Important Note 2: Before you make any moves, find out your chances of getting your ex back by taking this quiz.
Should You Call or Text Your Ex On V Day?
The only reason to call your ex on Valentine’s Day is if you two are going out on a date. Any other reason for contacting your ex will make you look needy and desperate. You might want to convince yourself with reasons like
I just want to wish them a Happy Valentine
We always wished each other Valentine, even before we were together. I think it’ll be rude not to wish them.
I just want to call my ex and know if he/she has any plan for Valentine
And all these reasons reek of neediness. Here’s why.
You and your ex are officially broken up right now. If you contact them on Valentine’s day, the day made famous by greeting card companies for being the most romantic day of the year, you are making it obvious that you are not over your ex and you are hoping that somehow this magical day will make them come back to you.
You should not call, text or do anything to contact your ex on the 14th of February. It will not help you move on or heal from the breakup. The best thing you can do for yourself and your ex is to just focus on yourself, do things that make you feel good and spend time with loved ones.
But What If My Ex Is Going On a Date On V Day?
Even if your ex is planning to go on a date on Valentine’s Day, calling them is not going to change that. You are only going to make yourself look like a fool trying to convince your ex not to go on a date.
But I Just Want To Know if My Ex Has a Date?
How will it affect you? It’ll only make you feel worse. And it’s going to make you look needy and desperate in front of your ex. Let them have their date, if you ever get back together again, you can ask them whether or not they had a date for Valentine’s. But until then, don’t talk about it.
Should I Get a Gift for My Ex on Vday?
Again, it’s a needy and desperate move. Unless you are already back together (or are extremely close to reconciliation), getting your ex a gift will show him that you are expecting the magical Valentine’s day to reignite their feelings for you. I won’t recommend getting them a card either.
Should I Go Out On a Date?
Absolutely. It’s better than sitting home and feeling miserable about yourself.
What Should I Do If I Don’t Have a Date?
Realize that not having a date on Valentine’s does not mean anything. It does not define you as a person and it doesn’t make you any less than someone who does have a date.
I don’t recommend you do anything desperate or needy just because you feel you need a date on Valentine’s. Instead, spend the holiday with yourself, with your friends, and your family. If Valentine’s Day is about love, choose this day to love yourself and appreciate all the love you have in your life.
Your ex does not have to be your only source of love and happiness. Since you have broken up, it’s time to focus on other areas for love and happiness.
Should I Ask My Ex Out on a Date?
You should not ask your ex out on a date. In most cases, it does not make sense to try to repair your relationship with your ex. If you have just broken up, it’s better to focus on healing by doing no contact.
If you are thinking about getting your ex back, read this article first to figure out if getting back together is a good idea.
If you are sure that getting back with your ex will be a healthy decision for you, you should still not suddenly ask them out on Valentine’s day. Instead, make read this article on getting your ex back to understand the whole process.
