If you've been out with someone enough times that you feel it's necessary to tell her you don't want to see her any more--whether that means you two have gone out on five dates, or three--have the decency to call or send an email, at the very least. Especially if you think you're going to hurt her feelings.
There's no need to tell the world - including potential boyfriends - about your daily routine. De-friend and/or block exes, especially if they ended the relationship.
