It might be difficult to know whether to text an ex on their birthday or not.
Sending your ex a text could feel quite normal if you two have been able to get past the awkwardness that followed your breakup.
Sending them a birthday SMS, on the other hand, can come as a surprise and reignite old conflict if you don’t get along with them.
Knowing the appropriate birthday texts to send your ex without creating an awkward situation, however, is essential if you’re on friendly terms and want to acknowledge the day.
Here are some encouraging texts to keep the mood upbeat.
1. Happy birthday, [their name]!
2. HBD, [their name]. I hope you have an awesome day.
3. I hope this is the best year yet! Happy birthday!

Remember: Only you can determine the best course of action if you’re still unsure whether sending your ex a birthday text is a good idea.
Try to picture the reaction your ex might have upon receiving your message. (You probably know the response because you are familiar with them.) Let your texting fingers fly if you think it would make them smile!
