You’re clutching on to your mobile phone amidst a hurricane of mixed emotions of loneliness, agony, pain, missing, or even horny, and only one thought is controlling you: I want to text him! Him?! Your ex!
Ok, to be honest we’ve all been there. I guess this kind of urge is common especially shortly after a break up, but also it can happen after several months even years of no contact. But, is it wise to do so? Obviously not and there are zillion reasons why it’s a stupid idea. If you’re hesitant and can’t keep your fingers off the phone, these tips will help you win the fight.
Don’t lose it for nostalgia
You came across an old picture of you together, heard a song, or visited the place you used to go to together. All are legitimate reasons to make you miss your ex, but it’s not likely that he feels the same at the same moment. So don’t give in to the post-breakup messing with your mind. You may have pure intentions to just say hello, yet you don’t want to sound like “Oh, please take me back”. It will only make you less desirable. So, don’t text your ex.
Don’t give him a victory moment
Let’s put it straightforward, you feel lonely and the first thing that pops out is texting your ex. It becomes very tempting to try to reach out to the person who used to fulfill you emotionally and physically. Texting your ex in this situation, he will think immediately “She wants me.” Do you really want to give that guy a feeling of victory? He doesn’t deserve that moment of satisfaction after what he did to you (remind yourself of all the shitty things he did). So, don’t text your ex.
It would have worked for you the first time
There’s a reason you and your ex are no longer together. You are not good for each other. Okay you may think you can work it out again focusing on the good thing you shared. But, the reasons you split will always be there, therefore it’s most likely you will relive it one more time. Save yourself the inevitable moment of ending up at the same point. So, don’t text your ex.
Enjoy that moment when you’re over him
It is okay to feel lost and anguished after a break up. Yes it can be hard to meet new people, but it’s not impossible. Forget about your ex and think about all the opportunities waiting for you out there. So, put down your mobile phone and embrace life. Imagine how satisfying to be truly over your ex, and being ready for your next adventure. So, don’t text your ex.
Why torture yourself twice?
The thought of a “we need a closure” practically means you need to talk to your ex one last time to confirm that you’re finished. In other words, double the torture by being broken up with twice. Hurting one time is enough, so distract the thought by keeping busy with friends, gym, or charity. And don’t text your ex.
Keep the Mystery
When you lose contact with your ex after breaking up, he wouldn’t know what you’re doing with your life. He’ll probably think you’re over it and wonder whom you’re dating now. Keeping this mysterious aura makes you more desirable. If you text him, you will immediately kill this impression. Instead of being jealous how you managed after the break up, he will lose interest at once, and you become the girl he wasn’t all that into. So, don’t do it. Don’t text your ex.
Is this the best you can do?
He did you wrong and didn’t give you what you deserve breaking up with you in the first place. Your heart is so precious, don’t degrade it. When you go back texting him you’re implying that you can’t get any better. Honestly, there are so many incredible guys out there, give yourself a chance to discover them. Believe me when you start doing so, you‘ll be deleting every massage, even every memory you had with that ex. Put the phone down and don’t text your ex.
Help yourself to start again. Don’t get stuck in a former relation. Talking to a friend about your urges is always helpful, just put down the phone, and don’t text your ex.
Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to Host Two Temporary Exhibitions
Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Anany has announced that two temporary exhibitions will be held in the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir in light of the 150th anniversary of the museum’s establishment.
The exhibitions will launch on November 15 and will revolve around education and caches in ancient Egypt.
An inspection tour will also take place among the celebrations with the attendance of Minister of Antiquities Khaled el-Anany, some of the ministry’s leaders and well-known public figures.
Earlier on November 12, the Chairman of the Chinese Consultative Council and a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Wang Yang visited the museum along with the rest of his party.
All of whom were very impressed by the magnificent display of the ancient Egyptian civilization, and were intrigued to learn about Ancient Egypt and the history it holds.
Ashraf Hamdi’s ‘A Voice Note’ Returns With Another Heart-warming Story
Director/ Writer Ashraf Hamdi strikes again with the release of his latest VN14: “Only If Time Was..” and after one year of fans waiting around for another voice note, Hamdi didn’t disappoint and delivered an outstanding piece different than the others but still holds the same magic that we all fell for.
