Text Your Ex Back – An In-Depth Review

text an ex backCreated by relationship expert, Michael Fiore, the text your ex back system uses powerful, carefully crafted, magnetic text messages to get your ex back. Ultimately, this is only a means to an end and the real value here is the comprehensive, in depth course that takes you through the exact steps you need to take in order to see success. In other words, it is a whole lot more than simply sending text messages.

Michael is a world renown relationship expert and has recently been featured on the Rachael Ray show.

So, let's get on with the text your ex back review then, shall we?

What did I think of the text your ex back material?

After listening to the interview mp3, the introductory video, pdf and accompanying mp3s, I was pleasantly surprised. It seems that this course means business (anyway, that was my first impression after completing the first two preliminary modules). I felt at home and comforted – and you will be too if you are hurting over a breakup. You are going to start believing that you'll get through this and that there are better days ahead. You'll realize that there is a very good chance this course is going to help you get your ex back – for real. All you have to do is follow the program.

Okay, good so far...

As someone trying to reunite with my ex, the most comforting thought would be that I was finally doing something constructive to get them back and that things would soon start changing for the better. After the first few modules, you feel hope for the first time in a long time.

One thing I found refreshing about the text your ex back system is that it is not simply a book that you read cover to cover and hopefully take a few ideas from (a lot of the “ex back” courses are nothing more than an e-book). It is a multi-faceted, highly specialized course that is designed to help you through the difficult process of reuniting with your loved one. Using time-released material, work sheets, video, pdf's, and mp3's, you get the feeling that you are actually taking a course as opposed to simply reading a book and not doing any work in the “real world.” Imagine taking a subject in school called, “How to get your ex back” and you'll get some idea of what you are in for. That's how it felt for me.

text your ex back As you are given each module, it builds on the previous one and assumes that you have done the work required to get to that point. If you have not done your homework, or if you have skipped information, you are not getting the full benefit from this system, and your chance of success is going to diminish. Initially, I was taken back by the fact that the material is released one module every second day and that the last module is slated to be released 20 days from the time you purchased the course. After all, I paid for the whole system and I wanted to see it all right there and then. Well, having discovered how the course works, I know why Michael set it up that way. Simply, it is a method that has to be followed to the letter in order to give you the best chance at success. You read, watch the video, do the work sheets, let it all sink in, then you move on. This gives you the opportunity to do something in the module two or three times over if needed. If the modules were delivered all at once, I would have been tempted to skip a lot of things to get to the meat of the course. However, what I discovered is that every module is necessary - you have to do it all. Right from the very first module to the last, every section is a crucial part of the big picture. It is structured very strategically so that you are almost forced to do it the right way.

In the old TXB 1.0 course, the material was delivered all at once and those who failed almost always skipped ahead to the actual texts without doing the work. In this new TXB 2.0, things are spread out over the course of weeks. All you have to do is follow the course as intended – that's it.

 The Comments Section

One resource that I found very useful is the comments section in the member's area. It is very active and I can see how this would be a source of comfort, information, and comradery for many. You really get a sense of how the course is working for others and what everyone is experiencing as it is happening. Keep in mind that these are also people who are doing the same course as you. You'd be surprised at how common your feelings are when you see everyone else experiencing the same thing. For example, there is a cooling off period in the beginning that you have to complete in order to make this work. If you are having a difficult time, you know that everyone else is going through the same thing. Some manage better than others, but there is always help and words of encouragement for those who are struggling.

While there is a comments section on the main page, you will find that each module also has its own specific comments section. That means that you are going to get comments specifically related to just that section. People are going to be discussing things like how they filled in their worksheet or conversations around the pdf's and videos. This kind of interaction is very helpful to everyone. 


As you are taking the course, you are going to get emails from Michael. Not only are they a reminder of what module you are getting that day, but a source of valuable information in their own right.

The Modules

All modules contain video, pdf, and mp3 components.

Module #1 - Introduction

This section welcomes you to the course and shows you how it works and how it is going to help you get your ex back. I found this first module very comforting as things are put in perspective in a way that makes sense and makes you realize that you really do have a chance at fixing things. You find out who the course is for and who it is not for and you read about others who have had great success.

In this introductory module, Michael has you take a huge first step. It is something that is going to last for 30 days and is going to do more to help you get your ex back than just about anything. Many people report feeling liberated when they make the decision to start this.

Module #2 - The Dumper and the Dumped

This section analyzes why the relationship ended and what lead up to it. You are going to really do some soul-searching here, regardless of whether you were the dumped or the dumper. You will look at what happened and the real reason for the split.  

Module #3 - The Big Goal

You can't hit a target if you don't know what it is. What do you really want? Why do you want your ex back? Do you want him/her back for the right reasons? What outcome are you aiming for? Are you sure? All these questions and more are addressed in the third module.

Module #4 - Flight Check

In module 4, you are going to start looking at "you." Your inner (and outer) game is important and the last thing you want to do is start sending texts before you have yourself in order. Self-improvement and having the right mindset before you go back in is the name of the game here.

