Communicating with Exes

I don't have a whole lot of experience with ex-boyfriends.  In fact, most of mine were between the ages of thirteen and fifteen and are now great friends of ours.  BUT, my sister on the other hand, has quite a collection in her past.  Sometimes, I kind-of like to live vicariously through her and her wild life. Tonight is one of those nights.

So, on behalf of girls everywhere, I'd like to send a little message to the ex-boyfriends of the world.

Sending a photo-text message like THIS randomly at 2:16PM on a Tuesday TEN years after you broke up is just plain strange.
Face blurred to protect the innocent... No other adjustments have been made to this photo.


Seriously?  I'd like to know how this went down.  Was he just in the gym in the middle of the day and thought, "Man, I am looking good.  I think I'll send Kathryn a picture just to remind her of how hot I am"? Honestly, if boys would share HALF of their self-confidence with most of the girls I know, we'd be set!!!

And, in case you are wondering, here's how the rest of the text message conversation read:

K - Did you mean to send this to me?  (I LOVE that she would write this back.)

Ex - Yes.  I'm flexing so it doesn't look like that 24/7, but I'm working on it.  (PLEASE tell me that a friend stole his phone and sent this!)  Your birthday is coming up, isn't it.  (Is this supposed to be a gift?)

K - Yes.

The End.

I'm pretty sure this can fall under the category of "Midweek Laughs."  What advice do you have for exes trying to attempt communication?  We ought to get some good ones here!

  12. Oh good heavens!! That seriously tops any ex-boyfriend contact stories I've got. Ewww....so not okay.

    My only advie is ignore, ignore, ignore. I think if both parties are in happy relationships, and there is no possibility that they are trying to rekindle anything, then that's fine. Otherwise...ignore, ignore, ignore...

  14. Oh my word... That is even weirder than my ex-boyfriend liking a picture of me on facebook 2 years after the break-up. (Full disclosure the picture was of my tush that a friend took and posted without my knowing!) But, still, men!!

  16. This is utterly fantastic. He was probably, in some backwards way, trying to open the lines of communication again, but doing so in the absolute worst way possible. And in the middle of the night? I hope he was drunk. I've had an ex who used to text me that he works out 7 days a week now. Or, going to the gym again. And I thought that was creepy. At least it didn't come with photographic evidence.
