Exes can sometimes be like those annoying flies that can’t seem to just buzz off. Even if you’ve broken up, they just can’t stop sending you texts, getting you to talk to them. A break up means you both no longer have any ties to each other, and if you choose to continue talking or be friends, then that’s fine. What’s not fine is that even after specifying that you’ve got nothing to do with each other, your ex still blows up your phone with random texts. You must be honest and upfront about your opinions and if they can’t respect your preferences, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be sending them a goodbye text for last. If it’s closure they need, then these texts are the best way to end all conversations with your ex.
02/8“Hey, I need time to process everything and it’s best that we don’t talk right now. I’ll reach out to you when and if I feel ready to do so.”
A breakup can be really painful and the aftermath is usually a pool of tears. Anything related to the former relationship can remind you of painful memories and to top it off, an ex sending messages after the break up can hurt a lot more. If you haven’t entirely processed it and you’re still feeling the blues, then it’s best to steer clear of your ex’s messages and anything related to that.
03/8“It’s very unusual that you’ve been reaching out to me a lot more. It’s honestly confusing since we’ve broken up. I appreciate it but, no thanks.”
Questioning their motive with this brilliant text is a great way to know what they are thinking. If your ex is still texting you regarding your old life together and other situations, then letting them know that you no longer want it is perfectly fine.
04/8“Thank you for checking up on me, it’s great but it’s only going to hurt us more to talk. It’s best if we don’t do that.”
If your ex has always been the caring one, it’s understandable that they would want to check up on you. It’s basic instincts. But what it also necessary that you both maintain distance so that the breakup can wear off smoothly without hurting you both. If you even care about your ex, it’s best to stop talking.
05/8“Hey, I’ve started seeing someone. So, I don’t think we should keep talking. I sincerely hope you find love too, till then all the best.”
If you’ve started seeing someone, it’s morally incorrect to continue talking to your ex in worst cases. If both of you had parted ways, then you should give your ex a heads-up about it so that you can avoid any such situations in the future. Wish them the best for finding love and happiness down the road too.
06/8“I know you’re sorry and admitting that you messed up. That’s alright but I can’t keep talking to you. I want to move forward and not look back. So, please don’t text me anymore.”
If your ex was the one to ruin the relationship and if they’re admitting the same and want to make it right again, it’s great. But if you’ve made up your mind that if anything, it’ll only hurt you more, then send this reply to them. They will understand for sure.
07/8“Aren’t you able to understand that it’s over for us? I don’t want anything to do with you, please understand and stop texting me.”
If your ex is stubborn and keeps texting you, then there’s nothing wrong in being a little forceful trying to make them understand why you don’t want to get back together. Set a boundary and leave no room for misinterpretation with strict and concise words.
08/8“You’re now getting blocked. Goodbye.”
This is the last resort if your ex still tries to contact you despite your numerous attempts at making them understand that it’s over. If your relationship had ended badly, then this is a great option too. You won’t be stuck with the thought of them texting you back ever again.
These ‘make-your-ex-understand’ texts are a perfect and viable solution to keep your ex from popping you up on your chats. However, if you want to get a bit creative, consider this:
If your ex has texted you, try getting them back with, the number you’re trying to reach isn’t available anymore and has moved on from unsatisfactory and inadequate performance.
That will shut them out for sure!
