What Does It Mean When Your Ex Still Texts You?
As if your breakup wasn't bad enough, now your ex keeps sending you text messages. What do they mean? And what does your ex REALLY want?
Text-messages... they're a part of everyday life. During the course of your relationship, you probably texted your boyfriend or girlfriend a thousand times. And maybe even a whole lot more.
Yet now that the romance is over, you expected to be left alone. However the breakup went down, you figured that you and your ex would finally go your separate ways. So you're sitting there, minding your own business when suddenly... BAM! Your ex sends you a text message, seemingly from out of nowhere.
So what does it mean when your ex keeps texting you beyond the breakup? Are they just saying hello? Do they want to continue some sort of friendship? Or does the fact that your ex can't stop texting you actually mean something else?
What Your Ex Really Wants When They Send You A Text
Okay, let's skip the obvious and cut straight through the transparent bullshit of "Oh hi! How are you!" This isn't why your ex is texting you, and everyone knows it.
When you get a text from your ex boyfriend or girlfriend, they obviously have an agenda in mind. And usually, it's to get you back in one form or the other.
Now this doesn't necessarily mean your ex wants you back - at least, not just yet anyway. Such a text message could be the precursor to re-opening the lines of communication, which could lead to a form of reconciliation. At the same time, your ex could be contacting you for a quick hookup, or even just to talk about something.
No matter what the case, two things are abundantly clear: One, your ex misses you. Two, your ex has been thinking about you hard enough to dial your number.
Now if you've been trying to get back with your ex, getting a text from them can be good news. There's no such thing as an innocent 'how are you?' text message. It took balls for your exboyfriend or exgirlfriend to reach out like this, and chances are they did it for a very good reason.
The only problem is, a text is too impersonal. It's almost cowardly. Your ex is almost ready to talk to you - whether it be on the phone or face to face - but for right now? They're choosing this much more informal method of communicating.
What Should You Do When Your Ex Texts You?
Depending upon what you want, you should do absolutely nothing. If your goal is to ultimately win back your ex boyfriend or girlfriend, texting them right back is showing too much instant interest. You're tipping your hand too early, and you could come off as needy or desperate... even though they're the one who initially reached out to you, via text-message.
Play the back and forth text-message game, and you're bound to lose. Chances are your ex is the one who broke things off with YOU, and now he or she is electronically stringing you along.
Continue to allow your ex to manipulate and initiate the contact, and you're showing your exboyfriend or exgirlfriend just how much you still need them. But by completely ignoring their text altogether? You're putting them in a position of complete disadvantage. And this is exactly where you want them to be, before making your next move.
