10 Things To Never Post On Facebook After a Breakup
It’s over. Before you take to Facebook to let the world know of your newfound singledom, remember these simple rules about what not to post online following a breakup.
1. Rants. Don’t complain about this and that or recount every event. Facebook is not your diary. . Just because you’re on an emotional roller coaster doesn’t mean that those ups and downs should be available for public consumption. Journal in private. Cry with close friends. Just stay away from your computer when you’re tempted to chronicle every stage of the breakup.
2. Sappy breakup songs. Put them on your iPod or our fan. More so listen to some hip hop or dub step instead. No one listens to breakup songs apart from the hurting ones. Don’t keep quoting song lyrics, hoping that people might note and sympathize with you. No one actually cares. Everyone has their life to live. So just stay calm and relax
3. Denial photos and messages. Take down that profile pic with you as a couple. Don’t post a message on their wall as if you’re still friends. Remove your relationship status (with as little fanfare as possible).
4. Resist the Facebook rebound. Don’t post photos of you with cute members of the opposite sex. Don’t message other exes or cute single “friends” out of discomfort for your new singleness. If you catch yourself posting anything that you hope will make your ex jealous, don’t do it. It’s a transparent move that will only make you look bad.
5. Cryptic notes about your ex or your emotional state. In fact, as a general note, don’t post cryptic notes on Facebook ever. If you don’t want people to know why you’re sad, don’t insinuate that you’re blue.
6. Don’t get friends involved. Don’t comment on wall posts by any of his/her friends. Don’t force mutual friends to defriend him in order to stay in your good books. If you have to hide statuses for a time, do so.
7. Revenge posts or attacks. Keep it classy. Repeat this motto: No slander, no revenge posts — ever. Do not attack your ex. Don’t be a psycho.
8. Don’t try to convince them to return, or publicly beg for forgiveness. This never works. It only shows desperation. If the two of you really need to talk, do so in person.
9. Don’t use statuses and photos to announce that you’re having the best or worst time ever. Don’t try to make your ex miserable. (Nor should you be assuming that they are reading your Facebook wall. You shouldn’t be reading theirs. It’s a waste of time.) If the two of you are meant to be back together, you will. Don’t force it.
10. Never admit to Facebook stalking. If you find yourself checking out their Facebook page, never comment that you’ve been there. Better yet, don’t check their page or timeline. Don’t write a status about the picture they just posted or the life they are leading without you.-niaje.com
