Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, Hi5, whichever social network you prefer, all have the possibility of sabotaging your chances of getting back together with your ex girlfriend or ex boyfriend. If you make common mistakes on these sites you could lose your ex forever.
I am going to focus mainly on Facebook in this article because it’s what I have the most experience with, however you can apply much of what you read in here to other networks.
The first error that people make after they’ve broken up with someone is to change their relationship status to “single” then to “it’s complicated” then to nothing at all, etc. This can be compared to a cry for help, it’s attention seeking behavior. It’s needy, and it’s too much information. What happens is you will send the wrong message to your ex, and you’ll appear slightly obsessed and unstable, even if you had your best intentions or were just ‘playing around’ with your status.
The second error is providing way too much information in your status updates. You don’t need to constantly provide information like “Beth is… depressed.” or “Jon is… bored.” Negative status updates can only make you look worse. When you’ve broken up with someone you shouldn’t be hoping for pity from your ex or from your friends through status updates. You could use a status update to show others how well you’re doing, though. That’s not considered needy, as long as you don’t abuse it.
A third caution is to not instantly delete all pictures of you and your ex if you’ve just broken up. This sends out a message that you are heavily affected and this is how you’re coping. It’s better to untag images of you if you feel like it; it’s less noticeable than deleting images, and if you still want a chance to get him back in the future you shouldn’t be acting in haste now.
Sites like Facebook and MySpace are great tools for staying in contact with old friends, ex boyfriends and ex girlfriends. Never underestimate the power of the information that you send out, consider that your ex will find your updates more interesting than anyone elses, because they will.
There are many other pieces of advice for not driving away your ex girl or ex guy, not just through Facebook, but through real-life situations like phone calls, texts, face-to-face meetings, and more. Take a look at the resources available and cure your breakup pain.