The Voice Note tells once again a love story, one that started with a spark but ended tragically, leaving us all in awe. It’s a story that shows chemistry between two but when bad timing interferes and fate gets in the way, it ends differently than one would have expected.
The Voice Note is featuring the beautiful Aya AbdelHamid and Khaled El Zommor with the voice-overs done by Hamdi and Heidy Ahmed and as usual is written, directed, edited by Hamdi. What makes it even more personalized this time, is that the entire music of the episode was composed from scratch and is courtesy of Ashraf El Ziftawi.
That was Hamdi’s first collaboration with a musical composer and he worked along Ashraf El Ziftawi for 3 months and before that they spent a year composing music for other commercials and work.
The music wasn’t the only highlight of the short film, but also the song at the end that was exclusively written and recorded for it, making the Voice Note more intriguing and special.
We spoke with Ashraf Hamdi regarding these collaborations and he told us how unusual it is for him to do such a thing but he loves collaborating with fresh, young talents and shedding the light on their work.
For those who don’t know, the Voice Note series is the creation of the brilliant Ashraf Hamdi where love stories are told through a voice note. Every Voice Note holds a story and every story was based on a meaningful inspiration.
In his stories, you can find ‘love you didn’t love’ or an experience that you relate to, or maybe a completion of a love story that you didn’t have the chance to completely live.
When asked why the VN14 took so long, his answer was simply that ‘you need to be inspired,” and we are so glad he did. He also revealed that he likes everything in the project to be very personalized, even the cast, he needs to connect with them and love them in a way.
We hope Hamdi stays inspired so we can get to witness more of his magic!
It’s Time You Walk Away When…
I hold my phone every other second, still, not a single word from him. I toss and I turn, not able to sleep, and I start to wonder, is he okay? What is he doing right now? Has he gone home safely? I’ll text and see. ‘No. Stop it. He’s fine not hearing from you.’ My overthinking begins to tell me.
Why is he okay not asking about me when I’m not? Well, maybe because this is my first sign that I should away.
1- They care less than you do
When your relationship starts getting fragile, it is important that the other person assures you that they have equal feelings. That you’re both in this together, and you will work it out, together. It should never be all on you, you shouldn’t be the only person making the effort. So stop being the quicker person to call, and stop worrying so much. Let them do the call, the texting, let them do the fixing. Because again, you’re in this together, or you’re out, you walk away.
2- They always make excuses not to meet
You want to meet up, go over things, discuss it like adults and come up with a plan, right? But it never happens, right? Because they always seem to find an excuse to get out of it, or they simply can’t do this same conversation again. They say they can’t do this fighting anymore, but when you’re fighting for your relationship, then it’s legitimate and if they can’t do it, they don’t deserve you.
3- They can’t be trusted
Relationships can lack several fundamentals, but one thing it should never lack, is trust. It is what relationships are built on, and once it is taken from the equation, the relationship falls. I’m not telling you to give up the second they do you wrong, but to earn your trust again, they should work hard for it, and this chance you are giving them, should never be taken for granted.
4- They are cold
The way they treat you is cold, the way they respond is cold, even the way they smile back at you is cold. This change in behavior can only be spotted by you, and when you start comparing their responses to the way it used to be, this is when you will get your answer.
Never allow yourself to be with someone, who just doesn’t seem to care anymore. Someone who’s keeping you, because they are being selfish, and not reasonable.
5- They exhibit an error in communication
Communication is a key to a healthy relationship, it’s important for the both of you to know that you’re standing on the same ground, that you both feel and want the same thing. It’s okay to experience some miscommunication, but what matters is for the both of you to admit having this issue; so you can work through it and get past it.
Try to allow the space for each of you to speak their minds, with no interruptions AT ALL. Listening is a key to understanding, and accepting that difference in your point of views, is another key.
I can never really tell you for sure that this is your cue to leave, because at the end, it’s not signs that you should follow, it is your intuition. So what does it tell you?
