Even if you had a really bad breakup with your boyfriend, there may come a time where you will miss him, even if it’s just for a moment. The feeling of genuinely reconnecting with him will give you the urge to talk to him. But how to talk and what to talk to him gets trickier. This is when texting will help you reconnect with him again.
But before you can start texting him, there are a few things that you need to remember before reconnecting with him.
What To Do Before You Text Your Ex Boyfriend When You Miss Him
Below are few things that you need to know before you text him:
Be Clear About What You Want
It can be very painful breaking up with your loved one. You must have already move on and trying to move on from the breakup. And now you are missing him and want to talk to him. Before you even talk to him, you need to know if you really want him back in your life. You need to take a logical decision with a clear mind if making him a part of your life again is what you want. Do you just want him back because you don’t want to be lonely? Do you want him just because you don’t have anyone else better to talk to? Is it possible for you to get back together? You are the best person to answer these questions.
Be Better Than Your Past Self
If you have found the answer to the above questions and still decided to reconnect with your ex boyfriend, then you need to be a person better than your past. You know the mistakes that you have done and you know the issues that you have gone through. Learn from your mistakes and try not to repeat them again.
Don’t Blame Him
What’s happened has happened. There is no point in blaming each other. If you are trying to reconnect with him, then avoid blaming him or raise any questions. If it was your fault, then be brave enough to apologize. If it’s his fault, then instead of blaming him find a way to show him how much you had faith in him.
Before trying to talk to him, plan how you want to approach him. If your ex is not having the same feelings as you, he might not reciprocate on your first try and this is natural. Understand that it is hard for him too. If you really want to reconnect with him, then keep trying. Remember not to text him repeatedly and annoy him. If he is not ready, then try after a few days again.
What To Text Your Ex Boyfriend When You Miss Him
Once you have learned what to do before texting your ex boyfriend, let’s talk about what to text your ex boyfriend when you miss him. Below are some text ideas to send to your ex when you are missing him.
Hi [name], you just crossed my mind. It’s been a long time. How are you? Would you like to meet up for a coffee?
This works best if both of you have cooled down and have reached a stage where meeting casually is okay for both of you. But don’t fix a date or place as it might make you feel desperate. Instead just tell that you would like to meet up “some time” and let him decide. This way you won’t come across as pushy.
Hi [name], I regret the way things ended between us. I understand if you are not ready, but I would love to see you again.
If the break up was your fault and you want to get back to him, then this text is for you. But remember that if you ex boyfriend has specifically told you not to contact him again, then it is better to respect his wishes and not text him.
And if he hasn’t said anything about not to contact him, then do proceed with caution before you send him that text. It is a good idea to analyze your ex boyfriend’s feelings before texting him. You should think if you deserve to get back into life his life for what you have done.
Hi [name], congrats on getting your dream job. Even though we haven’t talked for a while, I want to tell you that I’m really proud of you. Why don’t we celebrate? Drinks on me 😉
If you are just trying to be friends with your ex, then this text line will work for you. Congratulating your ex for something that they have accomplished shows that you still care about him and don’t have any hard feelings. It will also clear any doubts that your ex might have about you.
Sometimes this text may not make it clear about your intentions. In such cases, it is better to be direct and tell him about your intentions when you meet him.
Hey [name], I heard you are back in the city. How are you? Can we plan for a lunch some time?
Sometimes you start thinking about your ex even if it’s been a long time. If you ex has been working in another city and you have come to know that he has come back in town, then it is not a bad idea to send a casual hi.
If you want to find out if your ex is still interested in you but don’t want to let your intentions known, then it is a safe bet to invite him for a lunch. If you find out that the spark between you still alive, then you can plan for a drink afterwards.
Hi [name], I just checked in to let you know that I still care about you and I hope we can be good friends. Whenever you are ready to talk just let me know.
If you have broken up recently but still want to maintain a good relationship with him as a friend then use this text. By sending a text that doesn’t really require him to respond, you are letting him decide if he still wants to talk to you or not. This is a good idea to find out your ex’s feelings.
It can be stressful reaching out to your ex after a breakup. But remember that if he doesn’t want to talk to you or don’t want to be in contact with you, then respect his wishes and don’t force him. It might have a very bad impact. I hope you have taken the right decision based on the above mentioned factors before texting him.
