In this technological savvy world, texting is the number one form of communication. But what happens when you look over your boyfriend’s shoulder and see he is texting his ex. Before turning into the incredible hulk and flipping out on him, follow these steps to easily fix the situation.

1) Ask Him

Sometimes for us women it is hard to confront our boyfriends. Instead of simply talking to them, we let the issues ponder in our brain as we think about all the different possibilities and outcomes that could happen from these issues. The sooner you ask your boyfriend what is going on, the easier it will be for your wandering mind to be put to rest. He could have a perfectly good explanation for why he is texting an ex. Maybe she asked him a question or maybe he is asking her a question. Just because you saw him texting her doesn’t mean he wants her back. Before your mind starts drifting in that direction, ask him what’s going on.

2) Ground Rules

If he is texting his ex more than he typically should be, come up with some agreeable rules. He wouldn’t like it if you’re texting your former boyfriend all the time, so why should he be doing this with his ex?  If he claims it’s no big deal than it should be no big deal to stop texting her all together or to only contact her if he absolutely needs to. Once you create rules that you can both follow, it will be easier to trust one another.

3) Have trust

If you do both of the above steps and come to an agreement that it isn’t appropriate for him to be texting an ex all the time, have faith that he will stop texting her. It makes no sense to replay the texts you saw and always wonder “what if” in your head. Your boyfriend obviously isn’t with his ex anymore for a reason. No matter what happened in his past relationships you have to remember that he is with you now, so have some confidence in knowing that!
