Study: Being Friends With Your Ex On Facebook Could Ruin Your Relationship

 Your ex is your ex for a reason, and now science confirms it’s best not to stalk him or her via social media after you split. Kansas State University researcher Joyce Baptist says, “Social media can enhance romantic relationships when it’s used to stay in touch throughout the day or honor your partner’s achievements, but there are pitfalls to avoid that could damage the relationship.” Researchers looked at 7,000 couples who used social media, and found those who were more open to “boundary crossing,” or keeping lines of communication open with a previous flings or attractive people, tended to have more problems in their relationships. Baptist says to avoid the issue couples should talk about boundaries and guidelines as far as staying in touch with exes, and adds, “If you are serious about your relationship, cut off those ties.” (Elite Daily
