Dear Lulu: Help! My ex won’t leave me alone on social media. He constantly “likes” other people’s comments to me. This would be fine if we were actually friends, but the thing is, we’re not really in touch. I don’t want to delete him over it because it seems petty. Is there anyway I can hint for him to leave me alone? — Not Over It
Dear NOI: Take a step back and listen to what you’re saying. Why are you worried about the actions of someone that you’re no longer involved with?
If someone you’re connected with on social media is bothering you, there are so many options now not to see their stuff. You need to ask yourself: Are you lapping up this attention, and hoping it means something more?
Move on, find someone else — or better yet, find happiness within yourself. Then you’ll stop feeling so pressed like a panini about what your ex is doing on social media!
