I wrote a piece today about how weird life can be—especially on Instagram.

As per E!, Crouse briefly recounts the story of her romance with Polansky, 'I dated this normal, mystery man for seven years.'

'Our relationship lasted all of college, and then a few years more.'

'(A popular song from back then described being "caught in a bad romance.")'

The editor reveals she hasn't had any contact with Polansky since their split.

'I don't follow my ex on social media. We were 'friends' on Facebook.'

'Then we were 'in a relationship' on Facebook. After we broke up, I noticed I was 'blocked' on Facebook.'

She adds, 'And then we moved on.'

Finding out

Crouse points out how social media has made it impossible to ignore past relationships.

She insists, 'I hadn't googled him in forever (I promise).'

'But this month I knew everything about his new relationship status, within hours of when it was disclosed.'

Crouse says, 'Instead of thinking, 'Why not me?' when I see them together, I think 'That was me.''

She points out, 'It pulls the illusion of celebrity down.'

Motivation

The editor admits she began comparing herself to Lady Gaga - something that was actually quite, 'motivational.'

'Lady Gaga is amazing. Comparing yourself with her is incredibly motivational, and I recommend you try it, regardless of how you relate to who’s dating her.'

Crouse says she had planned to re-wear an old dress to an upcoming party.

But when she realised Gaga would never do something like that, she treated herself to a new dress.

'I went to a nice store I'd never been inside before and I tried something on.'

Crouse continues, 'The clerk asked me what the occasion was.'

'I found out from Facebook that my ex-boyfriend was dating Lady Gaga, I told her, and she looked me up and down.'

The editor admits, 'The dress was too expensive, but I bought it anyway.'

'Why should I accept less than Lady Gaga?' she asks.
