Texting Your Ex Back after a Long Duration of No Contact

We have all dealt with breakups at some point of time in our lives. Often after breaking up with our partners, we break contact with them for a long time frame. Over this period some people get that time to think about whether or not they want to be with their ex. A lot of people end up realizing that they do still want to be with their ex, while others end up realizing that they are much better off without him. If you have been out of touch with your ex for a long time period and you have realized during this period that you want him back, you can probably start off with a simple text message.

What To Do And What To Avoid

Sending out a text to someone who you haven’t spoken to for a long time, especially an ex, can prove to be a very difficult situation. You don’t know what to write in the text, you don’t know how to begin. If you’re planning on texting your ex back, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind. First and foremost, you need to be in your complete senses when you’re planning on texting your ex. If you’re going to be drunk or inebriated while texting your ex, you’re only going to end up regretting it in the morning. You need to not only text your ex when you’re sober, but you also need to make sure that you text your ex at a proper hour of the day and not in the middle of the night.

Secondly, when texting your ex, you need to be calm and composed. Your text needs to come across as clear and straightforward and not something that has a double meaning to it. You also don’t need to sound needy and desperate when texting your ex. If you haven’t been in contact for ages and you don’t know what is going on in his life, you definitely want to be absolutely careful. If he is seeing someone else, or maybe has even gotten married to someone else, you don’t want to end up being like the third wheel. Hence, your text needs to be casual and friendly but not overly eager and desperate.

Focus On Rebuilding A Rapport With Your Ex

Once you have texted your ex, you need to keep in mind that you guys haven’t spoken in ages. In the time that you have been apart, there is a major chance that your ex could have changed, you may have changed and so on. Texting your ex doesn’t necessarily mean that things are going to be the same as they once were. If you’re messaging him after a prolonged duration of no contact, you will have to rebuild your entire rapport with him. You will literally have to start out as friends again and then slowly, practically and smartly take it forward from there.  

Be Prepared With All Kinds Of Responses

Considering the fact that you have been completely out of touch with your ex, there are high chances that you don’t know how he is going to respond to your text. While he may be friendly and the same old person, he may have also changed and there is a chance that you may get a response that you never imagined. You need to be prepared with responses to all possible situations. You need to rehearse multiple possible scenarios and responses in your head and be prepared with a proper answer when your ex responds to you.

Be Prepared To Start Flirting Again

If your ex responds warmly to your first text message and manages to hold some kind of textual conversation with you, you need to be prepared for the next step. The next step involves subtle and tasteful flirting. If you’re looking to get back together with your ex, you will have to flirt a little bit with him so that he gets the hint of your intentions. While flirting, be tactful. Don’t end up looking overly desperate, eager or needy. You don’t want to end up throwing the guy of course and making him run for the hills.

Make The Transition

The next thing you need to do is make the transition from texts to phone calls. You can’t keep texting your ex forever without taking the next step. If you’re looking to get back together with him, you will slowly need to convert those day long text exchanges to telephonic conversations. When you decide to call him, make sure that you call him at a decent hour of the day. Check with him what time suits him to have a telephonic conversation. Don’t end up surprising him with a call as he may not yet be ready to talk. Make this transition slowly and smartly.

Eventually Get Around To Making A Plan To Meet

Obviously, if you have been texting your ex and he has been humoring you by texting you back, there are chances that things may work out. You can’t stick to a texting conversation for life. When you see some kind of positive response from your ex over a period of time, you need to take the next step. Ask him to meet you, make a plan to go out for a meal. If he agrees to this then there are chances that things may work out between you guys.

As you can see, texting your ex doesn’t necessarily need to be as hard and as complicated as they make it seem in the movies. It can be a simple and straightforward thing that can bring you and your ex back together before you know it. When texting your ex, make sure that you are smart and straightforward. Don’t beat around the bush and have a proper agenda or goal of texting your ex. Always keep in mind when texting that your textual conversation needs to lead somewhere fruitful.
