It is fact of life now that when you breakup there is the social media unfriending frenzy. It is probably a cathartic ritual for some, a little FU with every delete. The logical side of me knows this step is the best for both of us and allows each of us to move on freely, but the emotional side, which is currently in charge, hates each broken connection.
I was not ready for these additional virtual breakups, just like I wasn’t ready for the real dumping, however, my ex was able to get right on it.
Facebook was first. I had deleted him in the past when I was unsure we would be able to be friends but this was the first time he had binned me and considering he is friends with every other one of his exes, it was a bit painful. He does not want me in his life on any level.
Because I am who I am, I sent him an email to acknowledge this closed chapter. It was nice, it was honest, it was not necessary.
We both played The Simpsons: Tapped Out and that silly game had just come out with a Valentine’s update. He was kind enough to delete me from that app so I would not get fake game valentines from him for the next 3 weeks.
I took care of Foursquare, since I don’t need to know where he visits anymore and went through my various apps deleting such things as weather alerts for his location. I am probably forgetting something that will pop up later and slap me in the face but for now, it seems settled.
