Unfriend, delete and block your ex by February 13.
In our recent breakup survey that over 1,000 of you participated in (thanks!!) 71 percent of respondents said they think about their ex too much and 48 percent (including 42 percent of married people!) said they look at their ex's Facebook or other social networking profile too often. Clearly this is a widespread problem.
Our mission at YourTango is to help you live your best love life, but you can't do that when you're tethered to the past. Keeping in touch with, or even just keeping tabs on an ex can make it harder to embrace the present, whether you're healing from the breakup, looking for new love, or embracing a new relationship. That's why we've declared February 13 as the first annual "Break Up With Your Ex" day. Valentine's Day falls on February 14, and we want you to be completely free of your ex on that symbolic day of love.
