Wondering what to text your ex? Don't wonder anymore!You’ve finished the no contact period and now you want to know exactly what to text your ex. Well you’re in luck, because in this article I’ll outline several different types of text messages you can send your ex to make him or her miss you and want to take you back.

Although I can’t fully guarantee these text messages will get your ex back overnight, I can guarantee that they will increase your chances of getting your ex to at least respond to you in a positive way. From there you’ll be able to start the process of getting your ex back into your life.

Before I share these messages, first let me tell you what not to send your ex.

What NOT to Text Your Ex

The Pointless Text

This is something that you must absolutely avoid doing if you want your ex to text you back. You know exactly what I’m talking about when I say this, and yes, you probably hate it as much as I do.

Allow me to explain.

Do you ever get text messages from a friend or family member that just contain one word, like “Hi” or “’sup”? It absolutely aggravates me! That said, something as simple as “Hey, how are you doing?” or “Hey, what’s up?” can be just as bad.

Why are these so bad? Well, first of all, they’re pointless because they don’t inspire emotions at all. In fact, they may even give your ex a negative image of you because you sound bored, uninteresting, and frankly, not like a happy person. By sending a text like this, you are sub-communicating to your ex that you’re unhappy with life and that you need to talk to him or her. Don’t do this.

(IMPORTANT: If you want to learn a number of texts to send your ex to make him or her beg and plead for you to come back, then I strongly advise you watch this video. It’s by Michael Fiore, and it’s the best “How to get your ex back” program for getting your ex back through text messages).

What to Text Your Ex

The Good Reminder Text

This is one of the first texts you should be sending your ex, and the message it conveys to them is that you are totally over them, though you still think about them from time to time.  It’s designed to make you look thoughtful, happy, and best of all, it has a point to it.

Here are a couple examples of the “Good Reminder Text”.

 “Hey. Was just watching the Dallas Stars play the Vancouver Canucks tonight and your favourite player scored a goal! Made me think about how fun watching those games with you were!”

“Hey, Matthew Good Band is playing at the McPherson Playhouse next month! Thought you’d like to know because I remember how much you loved them! =D”

Get it? They’re pretty innocent, right? Also notice that I use a few exclamation marks here and there. This is really important because exclamation marks convey happiness.

The Feel Good Text

This text is my secret sauce.

A few days after you interact with your ex, you’re going to want to use one of these text messages. It’s pretty similar to the first text, but it takes it a step further.

Texting your ex back into bed is so easy!

Basically, you’ll want to recollect a moment in your relationship that was extremely powerful and positive, then remind your ex of it. Be sure to describe it fully in order to evoke a really big emotional response from your ex.

Here are a couple examples:

“Remember when we saved that little cat from that tree? I just remembered how good it was to hold your hand after we saved her. Hope all is well with you.”

“I just remembered that time we were stuck in that rain storm at your parent’s place, home alone… and how great it felt holding you in my arms in front of the fire. Hope things are great.”

Again, there are a ton of other text messages that you can send your ex that will optimize your chances of getting him or her back. For more text examples, watch this video by Michael Fiore (he’s been on the Rachel Ray show because of his program); it’ll help get your ex back in no time!
