As posted on 14 texts to not send your ex on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, which means it’s everyone’s least favorite time of the year: reminiscing on V-Days past.
With memories of former flames making their annual resurgence, it is essential to remember one thing: do. not. text. your. exes.
Don’t text these people. It isn’t good for you, it isn’t good for them and it definitely isn’t good for the new person in your life wondering why you’re texting “Sal from camp.”
We get it, the temptation is real — but really, it’s almost definitely not going to be worth it.
Okay, great. Now that the PSA is out of the way, if you’re like us and you really, really can’t fight the ex-text impulse, at least avoid these 14 confirmed horrible messages.
1. The Desperate “BCC” Text
2. The “Are you mad” Text
3. The “Above This” Text
4. The “Our show” Revival Text
5. The “SOS” Text
6. The “Wrong number” Text
7. The “It’s not even about you” Text
8. The “Things are going great” Text
9. The “What are you even doing” Text
10. The “Sad Quote” Text
11. The “Just trying to make conversation” Text
12. The “I’m clearly not over this” Text
13. The “Look at me with a baby” Text
And, for the love of God, whatever you do,
14. Do. Not. Do. This.
Happy Valentine’s Day, fellow thirsties. Let’s stay safe out there.
