National Text Your Ex Day

National Text Your Ex Day is celebrated annually on October 30th in the United States. The holiday is unusual, because not everyone maintains warm relations with former girlfriends and boyfriends. If you are ready to participate in something new, plunge into nostalgia, then join the date!


On National Day, decide whether you will write or not. Sometimes curiosity gets the better of us – what is our first (or not) love doing now, how does it live, what is interesting … It is interesting to learn about the life of a person who was once the whole world for us.

Not everyone can overcome the barrier and write a banal message “how are you?”. We suggest taking the phone and reading the correspondence from the very beginning. Even if the breakup happened on a bad note, we are sure that the initial period was fabulous. Remember how many good things were in the relationship, and do not hold evil – this is a kind of therapy.

Short Message Service was first used in 1992 on December 3rd. Neil Papworth, a test engineer, wrote the world’s first message on a friend’s phone. The text was simple: “Merry Christmas!” The technology gained popularity in 2007.

How to celebrate

Get rid of guilt if it haunts you because of a breakup – talk to your ex and tell him how much he meant to you. Do not reproach yourself – everything happens in life! Get together in a circle of friends and write to the former at the same time: support will show that the matter is not at all terrible!
