Why Do You Still Have Your Ex’s Phone Number?
It can be extremely difficult to remove your ex’s phone number from your phone. There’s just something about it that feels so final. It’s almost as if when you hit delete, you’re basically admitting that it’s all over. Needless to say, taking that first step can be much more difficult than you might expect. But why should you delete your ex’s phone number after a breakup? Why do people do it if it’s so difficult?
While deleting an ex’s contact information can be difficult, I’ve always believed that when a relationship is truly over and you’ve gotten all of your belongings back, it’s time to clean house — contact list-wise. There’s something cathartic about deleting an ex’s phone number. In some cases, it’s the only real closure you’ll ever get, so embrace it!
To be honest, I can be a bit judgmental when it comes to breakups, so I sought advice from the experts. They seem to agree because saying goodbye to their phone number is an important step in saying goodbye to your ex and moving on with your life after a breakup — in part because it’s a symbolic gesture of closing the door to the past, but also because it makes it that much more difficult to drunk dial them later in a moment of weakness. We’ve all been there, so don’t pass judgment!
What would be your advice dealing with this tense situation?
