4. The Unfriend. When it comes to "unfriending," please take my advice. As soon as you know it's really over, get rid of your ex on Facebook. There is absolutely no need to torture yourself by obsessively checking his or her page and seeing how they've moved on without you. You don’t need to look at pictures or read their status updates. If you broke up amicably and have decided to remain actual friends, fantastic, but if you have a broken heart, eliminate your ex from your cyber circle as soon as possible.
Right now when it comes to the dating game, singles are relying too much on electronic communication instead of actual talking. More often than not I’m being asked out via text, e-mail and even Facebook message. I went on a date last week through the FDP with a guy who actually called me to set up the date (Don't worry, I’ll keep you posted).
Don't let Facebook be another way of communicating with the person you’re seeing. In the early stages, when you’re still nervous and feeling each other out — the sound of a person’s voice versus their online status update or text — makes a world of difference. And always for the better.
