By guest - This FML is from back in 2015 but it's good stuff - Argentina - Buenos Aires

Today, I got a text from my ex-boyfriend that said, "I love you." Thinking this meant he'd changed his mind about breaking up with me less than 24 hours before, I replied back excitedly. Turns out that was a text sent last weekend that didn't go through until now. What great timing. FML

So he tells you he loves you and breaks up with you a few days later? Either he was lying about it or something else happened that we don't know about. Either way, it's not a great situation to be in. Stay positive, OP!

Only Chuck Norris or MacGyver could fix this technology fail.

People love, people break up that's how it normally happens

It's also possible to love someone, but not be in love with them. Sometimes people just aren't right for each other. It doesn't mean that they don't love each other or care about one another.

I know it's bad but how do you just stop saying "I love you" to someone? Especially if they say it first

At least you know it's all well an done now and you can move on (or have fun being single). :)

Doesn't that mean he had to hit "try again" or something if it failed before? I feel like he's just trying to get to you.

Sometimes text messages get stuck in the servers and don't get sent through. The other week I received a text from my dad that he sent to me on my birthday 3 months before, but it didn't come through. It doesn't always say if it hasn't sent or been received.

#5 He probably forgot when your birthday was lol.

Nope, he showed me the text on his phone it was sent 3 months prior. It wasn't a happy birthday message it was about the restaurant I wanted to go to. He was flying home from Portugal that day too :p

you weren't going to take him back, were you?

She obviously was. To me it sounds like he didn't break up with her because he's a douchebag but because something wasn't working out... but I wouldn't know.

I'm sure her reply referenced the breakup and possibly getting back together so that wouldn't really work

That sucks OP. Sometimes technology isn't as great as it seems.

dang that sucks well sounds like its time to move on
