If you’ve heard anything at all about Michael Fiore’s revolutionary program for fixing broken relationships, you’ll probably want a few Text Your Ex Back examples. One or two texts that you could use on your ex to figure out if this is going to work for you.
Of course you need to know what to text your ex to get her back – or him. We’ll give you some examples from Text Your Ex Back style messages in the sections below, but there is a very important warning that goes with this:
WHEN you send a text is just as important as WHAT you send. If you want to know how to win someone back, it’s not just a question of sending the special texts to get your ex back one after another, bombarding your estranged partner with SMS messages.
That will only drive them further away – even if the messages are perfectly crafted.
Patience is vital here and you must be prepared to stick to a strict timetable which Michael explains inside the system. If you want to try it for yourself now, you can get all of the details at the official website.
So with that said, let’s move on to a few example texts that you could send with the aim of winning back your ex – and keeping them forever!
Examples of ‘Across The Bow’ Texts
The phrase ‘across the bow’ comes from the days of sailing ships and the battle for supremacy of the seas. If a battleship encountered a foreign or suspicious ship, it would fire a warning shot across the front (the bow) of the other ship, doing no damage, as a ‘wake-up call’. It’s just like the police firing a shot into the air to warn people that they’re prepared to use their guns.
Of course with your ex the aim is not to threaten them with a text message, but to remind them that you’re still around and interested in them in a friendly way. It should be sent after you haven’t been in touch with your ex at all for a while.
The word ‘friendly’ there is very important! You’re not asking for anything in this text. No suggestions of meeting up or talking on the phone. The idea is to remind them of times when you were happy together, and maybe start a text conversation. For example:
Just saw [movie name]. I think you’d like it, it reminded me of the time we saw [other movie name] and how much we laughed!
Stuck in traffic, driving me crazy! Stopped right next to a [ex’s model of car] and it reminded me of you. Made me smile. Hope yours is still on the road!
You can see more Across The Bow text examples here.
You’ll see there are no demands, not even any questions in this kind of message. It’s easy for your ex to reply if they want to (they can thank you for the movie recommendation or tell you how their car is doing) but they don’t have to.
Weirdly, this makes it more likely that they will reply. If you said, “Is your car still on the road?” it might feel like you were trying to get some kind of hold on their life again. Of course you are, but you’ll only drive them away by asking questions. Wait for them to volunteer information.
If your ex doesn’t reply to your first text, you’ll need that patience again before sending anything else!
Making Your Ex Curious
Another thing that you can easily do in text messages (because they are so short) is to make your ex curious about what you are doing now. As soon as they start wondering what you are doing, they are getting interested in you again.
The way to do this is simply not to give too much information in your texts.
So with the movie example that we gave a moment ago, you wouldn’t tell them who you saw that movie with, or where you saw it. Let your ex wonder about that.
Here are some more sample texts that might help you win someone back:
Waiting for a plane – exciting times! Hope you’re doing well.
(You don’t tell them where you’re going or what’s exciting about it)
Hey – hope things are going well for you. Do you happen to remember the name of that restaurant where we had the amazing clams?
(Make them wonder who you’re going to dinner with)
As you can see from that last example, if you want to make your ex jealous, the way to do it is not to talk on and on about what a hot/smart/successful person your new date is, but just hint very vaguely that you might be seeing someone. We’ve got more about this in our article on how to make your ex girlfriend jealous. A lot of those tips will work for an ex boyfriend too.
The aim of all of these text messages is to start a conversation on a non-intrusive, friendly level. So you’ll see from the examples above, there’s never any suggestion of the emotional baggage that you might be carrying. You don’t say anything about meeting up; you don’t hint that you miss your ex.
The most important thing to remember when you are sending text messages to get your ex back is that anything demanding or emotional may make your ex run in the opposite direction. You need to take a step back so that they can become interested in you again – like at the beginning of your relationship.
