30 Things To Do Right Now That Are Way More Productive Than Texting Your Ex


1. Get your adorable ass on Bumble and shoot everyone you find moderately sexy a “hii” (the double “i” is key—very flirty). You’ll be surprised what some dick attention will do for your breakup morale.

2. Take a boxing class, and pretend the punching bag is his (already incredibly fragile) masculinity. ;)

3. Or just go to the gym for literally as long as you want. Even if you’re there for literally 10 minutes. Because that’s liiiiiterally so much more productive than texting his sorry ass.

4. Write down all the intolerable things about him that made you wish you were single. And then #blessup when you remember that you, my kween, ARE SINGLE.

5. Send the group chat the following text: “SOS KINDA WANNA TEXT ______ EVERYONE PLEASE REMIND ME WHY HE IS SATAN.”

6. Read an article on things to do instead of texting your ex.
