Should I Text My Ex on His Birthday?

should i text my ex on his birthday

So you and your boyfriend are broken up and now it's his birthday!  You want to know should I text my ex happy birthday?  Here are just a few thoughts before you let your fingers do the talking.

You most likely see this as an excuse to make contact.  If you see it as an excuse, he will too. Ask yourself what is the real motive behind you wanting to text your ex?  Be honest with yourself.  Is it to remind him you still think of him, that you still care?  Do you hope he will suddenly remember you are alive and want to get back together.

When a man breaks up with you, he has decided he no longer wants you in his life, at least in that moment.  To still cling to him, even with a simply happy birthday text is not something you do with people who have chosen to longer be a part of your life.

If you think it's rude not to text your ex on his birthday, think again a bit harder.  He isn't a part of your life anymore.  You aren't included in his birthday plans.  His life is going on.  By texting your ex, you are showing him that perhaps yours is not.

You will make him wonder far more by not texting him on his birthday than if you do.  If you want him back, a little wondering works wonders.  It's when they feel you slipping out of their grasp for good that they may begin to feel regret.  If you text your ex on his birthday, you are still in his grasp.

Does he text you on your birthday?  Will he?  Giving more than you are getting is not the way to a man's heart nor will it suddenly make him long for you.  If anything, he may even see you as sad.  Sad is not attractive.

If you are thinking of texting an ex happy birthday, think again.  Save your text messages for a man who is present in your life and giving back to you what you are giving him.  A happy birthday text to your ex will not bring him back.
