Who is Michael Fiore?
There has been a lot of stuff written about Text Your Ex Back author Michael Fiore, so we won’t spend a lot of time listing all of his accomplishments on here, other than to say that he is a relationship expert and texting genius. He has appeared on talk shows such as Rachael Ray and has been referred to as “the man with the magic thumbs”, “the king of romantic texting”, and even as a “texting ninja”.
We’ve had nothing but positive experiences dealing with Mike and if you’d like to learn more about him, including bio and product information, we recommend visiting http://michaelfiore.org.
What Is Text Your Ex Back?
Michael Fiore’s Text Your Ex Back is a PDF guide and multimedia texting system designed to help you get your ex back after a breakup by sending carefully crafted text messages from your average cell phone. In the book, Michael describes it like this:
” In this program I’m going to lay out a step-by-step process that will show you how to use simple text messages from your cell phone to rekindle the romance with your ex, open him or her up to the idea of being with you again, and get things off on the right foot as you start dating each other.”
It should be noted that Mike’s program isn’t just a big list of text message examples. It’s much more than that.
It helps you figure out why the breakup occurred, teaches you how to identify points of emotional connection, infuses a vast knowledge of human psychology into powerful texting formulas, provides you with a vast array of text your ex back examples, and offers some amazing tips for keeping the attraction going after you get back together.
Text Your Ex Back is an online program and all of the content is provided through a private member’s area via audio, video, and PDF files. It is NOT a book that can be purchased at stores like Barnes and Noble , Amazon, or through the Kindle marketplace. Since everything is provided online, it can be accessed immediately after purchase and will work from any device that has internet access, is capable of opening PDF ebook files, and has video viewing capabilities. Examples of these types of devices include laptop and desktop computers, iPhones and other smart phones, iPads, Kindle, Google Nexus, etc.
In version 2.0, Michael Fiore began drip feeding the content to members over time. This was done for a very specific reason.
Mike found most people who weren’t having success with the system weren’t following it the way it was intended. They were simply skipping all the prep work, going straight for the text examples, blasting them out with no rhyme or reason, and then wondering why they weren’t getting positive results. Drip feeding the content helped solve this problem and resulted in greater success for members across the board.
The content for Text Your Ex Back 2.0 is provided inside 11 different modules that each contain audio, video, and PDF files. Take a look at the screenshot below from inside the member’s area that shows how this is set up.
Having the different formats is great because you can login and view everything directly online. You don't have to download Text Your Ex Back like you did in previous versions.
However, if it fits your lifestyle, you may still prefer to download the audio files to your iPod and listen to them while driving or working out or print out the PDF files, put them in a binder, and create your own “hard copy” version if you’re still the “pen and ink” type.
Here’s a very brief breakdown of what you’ll learn in each module.
Module 1 - The Introduction
Inside Module 1, you’ll read some Text Your Ex Back customer reviews and testimonials and will be introduced to Michael Fiore. You’ll learn how the program will help you, who it’s for (people who truly love, miss, and appreciate their ex) and who it’s not for (people who want their ex back for their own vanity and ego), and will be introduced to Mike’s 30 day “limited contact” rule. It’s actually called a no contact rule in the book, but we’ve used the word “limited” to include people who have to be in some sort of contact with an ex due to work, kids, mutual friends, etc.
Module 2 – The Dumper And The Dumped
In Module 2, Mike helps you figure out why the breakup actually occurred. Sometimes the reason for a breakup is pretty simple (e.g. cheating). Other times it’s a lot harder to figure out exactly what went wrong (e.g., the “It’s not you, it’s me” excuse).
Whether you got dumped or whether you dumped your ex and then realized you made a mistake, Mike helps you understand what went wrong so you can take the right course of action in your texting to get your ex back. Let’s face it, if you don’t have a good idea of where the relationship went wrong, then you don’t stand a chance of making it work the second go around.
Module 3 – The Big Goal
Module 3 is all about your big goal. That is, what you ultimately want to accomplish by going through the Text Your Ex Back PDF system. As Michael says:
”You can’t hit the target until you paint it on the wall.”
Mike asks you 3 questions that will help you visualize exactly what you want your relationship with your ex to be like and how you’re going to get there.
Module 4 – Flight Check
In this Module, Michael Fiore gives you a final “flight check” before you start texting your ex. Why a flight check? Mike says:
"Because it’s a tad challenging to refuel or inflate your tires once you’re in the air.
In exactly the same way, it’s pretty hard to keep a cool head during the texting process if you’re full of resentment, nostalgia, self-doubt, selfloathing, and/or any of the other toxic crap that a) probably caused your breakup in the first place, and b) will have you putting your foot in your mouth before you can say “oral pedicure,” and c) just makes you feel like you’re living in a dumpster of existential doom. This chapter will help you get out of the dumpster.”
