What’s The Craziest Thing You've Done After A Breakup?


By Katerina Torres

Have you ever had to pull yourself from being 12 weeks deep into your ex’s tagged photos on Instagram? You’re not the only one. Many of us resort to a little social media stalking to keep tabs on an ex, especially when the breakup is still so fresh. A study by Superdrug showed that Americans don’t consider it that creepy to check someone’s social media multiple days in a row. On a scale of 1-10, men rated this behavior a 4.4 while women gave it a 5.0, making social media stalking only mid-level creepy.
