While you may be lucky enough to have good memories of your ex, these texts show that some relationships are better left in the past.
A hilarious online gallery collated by Shareably from the textsfromyourex Instagram account has revealed some of the most devastating responses people have received when they tried to ignite a former flame.
The cutting messages include someone who corrected their ex’s spelling during their heartfelt attempt to win them back, and another who had renamed their previous partner ‘Waste of time’ on their phone.
Another savage response included someone who thought their ex was trying to type a message to send to them, but discovered they were only lingering on their contact information so they could block them.
