We obviously live in an age where we get information fast, at a push of a button! (Thanks google!) But what’s the right way to handle facebook, twitter, or even, LinkedIn after a terrible breakup?
Let’s take this imaginary example and dissect it, shall we? Let’s say you’ve been dating someone for 4 years; four solid years. In fact, for a year, you lived together. Then suddenly, out of the blue, you breakup. Now, it’s been a whole month and you’re starting to feel like yourself again! You’re slowly (BUT SURELY) putting back the pieces of yourself, regaining your independence, accepting the pillow as your only sure of affection at night. It’s all good.
Suddenly, you’re getting random texts from friends and family, asking “yo, what’s up?” because you haven’t let the world know you’ve broken up with your significant other yet. Hey, at least you deactivated facebook, go you! Well, they’re asking because your ex has pictures up of them with another person. Not in the “HEY, we just met and isn’t this crazy!!” but as in arms around each other, kissy faces being thrown about and a level of comfort that shouldn’t be there after a month of dating. Now, we can say that everyone moves at their own pace, but in your opinion, when is the right time to throw your new relationship up on facebook or twitter? Is it ever okay to flaunt it so soon after a breakup or am I being overly sensitive?
