There are times when we get an almost desperate feeling to text someone. Yes, you read that right. You're not alone. It could be a friend, a boyfriend, an ex, or just someone you recently met. This feeling will intensify once you start thinking about texting him for real.
There could be various reasons for this. You could be the kind of person who gets easily attached to someone else. Or you could just be honestly missing them so much. Or perhaps it's not the person that you miss- maybe it's the times or the memories.
If you find yourself wanting to text him so badly, read on and find out whether texting him is a good idea or not in your situation.
How Do I Fight The Urge To Text Him?
If you suddenly find yourself with the crippling desire to text someone, you should resist the urge. Stop and ask yourself first why you need to text him. Because if you don't have a legitimate reason, I don't think you should.
Second, ask yourself why you're hesitating. Why are you fighting the urge to text him? Chances are, the answer to that question will completely stop you from texting him.
If it still doesn't work, though, try to keep yourself busy by doing what you love doing. Divert your attention from this intense but short-lived desire to text that someone.
I Want To Text My Ex So Bad
Texting an ex is always a bad idea. He's your ex for a reason, after all. If you suddenly find yourself missing him enough to want to text him, chances are it's not him you're missing. It's your relationship and all the good times you had.
So if you want to tell yourself how it's a bad idea to text your ex, remember why he's your ex in the first place. Remember all the bad times, too.
Ask yourself why you broke up and why you decided not to forgive him and move on? The answers to these questions should discourage you from texting him.
I Want To Text So Bad A Guy I Just Met
If you just met, you should probably wait for him to text you. It's one way of avoiding embarrassment. If you text him and he doesn't respond, it would be both embarrassing as well as disappointing.

If you want to text your new boyfriend, I don't see why not. You're already in a relationship. There is no need for you to second guess yourself about texting him. You have the official right to text him. Just don't text him too much at once. You don't want to scare him away.
I Want To Text Him After A Fight
Texting someone after a fight can be good, depending on the situation. It means that you're willing to fix things with him by lowering your pride enough to text him first. Of course, this doesn't mean that you'll do it all the time.
You should also take into consideration who's fault the fight was in the first place. If it happens more than once, you should probably let him text you first.

Probably not a good idea, even if you want to text him so bad. It may seem like a good idea, but you should remember the reason why you broke up in the first place. Texting him right after a breakup is risky. You're both probably still hurting. It will be too messy.
Sure, you probably miss him, and that is completely normal. But breaking up and then getting back together can get old pretty fast. If you broke it off, you probably didn't do it lightly. So you should stick to your decision.
