Just broke up, do I text him on his birthday?

My bf and I broke up exactly a week before his birthday. I am trying to give him space and not text or call him. Is it okay to text him and just say happy birthday so he knows that I still care or should I stick with not saying anything at all?

  • Texting him on his birthday would usually convey good will if the breakup went smooth and was mutual. Doing so that soon after separation does complicate it, especially if there is bitterness on either end - might elicit a more grudging thanks, but just because the friendliness is dissonant with current feelings.

    In my experience it feels better to have someone who was in your closest confidence still friendly after separation. Wishing him a happy birthday sets you on this path, and the risk is better than the risk that he would have wanted such a wish and took note of that you didn't send it.

  • I personally don't see why you should considering your no longer together and at this point I'd imagine your trying to move on.

  • Well who broke up with who? Either way if it were me, I wouldn't. It's a waste of time. I mean, you just broke up. The most you'll probably get out of sending that text will probably be a dry ass, "thanks" and that'll be it.
