Women are sharing texts they've sent to exes and the replies are so brutal
26 March 2019, 17:46
Because it never quite goes down like it does in our favourite rom-coms.
Relationships are very, very hard, but relationships in 2019? Whew, just give up now. It's over. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have now infiltrated dating and it's making people bolder than ever.
9 body language clues that prove someone is interested in you
Arguments over the phone are old news, it's all over WhatsApp now, and they can often end with you getting blocked, or worse… your message stays on "read" with no reply. Yep, we all know the frustrating feeling of sending a risky 2,000 word essay and getting absolutely nothing back but some blue ticks staring back at us.
Well, enter sex and relationship blogger Dami Olonisakin, who asked her female Twitter followers to reveal heartfelt messages they'd sent to men and got absolutely nothing back.
Naturally, she was inundated with examples. And the results? Whew, they're SO savage.
i dont know if you still remember but this is the same guy I was fussing over about a month ago pic.twitter.com/KxyCiSXKXt— anaise🇬🇶 (@frenchcoca) March 23, 2019
The emotion just jumped out of some of them.
Was talking to this guy for 4 months, during that time he told me not to talk to anyone else. While I was doing a night shift, he messaged me to let me know that he’s now got a girlfriend and it’s getting serious. Wrote on notes, sent on snap pic.twitter.com/3QNXvu5M7Y— 079 me (@rar3diamond_) March 24, 2019
Hey Ladies.. have you ever poured out your heart to a guy in the past and thought.. "omg I can't believe I sent this"? I have too!— #TheBigOBook (@Oloni) March 23, 2019
Respond to this tweet by digging out past old heart felt messages to a love interest.

I decided to cut it off and express for the first time how I felt, in one go.” pic.twitter.com/SrGr5Iyf95— #TheBigOBook (@Oloni) March 24, 2019
Meanwhile, other responses were just cold – c'mon just an "ok"?!?!?!
Although rehashing all your feelings and getting a one-word response is exhausting, Oloni insists it's perfectly "healthy" to get things off your chest.
"Opening up about how you feel to someone you’ve been romantic/sexual with is normal," she told Metro.co.uk. "We grow and learn over time who to display those feelings to. So yeah it’s cringey, but sometimes it can be necessary."
Vent away ladies!
