This Is Your Official Reminder To Not Text Your Ex This Thanksgiving

This is your official reminder to not text your ex this Thanksgiving. Even if you’re both home for the holidays and you’re feeling ✨ nostalgic ✨. Even if you never got proper “closure.” Even if you still have endless chemistry and want a quick hookup with someone familiar.

Do. Not. Do. It.

And here’s why: They’re your ex for a reason. You broke up for a reason. And even though winter coating is a popular dating trend right now, that doesn’t mean you have to partake in it! If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you? Exactly.

Don’t text your ex this Thanksgiving because there are far better ways to spend your holiday season other than crawling back to someone who broke your heart or who has no business being in your life anymore. Having shared history isn’t a good enough reason to write more of it.

Instead, spend time with your friends and family. Volunteer for a cause you care about. Drink your body weight in red wine while making Christmas cookies. And, finally, try being thankful for the breakup and delete their number instead. Let them go because you deserve to move on.
