Anti-Love: The First Annual Break Up With Your Ex Day?

The annual day to celebrate love is coming up — Valentine’s Day– but YourTango isn’t celebrating intimacy and affection. Instead, they are announcing the first annual Break Up With Your Ex Day.

The site that claims to take a smart approach to love recently surveyed over 1,000 people and found that 71 percent of respondents said they think about their ex too much and 48 percent said they look at their ex’s Facebook or other social networking profile too often.

We’ve all been there and done that, and by making February 13 the official day to break up with their ex, YourTango has found ways to help stop the madness!

A break-up is tough enough without adding the obsessive social networking stalking to the mix. To participate in this day, just unfollow your ex’s Twitter and other social networking sites, block him/her on IM and delete their phone number and e-mail. From now until February 13, unfriend your former boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses and partners. You can do it! If this idea works, what an interesting Valentine’s Day this will be.

Do you think this annual “holiday” will go viral?
