“The likeliest possibility is that they are reflecting about the relationship and are missing you,” psychologist Samantha Rodman said. If the relationship ended on bad terms or your ex feels the breakup was their fault, they may be texting you out of guilt and a desire to make things right, Rodman added.
Even though your ex broke up with you, the reaching out is an indication theres a part of them that misses you – even if they dont say that in their message or call. What it doesnt necessarily mean, is that they want to get back together.
What to do if your ex texts you after a breakup?
If someone keeps messaging you and youd like them to stop, you can first politely tell them youre not interested in talking to them. You can also choose to ignore this person, but this can make someone more upset, and they end up texting you more.
What does it mean if your ex texts you?
One of the apparent reasons your ex might be texting you could be that he or she is lonely. Your ex could have no one else to talk to and might be texting to you to fill his or her emotional void. Your ex may not want to come back and may not have romantic feelings for you.
Why do exes text you out of nowhere?
Hes feeling down or lonely. When a guy feels lonely or down, texting you is a great ego boost. When you text back, he sees youre still interested and then hes all set because he only wanted some confirmation that hes still got it. This exchange buoys his sense of masculine attraction, allowing him to move forward.
