A few years back, I was in a pretty bad place. My boyfriend at the time, who I had thought would love me forever, had recently dumped me, leaving me to become the original Taylor Swift -- minus the songwriting thing.
In the days before social media existed, you would get over breakups the good old-fashioned way: by stalking his friends at their place of work while threatening for details of his life for "closure" and listening to sad songs on repeat. It was that simple.
Today, we have a lot more access to people via social media, which makes breaking up, moving on, and creating genuine connections a lot harder. Why? How many of us have found ourselves believing that what our ex or crush posts on Facebook is truth? How many of us have obsessed over the "like" he handed his high school sweetheart (who is recently single, might I add?) when she posted a photo of her adorable pug?
