Birthday Poems for Ex-Boyfriend: Feel like wishing your ex on his birthday? Think again, because the last thing you want to have is get into a messy spat with him after all you’ve been through. A carefully worded rhyme might be the beginning of a new friendship… just make sure that you don’t sound desperate and he doesn’t misinterpret your greetings as a sign that you are missing him madly and still in love with him. If you must, a text message or a card might be the way to go rather than calling him or meeting him in person. Write a beautiful quote about your relationship. Tag him in a cute Facebook post or sharing sweet image on Pinterest to break the ice. The real challenge lies in making sure that your wishes don’t evoke feelings of anger, hurt, heartbreak and the bitterness of your breakup. Just recall the good times and casually confess that you miss the adorable moments you spent together.
