Should I delete my ex's friends and family from facebook?

My ex and I (2 year relationship) broke up 6 weeks ago. It was not a happy split and we have not had any contact since then. I have blocked him but not his friends and family. His dad still likes my posts every now and again. I have unfollowed them to stop the temptation to stalk. I did however look on his dad's page today and saw a picture of my ex. I thought I was doing well and getting over him but seeing the picture has made me sad again, to see him getting on with his life with his friends and family who I used to spend time with. It's like I was never a part of their lives. Am I being really self centred and pathetic? And should I block them all so I won't be able to see any of their profiles and therefore, him again?

  • Removing them from your social media will definitely help you move forward. It took me ages to actually remove my ex and her family from my Facebook and it messed my mood up each time my news feed had pictures or a status from them. There is no real need to stay in contact with an ex's family, as sad as it is to walk away from it all there is no way to fully recover from a breakup if still holding on. I actually felt better quickly after doing it and moved on faster after it too.

  • First of all, you're not being self-centered or pathetic! If being friends with your ex's friends and family cause you to tempted to talk or cause you affliction, then you should definitely remove them from your friends and contacts list! I know how it feels and your breakup is still fresh and it is the hardest part of a breakup, which is to move on. At first when you remove them from Facebook, you will hate it and no matter what, you will be curious to see what's going on. The best is to just block them. The worst it can do to still have them as friends is to just cause you more pain.

  • Unless there is a chance that you and your ex will get back together, I think you should delete them from your Facebook. They are all old memories that would be heartbreaking to come across again. You aren't being self-centered and pathetic. You're just wondering why they cut off ties with you, which is what I would have thought if I was in the same situation. They were part of your life and now they aren't which sucks. If you delete them from Facebook that's just one big step from moving on with your life like he is too. Just take care of yourself :)
