6 Classic Texts Everyone Receives From Their Ex

6 Classic Texts Everyone Receives From Their Ex

Ex: I still love you, Me: I don't blame you

If you've been through a breakup, you can be certain of one thing: post breakup texts. They're received unexpectedly, reaching you at any time and any place. Its basis all relies on what occurred during those last weeks before the split. However, if you're on the “lucky" end of the spectrum and have received one of these texts below be sure to know the true underlying message your ex is really trying to convey.

1. "I miss you"

WELL DUH, of course you miss me. You'll usually wake up to this particular text sent during the late hours of the night between 1 AM and 4 AM. The majority of the time your ex is in a stage of rejection and shoots this particular text with the sole intention of being reassured you still care for their lonely self.

2. "Come over let's talk"

Understand that when an ex sends this message they DO NOT want to “talk". Their version of talking consists of “netflix & chillin" or coincidently watching the movie No Strings Attached. Veer away from responding to this message.

3. "Just saw this and thought of you"

What a subtle excuse to start a conversation with your ex. Becky, chances are he did not find that old album you made for him back in high school. Instead he just simply used this phrase to catch your attention.

4. "Wher arrred you"

If you ever come across this message with these misspellings be aware there is a 99.9% chance your ex is probably tanked with loads of “water".

5. "Can't believe you're with so and so"

Before you respond to this message please realize your ex is still caught up in your business, therefore, giving you the upper hand. Usually, this text follows up with a “you have such bad taste and low standards" just hit them with a response like “that's why I liked you". You will definitely have the last word in this one while leaving them speechless.

6. "One last time"

This one is self-explanatory. Do you.

17 Reasons It's Never OK To Pursue Your Best Friend's Ex

Like, seriously, come on. This should be common sense, right?

Imagine finding out that your “best friend” has been dating your ex for a month and never had the courage to tell you. Yeah, true story.

I hate that I even have to write this article. Like, seriously, come on. This should be common sense, right? Simple logic.

For those simpleminded people who can't wrap their head around the concept of loyalty, here are 17 reasons you should never date your best friend's ex.

1. OK, first of all, good luck bringing that conversation up

I'd love to be a fly on the wall during that conversation.

2. Yes, she WILL care even if she says she doesn’t

Your best friend is going to want to support you because she loves you and wants you to be happy, but she's going to be torn between her love for you and the hurt of the betrayal. There are going to be old emotions involved and that's a lot to ask of someone. If you really care about her and don't want to hurt her, you won't even consider putting her in this position.

3. You'll have to choose between the two

You're going to have to make the decision between valuing your friendship or the possibility of falling in love. It's a tough decision and it's entirely yours to make, but if you choose a boy over your best friend, you better seriously reevaluate your friendship.

4. You might lose them both

You better believe that this is the man of your dreams because if you choose a fling over your best friend, she won't be there as your shoulder to cry on. You need to ask yourself, is this boy really worth risking years of friendship?

5. If you manage to remain friends, your friendship will never be the same

You're definitely going to lose her trust. You already dated one of her exes, who says you won't do it again? Please, for the love of God, don't do it again, once is bad enough.

6. You'll lose your other friends

Lord knows you're going to have some explaining to do to the rest of your friends. They were there to console her after the original breakup happened, but they might not be there for you. This is a major break in girl code and there may be a taking of sides. Be prepared to lose more than just the one friend.

7. Say goodbye to group hangouts

Not to mention it's going to be extremely awkward to bring your new boy to a party or to hang out with your friends when they know the history of the situation. It's like an unwanted reunion.

8. How would you feel if the roles were reversed?

Let's just bring this back to the Golden Rule we all learned way back in preschool: don't do to others what you wouldn't want to be done to you. Seems pretty basic right? How would you feel if your best friend went off and dated one of your ex-boyfriends? That's a pretty low blow.

9. It's NOT normal!!!

Seriously though, I don't care how many movies or TV shows show this happening, it is not normal for friends to play tradsies with each other's ex-boyfriends. That is all kinds of weird.

10. The jealousy will be unreal

If you thought dating a guy and being jealous of his ex that you didn't know was bad, you've got a big storm coming. If you date your BFF's ex-BF, you're going to know his ex, and you're sure as hell going to know how great she is because she's your best friend. Trust me, the fact that they dated is going to haunt you and you will start comparing your relationship to theirs. That's not a good place to be.

11. You'll compare yourself to her

Don't lie, we've all done it. More likely than not, you're going to compare your relationships to one another, and your boyfriend will do the same. Except now it's worse because you're being compared to your best friend. This for sure will put some strain on your relationship, you know if dating her ex hasn't already done enough.

12. It'll hurt you just as much as it hurts her

You're both losing your best friend and you're constantly going to be wondering if it was worth it.

13. You know their past

Best friends tell each other everything. She told you all about him, you were basically a part of their relationship. You know the good and the bad, and that's going to be weird.

14. You know the problems they had

You know everything that went wrong in their relationship. You know the fights they had and you know the reasons for why they broke up. What's to say these say problems won't ruin your relationship?

15. There could be hidden feelings

This definitely isn't always the case, but you never know if there are old emotions still lingering on either side. Do you really want to risk hurting your friend by dating someone they aren't over, or do you really want to date someone who isn't completely sure they want to be with you?

16. There are so many other guys out there

Honestly, there are 7.6 billion other people to pick from, did you have to choose him?

17. You get her sloppy seconds

Just saying.

If after all of this, you're still ready to date your best friend's ex, you need to think about if that friendship ever meant anything to you at all.

I'm Not A Relationship Person, Love Is Scary

I want one but I’m starting to realize that finding a guy isn’t the problem, I am. I’m scared to give myself to someone, to have to rely on somebody other than myself.

I like to think that I’m not the only girl out there with this issue, so I’m here to say, you’re not alone. I’m the kind of girl that has always wanted a relationship, but can never seem to have one. The reason isn’t because I can’t find the right guy, or any guy for that matter. It’s because I don’t know how to be in a relationship to begin with. I’ve only ever been in two and they weren’t true relationships. It was just a guy and a girl trying to figure out how they belonged in this crazy world. We obviously didn’t belong together, not for lack of effort.

Now, I’ve been single for about a year and there are moments when I hate it, and there are moments when I love it. I hate it when I’m at date nights with my friends and they have their boyfriends with them, but boy do I love it when they are up late crying because of some fight they had. I love not answering to anyone but myself, and I adore being able to just hop on a plane and fly as far away whenever I feel like it.

I want a relationship.

I want one but I’m starting to realize that finding a guy isn’t the problem, I am. I’m scared to give myself to someone, to have to rely on somebody other than myself. I’m so used to being alone, independent and doing whatever it is I please. I’m coming to a point in my life where all my friends are in relationships, engaged, or are married.

That scares me to no end.

I meet guys who I could see myself being with, and then I sabotage any chance of that ever happening. The reasoning behind that is something that I’ll leave to the psychologists and not my pen and paper. Not being ready to commit to a relationship is becoming extremely hard in my life when I come to a point when everyone is ready to commit. I always say that it will come when it comes, just like everything happens for a reason. The time is coming when I’ve met guys that I can see myself being but I can’t get over this feeling where I lose myself. I’ve seen girls there who self to someone and then been spit back out.

I don’t go anywhere without a backup plan, but it's starting to cause more problems then help. Just know that if you feel this way, you aren’t alone. There are so many girls out there that just tell people “I’m not a relationship person” it’s a short way of saying “I’m scared, and am not ready to take a leap.” I’m not ready to take the leap and props to those who are because you have more courage than I could ever muster up.
