When we get up in the morning and start preparing for the day, we often find our minds bogged down with thoughts about the important things. You know what we mean – the things that you either stayed up late last night tossing and turning over or the things that filled your dreams.
It’s not unusual for your thoughts and dreams to filled with your ex-boyfriend. This is definitely true when you’ve either just recently broken up or you’re still in love with him.
So, what are you supposed to do? Should you send him a casual good morning text to try and stir up conversation with him or avoid talking to him at all?
Those are confusing questions that we’re prepared to answer. We’ll also give you over twenty morning texts for your ex-boyfriend in case you don’t know what to say.
How to Know if It’s Okay to Text Your Ex
The first question that must always be addressed when considering texting your ex-boyfriend is whether or not you should. Should you be sending him morning texts at all, or would be it be wiser to move on?
In general, as much as it hurts to hear it, it’s typically better to let go and move on. He’s your ex-boyfriend for a reason, after all.

But we understand that there are times where you simply can’t let go. You may still have feelings for him and legitimately think you’re meant to be together. You may also simply miss his friendship and want to build a platonic relationship with him again.
Since you’re looking at this article, you’re probably in one of the former situations. That being said, let’s look at when you can text him.
We think it’s perfectly suitable to contact him again if you’re on good enough terms to regularly communicate with him. You can also text him when you’re working on getting back together or if the breakup wasn’t too recent (for example, a couple days ago).
However, avoid texting him at all costs if you don’t feel totally safe talking to him, he’s happily in another relationship, or your breakup was extremely recent. In the latter case, we strongly suggest going through a no contact period prior to reaching out to him again.
Mornings Texts for Your Ex-Boyfriend
We’ve divided our list of texts into two sections: one for texts you can use when you’re closer to your ex, and another for when there’s a bit of distance between you. That way, you can find a text for just about any situation from the following list.
If you feel like none of these texts would work for your ex-boyfriend, consider turning to additional resources like the Text Chemistry program. It’s a course made by an actual relationship coach and has plenty of text templates for you to choose from to make things easier for you.
Mornings Texts for When You’re on Good Terms with Your Ex
In this section, we’re going to show you texts you can send to your ex when you’re on good terms. We define this as being actual friends with him or being able to regularly communicate with him with minimal discomfort.
If conversations are icy between you, you fight frequently, or he does what he can to avoid you, then these texts are not necessarily appropriate. You can take a look at our guide to how to get your ex-boyfriend back from a bad breakup for further guidance.

Mornings Texts for When You Need to Rebuild your Relationship with Your Ex
What if things are perhaps a little chilly between you and your ex? We’re not talking about downright hostile, either – we mean when you’re totally neutral towards each other.
In that case, you’ll need to work at building a warm connection. Using the following text messages can start to open up that door between you again.

Great For: When you want to casually figure out how he’s doing. The tone in his answer will tell you a lot about whether he’s open to further conversation.
