According to experts, unfollowing an ex on social media is absolutely necessary, especially immediately following a breakup.
"For the sake of your emotional well-being, you should always unfollow your ex from social media, especially if you’re not over [them]!," Erica Gordon, millennial dating expert, told Elite Daily.
Trina Leckie, breakup coach, agrees:
"In order to be able to move on and heal, it is best to go with the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach,” she advises. “A broken heart combined with constant reminders of your ex can be like self-torture. You will just prolong your suffering and make things a lot more difficult for yourself. There really is no advantage to staying connected on social media after a breakup.”
