But worst of all, it can make me feel like every man I’ve loved and who’s ever loved me, or was just momentarily a huge part of my life, has moved on. And here I am still stalking their Facebook page (not to mention the other social networks available and ripe with information I really shouldn’t know).

Even if it is harmless to the dudes, this prying couldn’t be more harmful to us. Luckily, there’s hope for me and the many others like me who go against their better judgment and higher degrees and find themselves spying on the men of the past.

This ray of light comes from blockyourex.com, a website where you can download software that keeps you from using the Internet with bad intentions. Available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, this free download allows you to block an ex’s Facebook, Twitter, and blog from opening on your computer. Even better, if you type in his/her name in a search engine, it won’t show you any results that have to do with your past flame. You can add as many exes as you like. So far, over 12,000 have utilized the service (wonder if anyone has blocked me? Hmm…).

So, take that Zuckerberg! There is a way to end Facebook stalking. Well, at least until the merlot takes over and we uninstall the software for good.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of WordPress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
