Breakups are hard. And having a cordial and healthy equation with our exes post-breakup is even harder. This may be because of underlying resentment, anger, bitterness or even a touch of sadness and hurt. Which is why most often we hear exes deleting each other’s number and severing all contact.
But sometimes, we come across people who still respect and care about their former partners. These instances are few and far between but are real nonetheless. Here’s one of them.
Twitter user @_xolexc unexpectedly received a text from her ex-boyfriend a day before his wedding. And what he said left her speechless. Take a look.

Everyone comes into your life for a reason and each relationship you’re in, good/bad, should help teach and mold you to be a “perfect” partner for your future mate. I think this was sweet and I’m sure well deserved. Cheers to being adults and expressing emotions healthily. 💕

Thanks for sharing these great tweets between you & your former boyfriend. People, esp. kids, need to see that exes don’t HAVE to be enemies because romantic love has run its course. Friendship & respect can remain. I wish happiness & success for both of you & your families.

Do you think exes can look beyond the past and have a friendly equation with each other? Or is it better to avoid stirring the pot and keep a healthy distance? Tell us.
