But Sean Drohan, a Princeton graduate, has created a place to house that emotional text you and I want so badly to send, and it's sure to give you all the feels.
After conceptualizing the simple idea during lunch with a friend, the 24-year-old turned to Google spreadsheets to create “things i wanna text my ex.”The spreadsheet is literally meant to be a place for you to write out the text you're too afraid to send your ex, according to Refinery29. Drohan's creation is accessible to anyone with the link.
You write it there, and then people can comment on them in the next columns. He tells Refinery29, “There's plenty I would like to say to my exes (and too much I've already said).
People enjoy anonymous opportunities to cry into the ether.
There's kind of this unanswered question of to whom we say these things and why, but that's what's interesting.”Right now, the spreadsheet is at 190 plus lines of texts and counting.
Though it began as a personal experiment of sorts, Drohan tells Refinery29 he's taken aback at how receptive people have been of his little project and how quickly the spreadsheet is filling up with texts that've probably been pent up for some time.“People really took it as an opportunity to speak some truth,” Drohan says.
