We’ve all been there. You date someone, you break up, a couple months later he texts you. Or in my case it’s been a few years and he still texts you every couple months. Dude, get over
This sort of goes along with my FREE theme for this year, freeing myself from my past. It’s a hard pill to swallow and hard to say Stop but it can be done.
Every time this certain ex texts there are always several responses that pop into my head….anything from “Heeeeey” to “Leave me alone” to “Eff you”. But I think my personal fave is…
Yes, I did just nerd out and use a Harry potter gif.
I’m going to admit right now that I am a softie. I usually do wind up talking to him and then it just puts me in a bad place. I start thinking that we will get back together and live happily ever after but deep down I know that that will NEVER happen.
It’s like he has a radar on my head and knows when I am happy and have stopped thinking about him and then BOOM! He texts. It’s always something super sweet too like “I have been thinking about you and miss you soooo much!” Or just a simple “I love you”. And I fall for it every. single. time. But not anymore. Remember, this year I am freeing myself of everything that isn’t good for me and friends, he is toxic.
I love the IOS7 update on my phone for several reasons but one is that fabulous little block contact feature. I now have him blocked and hopefully he won’t figure it out and just think I am ignoring him. Hopefully I won’t unblock him.
What do you do when an ex texts?

I love this. I love this because I can 100% relate. I love this because I know you are worth more than his lameo self and I’m glad that you are freeing yourself of it. I love this because I need to do it too. 2014 WILL be the year of FREE. You got this girl. I know you do.
I had a situation sort of like this.. I dated a guy for a year, and he just couldn’t let it go when we broke up. I don’t know why, because it was a terrible relationship for both of us, but I suppose that’s neither here nor there. But anyway, he was constantly emailing me, texting, calling, etc. Every time I’d block his email, he’d send me a message from a different account. I had to be hyper vigilant about continuing to block his number with my provider (that was before I could just do it on my phone) because if the 90 block ever lapsed, he’d be blowing me up again. I ignored him completely every time, save for one time when I emailed “Leave me alone”, and one time when he Skyped me and my dad answered and told him to leave me alone too. My dad and my boyfriend have also both had to send him emails or make phone calls to him to make him stop. He never did until we threatened to file a harassment restraining order if he contacted me again. That was six months ago and I haven’t heard anything since, thank God. You can get through this, too!! Seriously, if he ever does get through the blocking thing and texts you, you can feel free to just email me as a response, instead, if that would help. You’re halfway there just by deciding to to be free of it, so just keep on keeping on. :)
I am so proud of you for blocking that number! I know you can do way better than him (if it is who I think it is), but even if it isn’t ex’s are ex’s for a reason! But I know how hard it is to ignore them. To me blocking them is the best way because then it just eliminates more text and makes it harder to text them back because you have to go in there and unblock them. You can do it though, I have full faith in you!!
That is the worsttttt! I found that blocking them through my phone carrier makes it a little more permanent, you can always remove it but its a hassle so you don’t do it :)
Shoot let him figure it out. Then maybe he will move on!! lol and Good Riddance to him too!! I know you can do it, freeing yourself of him and other things you need to this year!! <3 :)