Module #5 - Text Judo

Text Judo uses your ex's emotions against them to get a positive result. Using your ex's emotions is akin to using an opponent's strength against him in actual Judo. If you take your ex on full force at this stage, you are going to lose, but text Judo uses psychology to turn things in your favor.

Module #6 - Across the Bow

You will start with the first part entitled, "Plan of Attack" and finish up with the second pdf called, "Across the Bow."

In the first part, you are going to go over things that you should have completed in previous modules. This is where you are going to start the actual texts, so it is important to have this up to date. You have to have it together here before you move on. Also in this section, Michael outlines a typical text timeline to use when it comes to sending those crucial first texts.

The second part deals with the actual first texts that you are going to send your ex - these are called across the bow texts. You will be using the G.E.A.R. method here.

Module #7 - Prepping the Soil

Here is where things start getting interesting. The section deals with ways to connect with him/her on an emotional level. Techniques used bypass the logical part of the brain and really work on triggering it's primitive emotional area instead.

You will learn what power words to use in your texts that are going to give you the biggest bang for your buck. Memory stimulation and word pictures are also covered here.

Near the end of this module, you will learn a sneaky trick that will get him/her involved and almost force them to text you back to answer a certain question.

Module #8 - Green-Eyed Monster

So, this module is all about jealousy. As we all know, jealousy can be lethal in a relationship - but what about after the breakup? Michael shares some techniques here that are eye opening. Follow his 3 rules and you are going to be using jealousy as a powerful motivator.

Module #9 - Planting the Seeds

This section centers around intimacy booster texts. Again, you are building on what you have already done in previous modules. You are going to be given two kinds of intimacy booster texts: Everyday and Extra-Strength.

Module #10 - Reaping the Harvest

This module consists of 3 parts: Reaping the harvest, Watering the tree, and Virtual to physical.

In the first pdf, you are going to be introduced to the concept of attraction texting. There is a separate section for women and men as each technique is gender specific.


What I liked

-  Structure. All you have to do is follow the course the way it is intended. That is it. It is designed strategically so you do not cheat and you get the maximum value from it.

– Value. For a one-time payment of $47, you get access to the member's area that contains the material and the opportunity to connect with other people who are going through the same thing. Inexpensive for what you get, to be sure.

- The entire course is transcribed into mp3 audio – in other words, everything in the pdf's. This means that you can load it on your ipod and listen to it whenever you want. Take it with you walking or listen to it in the car while commuting to work. Do this, and you are going to further reinforce the material you get.

Room for improvement

- One thing that could be improved is the comment section. Because it is so busy, comments are coming on the board every few minutes it seems. That means that things fall off onto sub pages quickly. You can still read the comments, but you may lose track of what page it is on if you want to come back. Maybe a forum format might be better?

- You are offered the one-time bonuses before you checkout and you do not see them again. I imagine some people might regret not buying the bonuses when they see the quality of the course. Unfortunately, it seems that you do not have an opportunity to get your hands on these again. At least, not that I have seen.

Just want to add something here. There was one negative that I took off the list - and it was that I did not receive all the course at once. However, it was only an initial concern and now is probably more of a positive. As I mentioned, the fact that you don't get all the modules right away admittedly turned me off in the beginning, but once I saw how things are structured, I understood why it is done the way it is. Yeah, I eventually got everything I paid for.

Reality Check

Unfortunately, a very small percentage of people will not be able to do what the course requires - and hence, will not see the results they hope for. If you need an instant solution, your emotions have taken over, and you are in an extremely volatile state, you may not have the patience to do this course over 20 or 30 days. It is not going to provide you with the instant relief you are looking for - and to be honest, I don't know what will. However, you will certainly feel a newly found calm and sense of hope once you start. That's what I personally found.

I also want to mention that getting your ex back is not a sure thing - no matter what course of action you take. In my opinion, no one can promise that. Your relationship may be too far gone. Your ex may be in love with someone else. Maybe things were said and done that simply cannot be undone. Everyone is different and every situation is different - sometimes you just have to move on.

This course is also not a magic pill. You are going to have to put in the work or you aren't going to see results. Buying the package is one thing - doing what it needed is another.

The Bottom Line

In short, I like this course. It is a refreshing change from all the usual advice out there. It appears to be working for a lot of people and they seem genuinely happy that things are finally happening. I know this from reading a lot of the real-time comments in the members area. I think the value for your money is better than average and that Michael's style and the structure of the course really gets to the heart of the matter and offers a real solution – and that solution's single purpose is to get your ex back – end of story. I am confident that any person, no matter who you are or how bad your situation is, (with a few extreme exceptions) could hop aboard and see great success with this system as long as you did it by the letter. Having said that, the structure pretty much guarantees that you have to do it as it was meant to be done, and that is a plus.

5/5 Stars 5-Star Rating

Taking everything into account, I am going to give this a top rating of 5 stars. It really does seem to be the best system out there to get your ex back.

I was then taken to another upgrade opportunity for enhanced training. I declined that simply because this is a review for the base product. However, you should know that the two upgrades are not that expensive and certainly you are going to get a lot for your money here based on what I have seen with the quality of the course and the way Michael over-delivers.

The next screen was the confirmation screen. It is vitally important that you click on the button that says COMPLETE YOUR ORDER.
