Are you the type of person that’s always trying to text their ex after a few too many drinks? Thankfully, we found a list of six questions you should ask yourself before doing just that. You can thanks us later (after a couple of Advil and water and sleep.)
- How are you going to feel about this sober? Try to live by this rule: When in doubt, don’t.
- What are you hoping to get out of this? Drunk texting your ex at 2 a.m. isn’t exactly showing him the best version of you.
- Can you just raid your fridge instead? Is there food in your fridge to eat that is better than your ex-boyfriend?
- Have you established post-breakup boundaries? If you two made an agreement not to talk after you broke up, then you should honor that.
- Can you text a friend instead? Find a friend to send your impulsive texts to.
- But wait…do you still have feelings for your ex? Because if you do, that’s a whole other situation entirely.
