Let the past be the past, as we’ve often heard. But sometimes there is nothing wrong with turning over a new leaf. Especially if that leaf is a metaphorically platonic leaf. While there is something to be said for giving your past flame their own space, as you both move on with your lives, there is no denying that you shared something special. And sometimes, some things don’t just fade away. Sometimes, listening to a song or watching a familiar movie can kindle up so many memories and you wonder what they’re upto or you just want to wish them well. So maybe a blooming friendship has not replaced an intense relationship, but that does not mean that you’ve forgotten about each other. If anything, you wish them a happy life ahead, without expectations or disparaging words. Maybe you’re hesitant on how to take the first step, or how to not come across badly on this occasion of their birthday. So here’s a few ways of wishing your ex-boyfriend a very Happy Birthday from your side, because you actually mean it!
