If Hamlet had been written and published in 2019, Shakespeare's soliloquy surely would have read, "To flex on one's ex or not to flex on one's ex? That is the question." It's a tale as old as time: You dated someone for a while and it didn't work out, but you'd not-so-secretly love the chance to show them once more how amazing you are. But I have one question for you: Should you flex on your ex?
After a hard breakup, when you're finally ready to go on a fun trip with friends or hit the town for a big night out, it's natural to want to post about it. Though prioritizing self-care and pumping yourself up after a breakup can be a good thing, doing something just to spite your ex may not work in your favor. No matter how painful your split was or how badly you want to (evil laugh) win the breakup,trying to slam-dunk on your ex can leave you feeling a little slammed down.
Elite Daily asked five people about flexing on their exes and all the ways in which it can go terribly awry. What they said will have you cringing in your seat.
