When a relationship ends, it’s very rarely ever completely over, as this selection of messages – in which exes try and reignite the flames of passion with former squeezes – proves.
However, ex partners from around the world, desperate to rekindle romance with women they’ve dumped or cheated on, were given short shrift in this sassy masterclass rounded up by withmyladies.com.
There’s the woman who diminished her one-time partner with the line: ‘Do you want to be the sun in my life? Good, then stay 92, 935, 700 miles away from me :)’
And then there’s the texter who, after being peppered with a string of messages trying to make contact, simply wrote back ‘unsubscribe’. Ouch.
