7 Things to Do So Your Ex Stops Following You on Social Media

I don’t believe in being friends with my exes. Oftentimes, they still want to shack up with me. Other times, I just hate their guts for hurting my tender heart. But in this day and age, distancing myself from my exes isn’t as easy. I can’t just stop calling them or change my number. Because of social media, my ex-boyfriends can keep tabs on me and stay in my life … forever!

Take Twitter, for example. Sure, I could stop following my ex on Twitter and block him from my account. But all he needs to do is go to my Twitter feed online. If my profile is public (it is, because of work), he can see my tweets even if I’ve banished him from the bird.

Facebook is a bigger beast. I unfriended my ex, but we have mutual friends. So he can see when a friend likes my update, and I can see his comments on a thread if I commented on said thread.

Oh, the complications that arise due to social media!

But it doesn’t have to be this hard. There are ways to disconnect (literally) from your ex. Let’s get a little dirty, shall we? Here are seven things to do so your ex stops following you on social media.

    I often tweet about dates because of work and because I love to talk about my love life. What I didn't realize is that my ex was not too happy about my escapades. That's because he was following me on Twitter. And I began dating only a week after we broke up. His ego may have been bruised. He stopped following me shortly after I tweeted about how hot my then-date was and how beautiful our babies would be.

    Take tons of pics of your fabulous single life, like the photo I took of me and Anderson Riley (The Zesty Guy) at a Hollywood party. This way, your ex understands that you're just as hot now as you were when you were together. And you're still living a great life without him!

    No man wants to read negative things about him on social media. So, that's a way to get him to leave you alone. He won't want to chat you up on Facebook if you are posting status updates about his filthy habits, cheating ways, or how boring he was in the sack. But proceed with caution. Trash talking your ex on social media can make you look worse than him.

  • Like All His Status Updates 7 of 8
    Like Facebook Status

    If you want to be really aggressive, you can take the scary stalker approach. Your ex may be spying on you via social media, but liking every status update and picture and retweeting all his content makes you look obsessed. An obsessed woman is one a man, especially an ex, doesn't want around. It will do the trick, but you will look insane.

  • Unfriend All His Friends 8 of 8

    If you're friends with all his friends on Facebook, your ex will have access. So, unfriend his sister, mother, best friend, drinking buddy — anyone that is connected to him. Remember, he can see your mutual friend's "likes" even if you've unfriended him. If you've built great bonds with his people and have real mutual friends, you can still hang out. Just leave it off social media.
