Look, the break up happened. There’s no sense in trying to apologize now, whether you were the dumper or the dumpee. Words like this are nothing but a sign of weakness. Forgive, forget and move on.
Let’s Hang Out
We all think we can be friends with our exes, until we realize we can’t. Very rarely will you be able to hang out with an old flame without things getting complicated or painful. And if you’re asking to hang out soon after the split, odds are you have ulterior motives that should not be seen through.
The Wink ;-)
A simple emoticon like this could send the message that you’re flirting, which will throw you into a game you won’t win. Texts are now for words only, so keep both eyes open!
I Need Advice
It’s almost impossible to be objective with an ex. Don’t let yours advise you in your future relationships or any other area of your life; he/she no longer has your best interests in mind after a break up. And let’s be honest, you’re only asking for advice as an excuse to contact him/her or to let your old flame know that you have a new horse in the stables.
I Love You
Whether it’s because you think it’s what they want to hear or because you really feel it, saying “I love you” to an ex does nothing but open up a gaping wound to infection. Don’t drag this out. Just let bygones be bygones.
What Are You Wearing?
Everybody knows this little phrase is meant to get the sexting going. Avoid it at all costs. You don’t want to sext your ex because, even if he/she plays along, it’s just a temporary distraction from your unhappiness. You two are no longer together, and this will result in nothing but embarrassment.
Once you send a dirty picture, you can never get it back. You never know what a scorned lover will do with photos of your lady or man bits, so it’s best to keep that to yourself. Even if your ex doesn’t have malicious intentions, sending unsolicited dirty pictures his/her way will be mortifying should he/she not be interested in them.
