It might not be possible for you to stay friends with your ex, especially after you have chosen to move on. One way to handle this is by writing him a letter and tell him you just want to remain friends and you would appreciate that he not text you that often.
Sometimes even when you tell people something, they won’t believe it but when they see it on paper, it just make more sense to them so write him a letter.
People are so overwhelmed with social media today and if you text him and tell him you don’t want him to keep texting you, then he will just keep texting you, if that makes sense.
Once he receives your letter, his actions after that will be key if you can remain friends at all. You might just have to break off the friendship all together if he continues to text you after that.
