Have you ever been tempted to check your ex's Facebook profile after a breakup? Does your spouse maintain contact with their old flames on Twitter?
If the answer to all of these questions is yes, a serious issue may be at hand
We tend to continue to keep track of our ex’s on social media just to check on them. One click on their page will lead to you checking their profile every hour on the hour just to see if they miss you. Even worse it can cause you to want to get back with that person even after they have done you wrong.
In this video, YourTango Senior VP of Experts Melanie Gorman and relationship experts Mary Kay Cocharo, Jacqueline Williams, Lou Paget and Larry Michel tackled a tough topic for those going through a breakup: is social media making it impossible for you to get over your ex?. Through technology, it's easier than ever to stay connected, but as you attempt to move on, are you better off deleting your ex from your "friends" list?
You can’t truly get over someone unless you cut ties to them. Constantly checking their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media make you second guess yourself.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
