I know in moments of passion it's really difficult to remember this sentiment, but I'm going to jam it down your throat for good measure—your ex is you ex for a reason. Whether they left you or you left them, it doesn't matter! You can spend the rest of your life crying over spilled milk or you can saddle up and keep it moving. Problem is, exes are known to come back around when you least expect it. In fact, I'm convinced there's some sort of voodoo radar involved. It's as if the moment you've picked up the pieces, healed your heart, and are ready to carry on they decide to hit you with that, "You up?" text at 2 AM. I've been on both sides of this scenario—neither are fun.
What if it was more than that, though? What if instead of a familiar booty call, your ex went a step further? One such question was posed by Reddit user, LonelyJewOnXmas—
"If your ex texted you "I still love you and want you back", what will be your reply?"
I really don't know what I would say. A big part of me thinks I'd say, "New phone, who dis?" But in the same respect, it's been quite some time since my ex and I split. I'm with someone new, I'm happy—and ultimately, I want him to be happy (and alone forever). The answers from other people definitely ran the gamut on emotion and, of course, made me LOL hard at my desk.
