Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms make it easy to keep tabs on everyone. From your old school friends who have now probably moved to different parts of the world, your college friends, colleagues and whether you’re willing to admit it or not, even your ex who you haven’t seen or heard from in a long time after your break-up or divorce.

Maybe you decided to do some snooping on a particularly uneventful day and to your utmost shock, your ex-boyfriend or husband has added a new life event – Engaged. Here’s why you stalk your ex on Facebook.

Irrespective of how long it has been since both of you decided to part ways, you feel a sudden and intense pang in your heart. The announcement can unleash an overwhelming amount of emotions.

All at once you feel profound sadness, anger, bitterness and you’re left completely bewildered by your emotions. After all, you’re no longer in love with your ex and wouldn’t consider getting back with them even if they were single. Maybe you moved on from the ending of the relationship a while back and now you’re with someone else.
