Get to the Make-Up Sext
So how do you keep things from getting out of hand? Send him a text when you’re miffed, but make sure it only says this: “Hey, when can I see you?” Don’t hint at what’s making you angry—doing so will only start the snowball rolling. “All you’re doing is reaching out and letting him know you want to connect in person,” says Amador. If you’ve already exchanged a few heated lines, delete the conversation. Otherwise, it’s too tempting to eyeball the testy texts again and again in the future or dredge them up as ‘evidence’ when you’re talking things through. Deleting the convo from your phone won’t delete it from your memory, but it will make it easier to move on.
