5 Ways To Get Over Your Ex: Move On Already! (#DumpUrEx)

In the pre-Internet age, getting over an ex was pretty straightforward. You took his picture off the mantel, avoided places he might be, and gave back that comfy sweatshirt you loved sleeping in (or possibly burned it).

Nowadays, breaking up is a lot more complicated—Facebook and Twitter provide you with up-to-the-minute details about your ex's new life, your cell phone is full of pictures of the two of you together and your iTunes playlist still houses the "For My Greatest Love" playlist. These and other digital reminders make it virtually impossible to move on.

With this in mind, YourTango is again hosting the 2nd annual Break Up With Your Ex campaign from February 1-13 — and this video tells you how.
