It’s happened to all of us. You’re having a rough time – you’re sad or lonely or drunk or maybe you just watched The Notebook for the fifth time this week and the urge to contact that ex lover of your overwhelms you.
You know it’s not a good idea. You can think of a at least a dozen reasons not to. But they all take a backseat to that infinitely more pressing emotion of longing.
And a few taps later, you’re in business. And immediately regretting it, most of the time.
That’s more or less the story for these folks, anyway.
11. Taking a chance
The ultimately insulting response to pretty much anything.
10. Woke up crying
You really need to give yourself a little breathing room before you do something like that.
9. Months of no communication
People are complicated. Give yourself a moment.
8. He was
It’s not a competition, I tell myself, and yet I still know I’m losing.
7. Go for a drive

6. Just to argue
Now THAT is a confusing message to send.
Maybe not the right sort of circumstance in which to seek such a thing.
4. Find out…
It’s bound to happen sometime.
3. Happy birthday
Why, what happened next?
2. Just to keep in touch
Getting left on read is the true modern tragedy.
1. I was angry
Yeah, you likely dodged a bullet.
It happens to everybody. Just try not to let it happen constantly.
