Don’t tag them

Unless you’re issuing a joint statement, which clearly was not the case with A-Boogie and Ella Bandz, you should probably avoid tagging your ex in the post announcing your breakup. For one, it’s unnecessary. Two, it will make the awkward situation of telling the world that your relationship failed even more awkward by putting your ex on Front Street — unless, of course, that was your intention in the first place. Oftentimes, when a person is tagged in a status or photo, they will feel pressure to respond. In the event that the breakup was not mutual or even if it was, tagging an ex in your breakup announcement is setting the stage for messiness.
