Just Hear Me Out: Surprising Reasons You Should Be Friends With Your Ex On Facebook

January 7, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin




Let’s get this out of the way: most people cannot be friends with their ex on Facebook. It takes a person with an absurd amount of self control to watch their ex’s life pass by on Facebook, day in and day out, and not send a message eventually. It can slow down your healing process tenfold. It can depress you. However, if you’re passed the point of being emotionally drained, being friends with your ex on Facebook can shed a lot of light on that relationship for you. Here’s why.

    I haven’t clicked through them all so I can only comment on 1-8.. I think these are terrible reasons. No one should keep their ex on facebook, even if the break up was amicable you still need a no contact period. Facebook does not equal realism. People post things based on how they wish to be percieved. If he’s posting photos/comments of all the parties and girls he’s meeting that is not necessary true. Alternatively, if he is posting statuses about staying in and reading poetry, that does not mean he isn’t hitting up a different girl every hour, he just doesn’t want the world to know.
