Stalk. Die. Mine.

 

I live for stalking

 

I live for stalking. But there is something about a breakup where you turn into a psycho bastard. In your head, you’re incredibly calculated. You memorise how many people your ex is following on each social media platform, you notice who is liking his tweets or Instagram posts a little too frequently, and you look at which tweets and images he has been liking too. I am anyway! I’m a lunatic…

 

Oh, he’s liked somebodies picture. Well, that’s it! They’re dating. Here’s my replacement! 

 

You sit there working yourself up as you envision how you would kill him. Nothing too extravagant though, you don’t care enough to give him a fancy exit. Then you screenshot his picture and send it to your friends – so they can tell you you’re more attractive. We all do it!

I’m happy to admit that I’ve been doing this. I have no shame. I think it’s a part of a breakup which everybody goes through. Some choose to block their ex on social media and be done with them – my usual tactics, while others choose to keep them. But Craig and I are trying to build a friendship – so I think blocking him is out of the question.

 

Then you screenshot his picture and send it to your friends – so they can tell you you’re more attractive.

 

What is it? You know you’re no longer together, but it still feels like he is yours and you’re his. I’ve been asked to be taken on dates and my instant response is no. By saying yes, I feel as though I am doing something I shouldn’t be! It’s such a weird transition from being in a relationship to coming to terms with your new single life. It’s crazy how differently people chose to handle situations. Friends and family have given me opposing advise. Some say to block, others say to keep. What’s important is that I handle it my way, the way I want to.

 

I’d love to know who chooses to block their ex’s and move on and who chooses to remain friends and be civil. Comment below!

    Don’t block …. my ex and I are in the same situation. The love hasn’t gone and I still feel like I’m his and he’s mine. It’s awful 😔 I think when one of you sleeps with someone new and the other finds out is when you’ll make your final decision… my ex slept with someone and I was distraught…it made my stomach sick… BUT I chose to move past it and stay in contact because regardless the love is still there. I don’t know which option is the right one… but if neither of you are ready or willing to say goodbye forever, then don’t (no matter what people say.)

      Aw Liv!

      I agree with you. He lost something amazing, so more fool him.

      Hope you are well xxx

    I’ve tried to be friends with an ex. Never worked out with any of them; they all wound up doing/saying something that irritated me. They are an “ex” for a reason – you didn’t agree on something that became the defining point of your separation. At least, that’s how I feel!

      Also adding – I tend to block exes who are curious and make it a rule to never click on their social media profiles or their potential SOs – curiosity killed the cat, why waste time mulling over people who aren’t playing a major role in your life? It does not benefit you or your well-being 🙂
