It’s been a while since I was single, but the thing I miss least is getting messages from someone I’m no longer dating asking for… anything. Frankly, anything an ex had to say to me over text was, from their perspective, an emergency.

Luckily, I’m now able to look back and laugh at these weird interactions that felt bad at the time. Even luckier, there’s an Instagram account called @textsfromyourex that compiles these sad interactions so we can all feel less alone.
They’re funny and sad at the same time. Just like every breakup.
