do you start your online life over after a breakup for privacy?

yah, some things you can just block them from. but others like public blogs and EF there is no way to maintain privacy. so do you start over on things that you can't change privacy settings on?

I just do my best not to date people who would make my life--online or not--uncomfortable should we break up.

Absolutely not. I wouldn't rearrange my meatspace life after a breakup, I'm certainly not going to delete accounts I've invested time in online after one. If there were any harrassment, I'd report it (first to the site it occurred on, then to the cops if it continued).

I wouldnt change my life, if it got really creepy I'd file a police report.

That's pretty ridiculous, in my opinion.

Unless you're being stalked - just move on.

I never do anything I'd be ashamed of, that includes stuff that goes on-line.

If there was harassment or something posted without consent, that's another issue - and I would do what I needed to in order for it to be taken care of.

I actually made a reddit post about my ex the day after we broke up and he saw it and was angry about it. I didn't care one bit, he gave up the right to care what I do when he lied about being in love with me.

No, unless there is some unusual circumstance involved I don;t see a reason to do that.

No point. My online identity was around long before I met him, while married to him, and after I divorced him. It's more solid than our marriage was.

Although it brings up an interesting point, should I ever marry again, if I'd have a wedding website or the like and what name to use since I wouldn't care for my ex-husband to hear about me tying the knot again. But then why should I try to hide that part my life? If he's going to look me up, he'll find out my marital status, anyway.

I made accounts with different names at new places, but I never went back and changed any of my old accounts.
