Last Updated on February 2, 2024 by Ketan

If you’ve fully moved on (or in the process) from your breakup,  getting “How are you?” text from your ex puts you in confusion over what to say. 

A lot of going on in my mind: Why do they ask? Do they check on you?

Or, what if they want you back? 

You can’t decide whether you should ignore their text or just answer it politely.  

Still, it’s just a normal question. But the way your ex asking, ‘How are you doing now (after our breakup)?’, you feel they are up to something. 

Possibly they want to start over. 

Thinking of all the consequences it is better to know how to respond to ‘How are you?’ text from your ex. 


How To Respond When Ex Asks “How Are You”?

At first, it’s just a question ‘How are you?’ that you get from your regular connection. 

Here the difference is, that it’s from your ex, someone you no longer have any connection. 

Generally, there’s nothing much to think about. 

You can just respond with ‘I’m doing good’. That’s it.

Of course, you might be surprised and confused by your get message from your ex. 

But because you’re not sure what’s their intention to connect back, replying with short and simple text is a good option.

Also in the future, you don’t expect to hear anything from them. 

So, if you want to get over an old, failed, and miserable relationship, we have prepared some savage responses that you can give to your ex asking ‘How are you?’ over text. 

1. “Hi, who’s this? I don’t recognize you (still).”

This shows you moved on from your ex and past relationship.

2. “Do you even care? Please don’t try to…”

You’ve no idea what’s their intention with this message after all this time. 

But you just want them to stop trying to fix, reconnect, or whatever they aim to do. 

3. “The person you’re trying to reach has moved on.” 

Your ex should be grateful that you didn’t ignore their text.

It’s not a point of what they ask, but why do they check up on you after so long?
