Deciding whether or not to text an ex on their birthday can be confusing AF. If you and your ex have managed to move past the residual post-breakup weirdness and be friends, shooting them a text might feel totally normal. On the other hand, if you’re not on speaking terms, sending them a birthday text might come out of left field and stir up old drama. But if you’re on neutral terms and want to acknowledge the day, knowing the right type of birthday texts to send your ex without making things awkward is key. Here are some positive texts that will keep the mood light.
