time capsule - who I've texted

A podcast I was listening to interviewed the guy who started texts from your ex on instagram and I realized something - I missed all this!

Almost my entire dating life happened in the time before text messages.

Marc was the first guy I dated and would text - and it was not with the speed we text now, and there weren't screenshots. I had my motorola razr with T9 mode. It made for kinda slow texting but we did it. We mostly emailed, if we were typing to each other.

And we got married! so hey, maybe all I needed was texting to really solidify a relationship? heh.

I've never had a text from an ex.

I have texts to and from exes, knowing one ex our texts are on a site like that.  I never thought of it at the time, but now it's different.

Thank you for sharing texts from your ex -- I didn't know about it. I have been extremely disciplined about not texting nonsense to someone I broke up with recently. For some reason I'm finding reading these quite therapeutic :-)

I am now following them and it's amazing.

I've been with my husband for 8 years and changed my number three times haha I wish I could get texts like this bc I would respond the same way, for most of them :)

You are so young. In my day, writing stuff on public bathroom walls was our only way to get back at an ex via text.

Me too. Not sorry about that. At least with cell calls from an ex, you see the number and just don't pick up.

Oh my goodness, I just realized I didn't even own a cell phone before Brian, so I've never even received a cell phone call from an ex, much less a text.
