life.
Most of us are not as brave as him to cut ourselves off from social media. It’s OK. Just follow the First Ever Ultimate Facebook Rulebook and you’ll all be fine.
