This is why I believe ex's should break contact with one another. There are generally three scenarios when ex's continue to contact each other.
1) Fast forward a few months or a year or so and they hate each other's guts
2) Fast forward a few months or a year or so and one of them is heartbroken a second time when the other starts a new relationship.
3) Fast forward a few months or a year or so and they are good friends.
Sadly, scenarios 1 and 2 are the most common outcomes. Perhaps, Anon, it's for the best that he's not returning your text.
The last girlfriend I had before I met my wife ended our relationship. She put her arms around me, kissed me very tenderly, and said, "Good bye. You take care of yourself." Oh, we did bump into each other from time to time, but it was accidental. This is the kind of memory you want to have of your ex. Not memories of arguing and heartache.

Sometimes just moving on is what is needed. I had the same thing happen and we dropped all contact and we moved on for a while. Maybe one day (depending on how close you two were) he will realize if he should not have given you up or that maybe you are actually happier without him
