Now that you have all your tears out of your system, it’s time to get your ex out of your technology! It’s pretty impossible to get over someone when they’re bombarding you via the Internet. Defriend him, delete his texts, phone number, and emails, and unfollow him on Twitter.
The goal is to completely avoid contacting this jerk at all. And don’t avoid this step using the excuse that you guys agreed to be friends. Being friends is fine, but buddying up too early is going to just be like picking at a scab–it’s gratifying in the moment, but in the end, it makes the wound last longer and feel worse (and scar!). If he’s truly the kind of friend you’d want to have, he’ll understand your need for space right now.
If you’re constantly updated on his life, it’s going to be almost impossible to move on with yours!
