There’s advice on social media about how to get an ex back. People will tell you Facebook stalk your ex. They will see how much you think of them. Or they’ll tell you not to message your ex too soon after a breakup. It’s okay to send a text every so often if they don’t respond.
However, another important piece of this puzzle is “Should You Remove Your Ex on Social Media if You Want to Get Back Together?” Yes, you should remove your ex on social media if you want to get back together.
Your ex is trying to get a reaction from you. They’re trying to make you feel something so they can use it against you. Of course, it’s possible that your ex misses you and wants to make you feel something so they can use it against you.
There are a few reasons why you should remove your ex from social media. They are the following:
1. It helps to move on time even if the ex is not coming back
It’s always better to move on time than to hang on, even if your ex isn’t coming back. You don’t want to continue a relationship with someone who doesn’t want to be with you; they need their space too.
It can be hard to accept that sometimes relationships just don’t work out, but once you’ve accepted this fact and moved on with your life, it will help keep things fresh and new in the future.
2. It adds to one’s dignity
It’s indeed good to keep your dignity and not show weakness. But there is a difference between “being strong” and “keeping your dignity” (which is a lot higher than just being strong). When you are truly confident, you are happy with yourself and do not need to prove anything to anyone else. You don’t need to prove anything about yourself because you already know you’re great.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we had some fears that were holding us back from being our best selves, but if there were one thing I could tell my readers, it would be: YOU ARE GREAT, AMAZING, AND IMPORTANT. YOU HAVE SO MUCH to OFFER, AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND ENCHANTING TO EVERYONE AROUND YOU.
3. You may regret unfollowing your ex on social media
You may regret unfollowing your ex on social media. Indeed, you don’t want to be reminded of them, and it’s wonderful to have the option of not seeing their posts or pictures. But those reminders can also be helpful if you consider getting back together with them in the future.
If you decide to get back together with your ex, seeing what they’ve been up to without having to search out their profile manually would make it much easier for both of you when things start off as smoothly as they did before (i.e., no awkwardness). This is especially true if one or both of you has moved on since breaking up. You’ll be able to see who they’re dating now, so there won’t be any surprises later on down the road.
4. They’re trying to get an emotional reaction from you
It’s essential to remember that they’re trying to get an emotional reaction from you. This can be hard to remember, especially since it makes you feel like a pawn in their game. They want to know that they still have power over you and can hurt your feelings anytime. It’s also likely that they’re trying to gauge whether or not there is still any interest on your part (even if it’s just friendship) and whether or not you’re still thinking about them.
If this is the case, it might be time for a break from social media. For me, I don’t want this person in my life anymore (and possibly ever again), and for them, they should probably focus on themselves rather than someone else who isn’t interested in them anymore.
5. It can give your brain a breather, so it builds new neural pathways
Removing your ex from your social media is a great way to give your brain a break and let it build new neural pathways. When you’re constantly seeing their posts pop up on your phone or computer, you have the opportunity to ruminate and obsess over all the things that went wrong in the relationship, which isn’t healthy for anyone. Removing them from your life will allow you time away from the negative qualities that caused the separation in the first place.
When people realize they want to get back together with an ex partner after a breakup, they often start by stalking their social media profiles obsessively, trying to find out what they’ve been up to since then.
Removing your ex from social media removes any temptation or desire on either side of the equation because there aren’t any constant reminders of each other’s existence anymore.
It’s a good idea to remove your ex from social media. The only reason to keep them on your pages is if you want to keep tabs on them and their life, which is likely because you have not yet moved on.
It’s true that sometimes removing an ex can cause them more pain than it may be worth for you, but most of the time, it doesn’t matter in the long run. If anything, it will give both of you the space needed for healing and moving forward with your lives without constantly being reminded of each other’s existence (and maybe influence).
I hope you can take this advice and apply it to your situation. Sometimes, getting back together after a breakup is not an easy process. However, I believe everyone deserves to be with someone they love and who loves them back. If you feel like you still want to get back together with your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, then both of you need to make some changes for this relationship to work out successfully again
