Break Up With Your Ex Day 2013 has arrived! For those of you who are still texting, Tweeting at, Facebooking with, calling, daydreaming about or otherwise feeling hung up on a past love, today is your day. It's time to cut ties — digitally, physically and emotionally — just in time for Valentine's Day.
If you're like 80 percent of readers recently surveyed, you want to stop thinking about your ex. Our third annual Break Up With Your Ex campaign is all about helping you do this: unfriend him on Facebook, unfollow on Twitter, delete his number from your phone and his IM name from your chat service. The old adage "out of sight, out of mind" was never truer than in the case of forgetting an ex!