You’ll learn the 5 rules you MUST have embedded in your mind before you ever send your first text message.
Module 5 – Text Judo
In Module 5, you get introduced to the concept of “text judo”. Mike explains what it is, why it works, and the principles that make it such a powerful texting technique. Pay attention here as text judo is the cornerstone of the Text Your Ex Back Michael Fiore system.
In this module, Michael also lays out a table with a 6 phase approach to using text judo to get your ex back and the text types you’ll want to use during each phase. The module ends with 3 questions that will help you prep the memories, experiences, and emotions that will be the centerpiece of your texts.
Module 6 – Across The Bow Texts
Module 6 is when you start getting into the different text your ex back texts contained in the program. It introduces you to Michael Fiore’s G.E.A.R. principle. This stands for Gently Establish Affirmative Rapport, and the idea is to “gear” up for the conversations to come. The way you’ll do this is by using across the bow texts.
”An Across the Bow text is a shot in the dark. It’s that first text you send when you haven’t talked to or seen your ex in a while, and is designed to let them know that you’re thinking about them, that you don’t have any negative feelings towards them, and that you’re not horribly, horribly messed up over the breakup (even if you are).”
He then goes on to say:
“The idea is to inspire conversation, not just lob texts like a medieval siege army trying to take a castle by force.
Although they would be more likely to lob plague-infested corpses or flaming bales of straw. Nobody ever took a castle with text messages.) Your texts should ideally give your ex a way to respond.
Put it all together, and you get the BIG IDEA behind Across the Bow texts: to create a subtle framework where your ex comes to the conclusion seemingly on his or her own that you should continue the dialogue, first over text, then in person, and then in bed. (Whoops! Did I say that?)”
These are the texts you’ll use to open the lines of communication once you’ve been out of touch with your ex for a while. Michael will lay out the rules for using across the bow texts, show you how and how NOT to use them, warn you about using what he calls “nothing texts”, and provide you with tips on how to respond if your ex replies back positively, negatively, neutral, or not at all.
And of course he’ll give you a ton of great examples and texting formulas to help you craft the perfect across the bow text to send to your ex. With the release of Text Your Ex Back 2.0, there is now an additional Plan of Attack PDF included in this module that lays out a typical texting sequence you might have with your ex and helps clarify the “logistics” of Michael’s texting system. For example, which texts to send, how many, how often, in what order, and other similar details.
Module 7 – Prepping The Soil
In Module 7 of the Text Your Ex Back PDF, Michael Fiore introduces you to best of the relationship texts and teaches you how to use emotional language and detail to make positive past experiences with your ex feel as real as possible in his or her mind.
He reveals several different techniques for creating best of the relationship texts which include power words, memory stimulation, and word pictures. Mike also teaches you a sneaky trick called the “small ask” and once again provides plenty of examples. Really cool stuff!
Module 8 – The Green Eyed Monster
Green eyed monsters (GEMS) can be one of the most powerful text your ex back examples, but they can also be super easy to mess up. Pay close attention to how Michael tells you to pull these off. You’ll learn how to use jealousy and “social proof” in a positive way to create attraction with your ex
Module 9 – Planting The Seeds
Module 9 of the Text Your Ex Back ebook introduces you to intimacy booster texts which use the “power of memory recall to bring up strong, positive, almost irresistible emotions in your ex.” These work particularly well if your ex is going through a hard time in their life. Michael shows you how to generate feelings of closeness with your ex even if you're miles away.
Module 10 – Reaping The Harvest
Module 10 is actually a collection of 3 different PDF files. First, you’ll learn about emotional honesty texts which are all about laying everything out on the table. Michael Fiore explains:
”OK, so far we’ve talked about how to “open the door” to a conversation with your ex by using Across the Bow texts. . . learned how to use the power word “remember” to direct your ex’s mind to the good times in your relationship (and plant the seed of more good times happening in the future). . . used Intimacy Booster texts to remind your ex that you know them better than anyone and are in their corner. . . and even resorted to Green-Eyed Monster texts to awaken the possessive beast in your ex’s bosom. (Ahh, bosom.)
All of this stuff works REALLY well. . . but playtime is over.
Time to fish or cut bait. Sink or swim. Bowl a strike or eat nachos and cry. Sometimes you just have to cut past the bullshit and tell your ex how you really feel. And that time is now.”
By this point in the program, you should be getting close to getting your ex back. Michael will teach you things like compliment texts, appreciation texts, “how I feel” texts, and “what I miss” texts that can really help seal the emotional connection.
