Breaking up is something we all experience at one time or another. But just because we all go through it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with or any less hurtful when it happens. Few things hurt as bad or as long as being rejected by someone you love.
Not all breakups are bad, however. Sometimes a breakup is necessary to stop a cycle of abusive behavior and end an unhealthy relationship. No one should stay with a partner who is emotionally or physically abusive.
Other times, a breakup occurs, and you feel it’s a mistake. Maybe it happened in the heat of an argument. Maybe you or your partner cheated, but greatly regret doing so. Deep down you know you still love the other person and feel like the problems in the relationship aren’t so bad they can’t be resolved with some effective communication from both sides.
Maybe you’re going through that situation right now. Maybe you’re wondering how to proceed. Where do you go from here? What do you do? What steps can you take to get your ex back and create the loving, fun, and amazing relationship you know is possible?
You miss your ex. You want to contact them. So what do you do? You reach for your smart phone to send them a text. You’re not alone. It’s what we all do in this day and age.
But is it a good idea? Is using technology to text your ex after a breakup a good way to get him or her back? Or will it only push them further away?
Many old-school relationship coaches blame technology for many of today’s relationship problems. They believe technology has taken the “human touch” out of relationships and has weakened our ability to effectively connect through communication. Their advice is to never text your ex after a breakup.
Other relationship experts take a different approach. For example, Seattle-based relationship coach, Michael Fiore, believes texting is one of the absolute best ways to communicate with an ex.
Considered by many to be the leading authority on using technology to improve human connection, Michael Fiore is the author of three different texting manuals. One of those programs is called Text Your Ex Back, a guide specifically designed to teach men and women how to effectively use text messages to get an ex back after a breakup. You can learn more about Michael and his Text Your Ex Back program at www.michaelfiore.org.
In the end, texting itself is neither good nor bad. It can be both. It just depends on how you use it. The right text messages, like those from the Text Your Ex Back system, can make all the difference in the world and can help you quickly repair a relationship and reconnect with your ex…even if they’ve ignored your texts in the past.
On the other hand, the wrong text messages can come across as needy, desperate, and all-around unattractive. These types of messages will only drive your ex further away.
Whether we like it or not, texting is one of the biggest and most effective ways we communicate in today’s modern age. Texts aren’t going away anytime soon. For that reason, if you want your ex back after a breakup, it would be foolish to ignore text messages as an avenue to reconnect and repair your relationship.
