Say you get a random text message from your most important ex saying hey, do you freak out?

One of my ex's just texted me hey and I don't really know how to feel ha ha like I just can't explain it. It's the one that I loved. Is it normal to feel like this or am I just overreacting?

  • It's normal. My ex texted Hey out of the blue a few weeks ago. I freaked out because I was trying to figure out why he was reaching out. After a few hours, I texted back. It turned out that he was just sobering up and feeling lonely. He decided that I needed an update on his life or something like that. After he realized that I was giving short answers and not offering any information about myself, he decided to end the conversation. He called a couple of weeks later, but I didn't answer...even though I still love him.

    • Do you have a boyfriend now?

    • No, I still love my ex...so it hasn't felt right to be with someone else yet.

Have an opinion?

  • Nah, it's understandable, especially if they did all the damage in the breaking up. I know of a couple of guys that if they were to randomly get in touch with me, I wouldn't know wtf to do either.

    Sometimes there's still residual stuff that sticks around from a break up, no matter HOW long it's been because until you've been able to face specific situations, it's sort of buried until the time presents itself. I think there's always "phases" post break up, including the usual "grieving period" where you deal with all the misc. emotions. Once you get past that, it's dealing with the emotions that come up from places you went, that first time you see them post break up, the first time they attempt to get back in touch, hearing about the new SO, etc.

    It happens.

  • It's normal to feel that way. I felt weird about it the last time my ex boyfriend tried to contact me.

  • I think it's normal yeah, especially if she's the one who dumped you and you still have some feelings for her.

    Don't freak out though. It doesn't mean you're getting back together or anything. It just means Hey.

  • You're not overreacting.

    For me, one of my ex's tried to contact me and knowing her, she was trying her hardest to make me jealous and gloat about her new guy.

    I gave simple responses like "hello" just to be civil. Sure enough, she starts going off about how she's doing this and that with her BF, and I just stopped responding. Poor guy, he didn't know what he was getting himself into.
