Men usually don't post anything after a breakup. Heartbroken women, on the other hand, are a lot of fun to observe because they readily embrace singlehood roughly 99.99 percent of the time. They announce it all over social media, although very subtly, by dropping some hints.
What hints, you ask? We've found 10 surefire ways that tell if you just got dumped through your online posts.
1. You're going solo in your profile photo.
You've seen the pattern: Your profile pic had always been of you and some dude you (once) called "babe." When you suddenly change it into your solo shot, chances are, people will think you are now single. When people need confirmation, they can just go through your old photos. If there isn't a single trace of your (ex) boyfriend's face, then bingo!
2. You uploaded a photo with daddy.
Or baby brother, or guy best friend or male dog and captioned it: "The only guy I need in my life. <3 <3 <3"
3. You post photos with your girlfriends.
Since you spend most of your free time with the amigas you may have neglected for years, you take a lots of photos together, upload them over Facebook and caption it, "I don't know where I'd be without them.#LoveMyGirls #BFFsForever"
4. You upload conspicuous photos.
…with no caption whatsoever, for the sake of confusing the hell out of your ex and the rest of the world.
5. You flood other people's newsfeed with sexy photos.
Forget about the girl who'd only post sweet-looking, pabebe photos. That woman is no more. The sexy, sultry, lady who's always lounging around on the beach—this is the new you. And oh, captions like "You'll regret it." Dead giveaway, girl!
6. Your wall is full of bitterness.
7. You're suddenly a fan of #hugot quotes.
We're talking the likes of: "The sweetest part of being a couple is sharing your life with someone else. But my life, evidently, had not been good enough to share." Or: "I'm not single. I'm not taken. I'm simply on reserve for the one who deserves my heart." Boom!
8. ...Or Taylor Swift lyrics
|Because T-Swizzle is the patron saint of all forlorn women.
9. You have given yourself a makeover.
Girls usually cut or dye their hair after going through a breakup. Some also get a new piercing or a tattoo.
10. You're suddenly independent.
You post photos of yourself doing couple activities such as going to the movies or eating dinner—alone. The caption would go somewhere along the lines of "how great it is to be doing this alone" and hashtags like #OneIsBetterThanTwo and #SingleAndHappy. Super Like!
