Learn how the digital dating world is making it hard to delete ex's from your life.
NEW YORK, NY (Feb. 1, 2013) -- A new survey* from YourTango.com—the digital leader in love and relationships—reveals that 67 percent of readers—including 46 percent of married users—think about their exes too much. A whopping 80 percent of respondents want to stop thinking about their exes altogether.
Cutting ties post-breakup is harder than ever given the digital connections we increasingly forge. Respondents agree "his/her online presence (on Facebook, Twitter, etc.)" is one of the top three triggers of unwanted memories, following seeing an ex and hearing a reminiscent song.
The problem? Nearly half of respondents say that attachment to their exes interferes with their current relationships or prevents them from finding new love.
That's why YourTango has kicked off the third annual "Break Up With Your Ex" campaign, culminating on February 13th. YourTango encourages people to cut ties with their exes, both online and off, and offers an abundance of assistance to do so.
