Breaking up with someone is hard enough. But many times---Ladies, you have to break up with his family too.

This can be really hard because your (now ex) boyfriend’s family often becomes a second family to you and cutting them loose is hard. But you have to if you’re ever going to move on.

Here are a few ways to cut the ex’s family off:

Disappear for a while – After the break up, break off communication with the family for at least a few weeks. This will help you figure out what you really want.

Unfollow – Cut off all the social media contact with them. That includes Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and everything else.
 

Figure out where you stand – If you stay in contact with them, figure out how much you want to know about your ex and his possible new girlfriends. (Yahoo)
