He Broke Up With Me but Keeps Texting Me

When you break up with someone and that person becomes an ex, in theory it means that someone has decided that each one should follow a new and separate path. But sometimes it can happen that the day comes when your ex tries to contact you again. This may seem strange or contradictory, especially if they were the one to break up with you. This may seem even stranger if this person is currently in what seems to be a ‘‘happy’’ relationship.

If you are asking yourself ‘‘Why does my ex keep texting me but has a boyfriend (or girlfriend)?’’ You’ve come to the right place. In the following OneHOWTO article we will be discussing when an ex texts you what it means, as well as should you text back an ex that texts you. Keep reading for more post-breakup advice!

Ex keeps texting me: does he miss me?

If your break up is relatively recent, it is likely that your ex (even if in another relationship) will still be thinking about you. There are many reasons why this might be the case. This can happen because maybe their current relationship is not very serious or they have only been together for a few months. The most common reason why an ex messages is because they miss you or want to just see how you are. In some cases, however, an ex might text to rekindle the relationship.

In this situation, we recommend that you reflect on the reasons why the relationship ended in the first place. If it was because of problems such as incompatibility or falling out of love with that person, you should remember this. However, if the reasons were superficial or minor, there is no harm in considering giving it another chance, as long ends it with his current partner respectfully.

Another reason why your ex might be contacting you again is because you were the one who decided to end the relationship. If you ex is in another relationship, maybe they are still not over you and are trying to make you jealous.

If you still believe that you made the best decision for both of you, we suggest having a sincere conversation with your ex. Be honest, if you don’t want to be in contact with them, tell him/her. It may be painful for them at first, but in the long term, it will help you both of you overcome the break up faster and move on. Are you in a relationship but want to end it and don’t know how? If so, we recommend reading our article where we look at how to break up with someone respectfully.

Ex texting but has a boyfriend or girlfriend: why?

One of the reasons why your ex may still chasing you is possibly because they are not happy in their new relationship. If they left you and are now with someone totally different from you, it might be because they initially thought that they needed something different, but in hindsight realize that they were wrong. You must have heard the saying ‘distance makes the heart grow fonder’, sometimes it takes someone to lose what they had to realize what they really want.

When this happens, it is possible that the person who broke up with you, is reconsidering their way of looking at you and want to try give the relationship another chance. The decision of whether you want your ex to be in your life again or not, is only yours. However, we recommend that you think about it and, above all, stay true to what you really want.

In some cases, however, it is also important to remember that some people like control. Often, an ex will text you just to know that they still have an affect on you. In these such cases, it doesn’t mean they actually want you. It’s important to be able to distinguish between sincerity and desire for attention. In this case, we recommend putting yourself first. Make sure you do what you want and feel is necessary.

Ex texted me: do they want to have sex with me?

The last reason we can assume your ex is contacting you again is that, if we’re being brutally honest, they just want to have sex with you again. The reasons may be that they have seen your latest photos online and are finding you attractive ‘again’. It could be that they’re still learning about their new partner in bed and want to experience something more familiar or it’s possible they just want some excitement.

Whatever the reason, remember that this motive is simply sexual and not emotional. It is likely that they will satisfy their sexual needs and return back to their current partner. Therefore, think well if having sex with your partner is a good idea, especially if they are currently in a relationship. Either way, it is important to remember, always put your needs first, because no one will look after you better than yourself. In addition, if your ex is with someone else, remember to also take that person’s feelings into consideration. Not only will you be avoiding drama, but the best way to respect yourself is by also respecting others.
