Why does everyone stalk their exes.Why are you letting someone occupy space in your head, “rent-free” ? You are wasting time on moving on and prolonging the pain. Just try to remember why the relationship ended.We’re all guilty of checking in on our exes on social media, especially right after a breakup. Even if we’re not interested in seeing that person anymore, curiosity gets the best of us and we can’t help to check in from time to time.Is he in a new relationship, or is he dating some one else these are some of the questions that comes to our mind.One might feel weird for doing it, but it’s actually a very natural thing to do. we want to fundamentally believe that no one can replace us. We want affirmation that we’re valued or a good person, so we’re hoping that without us they’re going to be a little bit sad or suffer a little bit. I stopped looking at my ex boyfriends social media randomly one day and never went back. I didnt know when i’d stop. I knew it would just happen randomly. And it did. I stopped asking my friends to look, i stopped looking, etc. It’s just a natural thing we do. We are human…we cant change anything we do while we are in an emotional state. We act emotionally.
- It might seem weird but a study found that a lot of people on Facebook have a tendency to check on their exes.
- Mental Floss, a media and technology expert, counsels that one should not feel guilty about checking on their exes because it is wired into us to check on people.
- The study found a direct relationship between jealousy and time spent on Facebook. The more people gather information, the more they tend to keep on doing so.
