Why Guys Text After Dumping You

Why Guys Text After Dumping You

If you were with someone and he broke up with you and you want to move on in your life, the last thing you need is for him to text you.  He might ask you how you are or what you are doing, or he might ask you how work was.  It seems like he is trying to see how mad he can make you or it might make you think that he still loves you or wants you back.

This can be hard when someone that you loved texts you and it can make the wound deeper.  Your heart wants to think that he loves you and wants to be with you and you miss him, but you have a hard time trusting him.

Here is what is probably happening:


Chances are he is just stringing you on with his texts.  Sometimes he might be afraid that you are talking bad about him and want to stay friends because he doesn’t want to ruin his reputation with other people.  He might even just be playing you.


There is a chance that he might miss you and be thinking about you.  The problem is that he doesn’t love you, but he is comfortable by you.  He needs to learn that you don’t want to be with him if he wants to break up with you and you will not be his temporary fix.

Missing You

Sometimes your ex will want to hook back up.  It could be that he is drunk or horny and he wants to sleep with you.  If you want to do that, that’s okay but the more you do it the more power he will have over your heart.


Sometimes a guy will text you because he wants you to want and need him.  He doesn’t really want to be with you, but he needs you to need him so that he can have his ego stroked.


When you have a breakup, make sure you are taking care of you and that you are guarding your heart.  Don’t let an ex play you or make you feel bad after breaking up with you.
