I usually get back

"ok. thanks."

So when she texts me - I send the exact same back - petty I know, but one day a message shall be had.

Big thing for me? Don't bite.

This was a hard one for me to learn, but if they say something that's clearly meant to wind you up then don't react. If they know they can push your buttons then they'll do it as much as they can. Lovely people as they are - we're separated from them for a reason.

My other recommendation is stop talking to them directly. All my communication with my ex I now do by text. This works two ways - I've got a written log of all our conversations (she can't make up what's been said), plus when she does put something to intentionally p*ss me off I have the chance to curse, swear and kick a chair before cooling off and replying.

I've got three kids and it's surprisingly easy to organise things through the written word.
