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.
