With social media going completely crazy over the last few years, it’s given us a platform to connect with anyone and everyone around the world.

But when a couple decides to breakup, for whatever reason, it could become complicated. The first question that goes through your mind: should I still keep them on social media?

If you decide to keep them, let me tell you that curiosity will be your own worst enemy because you will inevitably check your exes profile and see what they are up to - which may cause more harm than good. Not to mention if you see them moving on with someone else.

However, if you decide to delete them from your social media, there could be a possibility that you may offend them. But in all honesty, it could avoid the heartache and pain from 'seeing' them and who knows, if you guys do decide to go on a break, you can always add them back when things are worked out.

I guess it all depends on how a couple chooses to part, right?
