These days it seems there's a day for everything. For instance today, October 30th, is National Text Your Ex Day. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or a bad idea.

On the one hand, it's always good to end things cordially and keep in touch. What didn't work out romantically may end up being a lifelong friendship. Then again, you don't want to restart something that wasn't all that great the first time around. I mean, they're your "ex" for a reason right?

Ultimately it's up to you whether you text your ex or not. And there don't seem to be any rules about what you're supposed to say. It could be, "Hey. I hope you're doing well." Or it could be, "Just checking in to let you know I'm glad you're not in my life any more."

Today is also National Check List Day, so if your ex reaches out to you asking why you didn't reach out to them you can just say that they weren't on your list. Good luck with that.
