How To Respond To A Text From Your Ex

Love can often lead you down a path where you did not intend to go because you are emotionally high from the honeymoon phase. Having outsiders who unconditionally love you, like friends and family, provide their insightful perspectives can often be helpful when one is blinded by romantic love. Trust that your family and friends have your back.


5. Rule Out If He Is Just Stringing You Along Or Does He Really Love You

What do you think is the purpose of his text message? Do you feel he truly loves you and wants to work things out because the break-up was over something minor? Was your relationship stable prior to this break? Or is he just losing control because you are on vacation with your girlfriends and he is feeling territorial? 

You know him best. 

Chances are if it was a minor disagreement that led to the break-up and you have a healthy connection, then he may genuinely want to work through the differences within the relationship. On the contrary, if the relationship was unhealthy prior to the break-up and full of negativity, then he is more than likely just exerting control.  

So, how do you respond to his text? It is best to determine the overall health of the relationship prior to the break-up and the reason for your split. If it was not detrimental to your well-being or the trust of the relationship, then you may want to be open to working things out. However, if the relationship is costing you your emotional health, tears, and heartache day after day, then you are better off without your ex-boyfriend. Only you know what is best for you.

Editor's Pick

Thank you for always taking and never giving. For always asking for my love and understanding and yet never being emotionally available for me.
