Relationships and love can be complicated, but the break-up doesn’t have to be. Sometimes, we’re very lucky that we live in a world filled with social media that provides us with faster ways to connect with more people.

A lot of relationship and dating advice will tell you that it’s a terrible idea to break up with or find a new partner via social media, however, there are some positives. Cupid has some ideas.

1. Remove the awkwardness: If you do decide to break up with your significant other, you have the option of making things a little less awkward by doing it through social media. If you’re too nervous to face them in person, or haven’t been dating for too long, you have the option of sending them a private Facebook message and then moving on with your life.
