5 Texts To Send Your Ex When You Want to Reconnect


Missing an ex is almost inevitable, we've ALL been there...myself included. But, only you know if you should really reach out and reconnect. So if you've been thinking about them and want to talk try out one of these texts...

  1. "Hey [Insert Ex's Name Here], you crossed my mind. How's it going? I was thinking maybe we could meet for coffee and catch up some time." 
    • If you and your ex have had some cool-down time — meaning that you've had some contact since the breakup and you don't get the feeling that they're super upset — suggesting a casual meeting is totally OK.
  2. "Hi [Ex's Name], I've been doing some thinking and I really regret how things between us ended. I understand if you're not up to it, but I would really love to see you." 
    • This text should be specifically reserved for when you know you were in the wrong and really want to get back together. It's important to remember that if your ex has requested that you don't contact them, you should respect their wishes. 
  3. "Hey [Ex], just wanted to say congrats on your new job! I know we haven't talked in a while, but I'm really proud of you. We should grab a beer to celebrate, my treat :)" 
    • If you are really missing being friends with your ex, then this is a great text to send when you find out that they've accomplished something cool! 
  4. "Hey [Ex's Name Here], it's been too long. How are you? Are you back in the city? If so, maybe we can grab lunch!" 
    • If it comes to your attention that they are back in town, there’s nothing wrong with dropping them a casual line to say hi. If you’re hoping to see if there’s still a spark but are too nervous to make your intentions known, offering to get lunch is totally a safe bet.
  5. "Hey [Ex], I just wanted to check in. Let me know if and when you're ready to talk. I just want you to know that I really care about you and hope we can still be friends at some point in the future." 
    • If you and your ex recently broke up but you really want to maintain a platonic friendship, sending a text to “check in” without asking for anything —i.e., pressuring them to meet up, telling them you “need” to talk, etc — is a solid way to let them know.
