Social media is incredibly problematic for people going through breakups. When you’ve just ended it with somebody, you’re fragile, easily influenced and lonely. You’re not in the normal, stable state of mind you have to be in to brush off all of the tragic stories, nasty comment fights and engagement announcements on Facebook. You certainly aren’t strong enough to see any post from your ex. If he so much as checks into a restaurant you think that he is not taking this breakup very seriously! He should be wallowing at home like you are! If another female posts anything on his wall—anything at all—you’re up until 2 am analyzing her social media accounts. Social media is a miserable place for the heartbroken, but you can make it even more miserable if you partake in common post-breakup habits. Here is how to navigate social media after a breakup.

I was sixteen when my heart was broken for the first time. I remember clutching my chest, convinced the muscle was going to fall out of my chest. It took me a week to realize that it wouldn’t, a month to stop gripping my fists in anger and a year to breathe without a tinge of sadness stinging my core. After that first heartache, I took note of all the things that helped my healing process. When the serious relationships of my early twenties began to fall apart, with each one, I hurt a little less each time.
Articles, advice, and books on how to tag him, bag him and snag him surround us. However, it’s rare that these texts dwindle on how to cure yourself when he leaves. A lot of women actually prolong the process; listening to sad love songs, flipping through Facebook photos (to delete them) and analyzing every instance that led up to the relationship’s demise. This is not the way to heal. In fact, I’ve found ten ways that help assist the mending of my sorrow:
Romantic comedies will have you believing that all we women want to do after a break up is cry for a couple of minutes, eat ice cream, stop brushing our teeth and spend and entire day on the couch.
While this may be true in parts, that’s not exactly how the real world works.
Find out what’s true and what’s false when it comes to break ups and getting over the ex at Your Tango.com.
Speaking of getting over the ex, be sure to join us tomorrow for our Twitter Party from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Be sure to follow Madame Noire and Your Tango @YourTango.

You might be reading this title thinking, why would I dump my ex? ‘Clearly, I’ve already dumped him (or he dumped me) or he wouldn’t be my ex, now would he. Duh.’ Well there’s no need to get smart missy. We all know just because you’ve technically broken up with someone doesn’t mean that you’re over him or her emotionally and psychologically.
Well, lucky for you, we’re here to help you with that.
We’re partnering with our friends at Your Tango.com to host a Twitter party to help you move on.
Check out the details below:
When: Wednesday, February 1, 3-6 PM EST
