How to make your ex jealous on social media?

You can make your ex jealous on social media through the ways discussed below,

Upload a great picture on your Facebook

We all know that a picture says a thousand words. The best way to make your ex jealous is to simply post a great picture of yourself on Facebook. You can also take the help of your friends to make sure that the picture turns out better than ever.

Try a great Instagram caption

Another thing that you can do to get the attention of your ex is to simply put up an Instagram caption or quote. You can use the caption to communicate that you are out there living your best life.

You can also use an Instagram caption to communicate with the rest of your friends that you have truly found your strength and are ready to move on. You can even put up captions in the form of song lyrics, book quotes and even quotes from celebs that have been through breakups.

Put up a new status on Whatsapp

Instagram and Facebook are definitely not the only forms of social media. You can even put up a status on Whatsapp to get the attention of your ex and make them jealous. The status can be a quote or even a picture of you.

When you are putting up a status on Whatsapp, make sure that you are putting up something really eye-catching to get the attention of everyone scrolling through their statuses. You can even put up a status as a flirty response to someone else which can definitely get your ex jealous.

Put up an achievement on LinkedIn

Social media does not stop with fun images and statuses, but even goes up to professional networking platforms like LinkedIn. If your ex follows you on LinkedIn, you can put up a new achievement or even mention that you have got a new gig.

Even if your ex does not follow you on LinkedIn, news like you getting your dream job is sure to get the attention of your mutual friends who are definitely going to mention it to them. You can also put up a picture of you having fun with your new work friends.

Avoid communicating with your ex

While you are putting up pictures and statuses on your social media platforms, the most important thing to remember is to completely avoid communicating with your ex. This is called the no-contact rule and psychology says that this can bring enormous benefits to you.

One great thing about the no-contact rule is that it can make your ex very curious about you since you seem to be living well on your own. Another thing is that they are definitely going to be jealous since you seem to be talking well with everyone else except for them.

Another great benefit of the no-contact rule is that it can even help you reset your mind and get more in touch with your thoughts and feelings. This is the perfect time for you to grow and strengthen yourself.

Put up pictures of you and your group

If you have a large group of friends, you can even post pictures of you having fun with them on social media. To get your ex especially mad, you can even put up pictures of you having fun with your mutual friends.

Show off your new skills

A breakup from a relationship is a great time to look into your inventory and revamp your skill sets. If you have picked up a new hobby or a skill after your breakup, don’t forget to put up a picture of you. Your ex is going to be jealous knowing that you are improving yourself.

Post a picture with someone attractive

There is nothing like putting up a picture with someone very attractive to get the attention of your ex. This is especially true if the person is someone your ex definitely hates or can’t stand the sight of.

Take a fun trip

You can even take a trip after your breakup. Taking a trip cannot only distract from negative thoughts in a good way but can even bring up lots of opportunities to make your ex jealous. If you have met someone on your trip, don’t forget to put up their pictures as well for more effect.

Like your ex’s friends’ pics

One surefire way to make your ex jealous and raging is to simply continue communicating with their friends while avoiding them. The best way to get their attention is to simply like their friends’ pics and maybe even post a flirty comment.

Try a new hairdo

‘New hair, don’t care!’ may be one of the most commonly used slogans on Instagram but is sure to get heads turning your way, including that of your ex’s. If you have got a new haircut or a new hairdo, take a nice picture and put it up on your social media with a great caption.

Do something that you were banned from before

Many times in relationships, partners may restrict the other person from doing a particular activity. A great way to rub the breakup in your partners’ faces is by simply going ahead and doing an activity that they are sure not to like.

Change your relationship status on Facebook

You can easily make your ex raging-jealous by simply changing your relationship status. You can go from ‘single’ to ‘in a relationship’ or even ‘it’s complicated’ to get the attention of your ex. Whatever it may be, a change in relationship status will leave them curious and jealous.

Check-in to favorite haunts

If you and your ex share a lot of favorite haunts, don’t stay away from these after your breakup. These places can be great opportunities to make your ex jealous. While you are doing so, make sure that you are ‘checking-in’ on your social media.

Post a meme about exes

You can also go ahead and post a funny meme about exes or relationships in general. This is not only going to get the attention of your ex, but even that of your mutual friends who know your history. This is surely going to bring a chuckle or two.

Ask for comments on your pic

If you are putting up a pic of yourself on your social media, don’t stop with the likes. Go ahead and ask for comments or even opinions. You can even go ahead and respond to certain comments from attractive people to leave your ex really jealous.

Retweet tweets from someone they hate

If you are active on Twitter, retweeting a tweet from someone your ex hates can also do the trick if you want them to get jealous. This does not necessarily have to be from someone you know personally, but even a celeb whom your ex hates.

Clean out your albums

Another important thing to do is to simply delete all the pictures and posts involving your ex. This can not only show them that you have moved on, but even give you a stronger mindset since you are cleansing the past and are ready for a bright future.
