Dear DiS relationship advice group. I split up with my long term girlfriend of 5 years a few months back...well kind of told me that she doesn't see a future with me blah blah blah, was/is horrible at the moment and guessing many people have probably had the same gut painful feeling at some point in their life.
What I'm wondering is what people do in regards to social media, I mean, since splitting up I've gone on complete Facebook and twitter shut down as I can't face any sympathy from people, as nice as my friends really are there are those who will be just interested in the gossip. We've not spoken at all and not getting on but now she has un-friended me on FB, which is fine no problems there. But I am still friends on Facebook with her Dad, brothers, sister and cousins etc, they are lovely people but am worried about what they would think if I eventually find someone else and start to see 'couple photos' of me and someone else, I've held off from mentioning anything about it as don't want to upset them and even can't bring myself to change my relationship status. I still kind of see them as family and I don't want to seem too 'in your face' about it. Do I de-friend them as well? Its kind of harsh as they are really nice but its likely I will never see them again, maybe I'm being to sensitive about it I dunno.
I'd like to hear stories of anyone else with a similar situation so I can make sure I'm doing my life proper.