In the second PDF of this module, you’ll learn about attraction texts! These are things like curiosity texts and the sexy story text that build attraction and help get your partner “excited”. Fun, flirty, a little bit dirty. Awesome!
Attraction texts are one of our favorite text your ex back examples, but they come toward the end of the program because obviously you don’t want to send these right out of the gate when you just broke up and the thought of you makes your ex cringe like you’re some kind of diseased zombie.
In the last PDF of this module, Michael Fiore teaches you how to take things from a virtual to a physical level and how to actually meet up with your ex. Through things like nice time texts, sensory expander texts, favorite part texts, and the tag along text, you’ll learn how to keep things rolling so your ex wants to keep seeing you after your first date.
Module 11 – Texting Steady
In the final module of Michael Fiore’s Text Your Ex Back, you’ll get some closing thoughts and ideas on where to go from here to have the lasting relationship you want. The next part of this Text Your Ex Back review will discuss a few of the other things you should know about the Michael Fiore Text Your Ex Back program and what makes it a unique and special system for getting your ex back.
One of the biggest additions to Text Your Ex Back 2.0 is the incorporation of social features. Inside the member’s area, you’ll find what looks similar to a Facebook wall. You can use this “comments feature” to interact with other members, ask questions, get help, seek advice, share text examples, vent, explain your ex’s “crazy” behavior, or anything else that might help ease the pain of the breakup and help you be successful using the program.
These social features and the ability to interact with other people going through the exact same thing you are who also have an understanding of Mike’s texting system is a huge benefit. You won’t be left trying to figure things out on your own. That kind of support when you’re trying to mend a relationship is priceless. And since it’s all inside a private member’s area, you don’t have to worry about all the drama that can occur if your friends, family, or ex finds out your true feelings.
Throughout the Text Your Ex Back guide, Michael Fiore will give you a few exercises to complete. We’re not talking physical exercises like working out or running a marathon. Instead, we’re talking about worksheets that generally consist of a few questions.
These exercises help you brainstorm ideas, get a sense of where you truly stand with your ex, assess your level of emotional dependence, and form the foundation for the memories and positive experiences that will form the basis for many of your texts. Don’t skip these, ok?
Text Your Ex Back Examples
As we’ve already mentioned, there are many different examples of each kind of text spread throughout the Text Your Ex Back PDF’s. Using Michael’s texting formulas and examples, you’ll be able to quickly come up with great texts that are specific to your own relationship. It’s entirely possible to copy and paste Michael’s examples, but we feel you’ll get the best results if you remain flexible and adjust these texts to your own relationship and your own texting style.
When you buy Text Your Ex Back, there will also be a few bonuses included with your purchase. The first is a 100 Ready-To-Use Texts PDF. In this document, Michael provides you with 100 ready to use texts that cover all the different text types taught in the program. They are provided in a “template” format, so you literally just need to fill in the blanks to make them work for your own relationship. Easy peasy!
The next couple of bonuses are interviews Mike does with Dr. Jan Hall and Dr. Fred Luskin. One covers the psychology of cheating and the other relates to forgiveness and how to cope with both forgiving yourself and forgiving your ex so you can create the relationship you want.
Lastly, you’ll also receive Mike’s Facebook Romance Secrets which teaches you how to use Facebook and other social media sites to build romance and strengthen your relationship once you’ve reunited with your ex.
Does Text Your Ex Back Work?
So this is the million dollar question, "Does Text Your Ex Back really work?" Relationship coach, Derek Maak, who has followed the program closely looked at this question and created this video where he talks about Text Your Ex Back customer reviews and testimonials. There's some good stuff in there.
”Am I GUARANTEEING that you’ll be able to get your ex back using this guide? Nope. It’s totally possible that after reading through this material and starting to put it into action you’ll decide you don’t WANT to be with your ex anymore, and that the sneaky tricks and relationship hacks I teach you here will be better used with someone else in the future.
But what I WILL guarantee is that after you go through this training you’ll have a deeper understanding of why your relationship ended, how the romantic and sexual mind of your ex actually works, and how you can consciously create the relationship you’ve always dreamt of by “tuning” the way you think about love, sex, and romance, all while tapping out a few simple messages with your thumbs.”
Michael Fiore's Text Your Ex Back PDF isn't based on theory. It's based on sound, tried and tested principles that give you a real opportunity to get your ex back after a breakup. The only real way to know if it will work for you is to try it. Michael Fiore wants to help as many people as possible and he offers a 60-day no questions asked, money back guarantee in case you aren't happy with your purchase or find that it isn't a good fit for you.
