Breakups are messy. It'll bring out the worst, before it brings out the best in you. But before you go online and make it messier than it already is, please go over this list of things you shouldn't do on your social media accounts after The Breakup:

1. Don't be in denial. Don't keep that "In A Relationship" status on your timeline, when everyone knows you're already single. But don't pretend that you're doing fine either. Deal with your emotions offline. If you want to cry, do so. Stop keeping it in because, sooner or later, you're going to burst and it's going to be uglier and messier if that happens. (Tip: don't add that on your profile in the first place! Saves you all the trouble of figuring out what to do when you breakup with someone.)

2. Don't post anything on his wall. That will just make things awkward for both of you, and for your common friends. We know there's a part of you that wants the whole world to know he hurt you so much, but does it really have to come to a point where you're humiliating him already? Point is, respect him—respect the fact that he has made you happy in the past and that he'll always be a part of your life.

3. Don't treat the Internet as your diary. It's your account and you have the freedom to post whatever you want. But girl, be a little responsible. Every single time you're tempted to post something bad or angry or sad, ask yourself this question, "Will I be proud of myself someday for putting this online?"

4. Don't beg for him to come back. No, not even offline. Girl, just don't. You broke up for a reason: Because things aren't working out for both of you. Take this time in your life to do what you want to do and love yourself a little bit more. Hate to break it to you, darling, but if he's already made his choice, not even you begging him to love you again will make him come back.

5. Don't be a creeper. Seeing all of his latest updates having fun and living his life won't do you good. Staring at his new profile photo won't make you feel better. Do yourself a favor and just hit that exit button before you have another meltdown again, screaming, "Life is so unfairrr!"

6. Don't post things about him. You may not have written his name on your status messages or tweets, but we don't need a college diploma to figure out you're talking about The Ex. It doesn't even matter if you're talking about your good moments or not. Point is, the more you talk and entertain thoughts about him, the longer you'll get stuck in that cold and dark place.

7. Don't tell the world you're miserable. We know you are. We want to be there for you during this difficult time in your life, but you really don't have to post about it online. Smartphones were invented so you can send us an SOS message. Trust us, a text message is enough to send us right at your doorstep with a bucket of ice cream and a few DVDs in our hands.
