There’s no
denying it. Breaking up is oh-so hard to do, especially in today’s 24-hour
techno-savvy world of Facebook, Twitter, and post-breakup booty calls arranged
via sex-ting. If you’re nursing a broken heart, be sure to avoid these
emotionally costly social networking mistakes…

Heartbreak Mistake #1: Do NOT stay
connected to your ex on Facebook and Twitter

Yes, social
networking has made keeping up with friends both near and far incredibly easy
and convenient. What it’s also done is make healing a broken heart
excruciatingly difficult.  Whereas once
upon a time, we risked getting caught if we drove by our ex’s house or dialed
his digits and hung up when he answered, in today’s techno-savvy world we can
cyberstalk our ex in our pajamas, from the safe glow of our computer screens,
at 3 a.m. If you find yourself lurking on your ex’s social networking pages,
keeping tabs on who he’s talking to and what he’s doing, you may need an  intervention from your Boohoo Crew.  Seriously, call one of them immediately and
have them come over to exorcise your ex from your online life.

Heartbreak Mistake #2: Do NOT blog
about the breakup on Facebook and Twitter

Don't Let Money Put A Tax On Your Relationship

By

Growing up, my parents argued about money constantly. Having been raised by a single mother in extreme poverty, my father worried there was never enough. Having grown up somewhat entitled, my mother believed that as long as there were checks left in the checkbook, she had spending power. And while my family was firmly middle class, many of my childhood memories ... Read more

"The Force Wasn't With Us" — A Star Wars Breakup

By

In 2004, I launched The Breakup Chronicles because I had just had my heart smashed to smithereens for the umpteenth time and needed to figure out why I was getting love so wrong, so consistently. The common denominator was most definitely me. In writing about some of my key relationships, I needed to figure out what I did wrong, how I contributed to the demise ... Read more
