Falling in love with a passionate woman is easy. Just ask all of the men who have dated Taylor Swift. Breaking up with a passionate woman is a little more difficult. Again, just ask all of the men who have dated Taylor Swift.
Unfortunately, after a breakup, passion can quickly turn into something out of Gone Girl. Swift may have made a career out of channeling her post-breakup angst into hit songs, but most women aren’t Swift and cannot take their frustration out in the form of a multi-million-dollar pop star career. Most women are left with the one shred of you that they can hold onto: your social media presence.
Since the advent of social media, crazy ex-girlfriends can now keep tabs on almost everything going on in their ex-boyfriends' lives, all from the comfort of a computer screen. Between profile pictures, tweets, check-ins, status updates and likes, there are many, many booby traps that can push an ex-girlfriend from rowdy but harmless Gloria Cleary in Wedding Crashers to Amazing Amy in Gone Girl. These ten pointers should help make the transition from lovers to exes a little bit smoother and less crazy.
10 Do not "like" any of her new pictures
9 Do not "like" any selfies posted by another woman
8 Do not post any pictures of you and another girl
7 Do not comment on her friends’ statuses
6 Do not make a status or tweet about a TV show you’re watching
5 Do not open any messages she sends you
4 Do not delete pictures of you and her
3 Do not RSVP an event on Facebook
2 Do not check-in anywhere
1 Do not defriend her
Sure, defriending your ex may seem like the easy answer. You won’t have to monitor everything anymore. You can post whatever pictures or statuses or tweets you like. This is not the answer. First of all, ex-girlfriends are not in it alone. They come with an army of besties who will screenshot the shit out of anything you post that could interest your ex. Also, it’s probably been quite sometime since you were smitten with her and requested her on all social media platforms so it’s doubtful that you remember her privacy settings. Defriending her may mean that you are not privy to the things that she posts, like the fact that she’ll be at a bar this coming Friday to which you planned on going. Defriending her may seem like answer to your prayers, especially when she makes a status that is a veiled comment on how much she misses you, but toughening it out and staying friends with her on social media can help you avoid walking into the lion’s den on a Friday night.
