Trust me, I know it is tempting to continue following your ex on social media post-breakup. You want to keep tabs on him, see how he is dealing with the breakup, and how quickly he gets over you. Let me tell you, girl, it isn’t healthy. Here are 3 reasons you should unfriend your ex.

  1. It is hurting more than it is helping: Sometimes, seeing that your ex hasn’t unfriended you after a breakup can make you think that there is hope of you two getting back together. It can also prevent you from moving on. Seeing that ex and what they are up to can make you miss them and forget the reasons you broke up in the first place. It can also tempt you into trying to contact them and get back together. Unfriend them so that you can move on to bigger and better things!unfriend
  2. You won’t compare yourself: Being able to see what they are up to and who they are starting to date hurts. By unfriending them you are preventing yourself from the hurt that comes from comparing yourself to their new boo. It is easy to wonder who is doing better right now, you or him. Did they start dating someone new and you are still single? Did they get a better job than you have? Who cares what they are doing. And who cares who they moved on to. Don’t compare yourself to their new love interest. Your life is just as amazing as theirs, and you are just as great of a person as their new boo, so deleting them allows you to enjoy the ups and downs of your own life.
  3. You will be more of a mystery: If you want to seem like more of a mystery, and like you have moved on to better things, deleting your ex is a great idea. They won’t have access to your profiles and can’t see how you are doing, so they will become curious. If you are friends with them, all they have to do is pull up your profile to see how you are. If you aren’t friends, they actually have to reach out and ask you. If you are wanting to re-connect with them, this is the best way to do so!

Clicking that “unfriend” button is one of the best things you can do for yourself!

XOXO, Chels

Being friends with your ex can be a really great thing. It can also be a really hard thing to achieve! Here are a few pointers to help you become friends with your ex.

1. Make sure that you tow are really interested in being just friends. If you want to start a friendship with an ex with hopes of getting back together, then you are not ready to be friends. Take some time to really think about if you are really ready to be just friends. An easy way to see if you are ready is to ask yourself how you would feel if you heard that your ex was dating someone new. If the thought makes you mad or insanely jealous, then you are not ready!chelsea crockett ex

2. Don’t rush. You may be eager to see your ex again, but keep in mind that you may still have feelings for them and feel emotionally tied to them. Wait to begin a friendship until your emotional feelings have lessened.

3. When you finally do start to hang out with your ex, dress appropriately. You want to look good in front of your ex, but you also don’t want to send the wrong message! Also, when you do meet with your ex, do so in a public place so that you can avoid awkward moments alone!

Like I said, being friends with your ex can be good! You just need to know the right way to go about it.

XOXO, Chels
