How To Respond When Your Ex Drunk-Texts You On Valentine’s Day & It’s Dramatic

When in a romantic correspondence that resembles dating but isn't a full-fat relationship, the Valentine's Day text is a “you first” scenario. If you receive an “HVD” text before you send one, congratulations, you've won. It's human to want confirmation from your “person” that they're thinking of you on Feb. 14 before ambushing them with a V-Day message of your own. If your ex is the person texting you, however, then you are not winning at all. As for how to respond when your ex drunk-texts you? I say, you don't respond at all.

If there is even an ounce of remaining baggage or lingering feelings for your ex, the chances you'll leave the text completely unanswered sits down around four percent. It's OK, I lack self-control too. There are important considerations to take into account when it comes to figuring out how you're going to reply to your ex's coy-yet-glib “Happy Vvvvv DAI” text when it arrives in your inbox at 11:00 p.m.

First, are you going to be feeling lonely/single/inadequate on Valentine's Day, too? Are you going to be drunk too? If you've answered yes to either of those, I would pre-formulate some ready-to-go replies, so that if the booze-fueled impulse strikes, you'll send something sensical and mature. (See below.)

More considerations: Is your ex in a new relationship and just looking for attention like a monster? Did you break your ex's heart rather recently, making it important to have some empathy? Below are six responses for a variety of different drunk-texts you might receive from your ex.

1. “No thank you.”

This is the text for when you need to shut down communication with your ex, but can't seem to just ignore the notification. (Probably because you've indulged in some adult beverages this Valentine's Day, too.) It's pretend-polite, but actually very sassy, and your ex would have to be a total dud not to understand that you want to cut communication off for good.

2. “You're drunk, go home.”

Another response for the ex that just won't seem to leave you alone. Ideally, you're only being this mean if this ex seriously wronged you or is a mean drunk. I'd say this is a good response to a text that reads, “Happy f*cking Valentine's Day.”

3. “[Poop emoji]”

Visceral, simple, and to the point, your drunk ex will understand exactly how you feel about them wishing you a happy Valentine's Day. If they follow up, you can always send some Outkast lyrics: “Roses really smell like [poop emoji] [poop emoji].”

4. “It hurts to stay in touch with you, I'm sorry.”

This isn't the coolest response, but I think it's important to tell those exes who won't commit but won't leave you alone exactly what's what. Leave your ex's text on ice overnight, and then reply in the morning with this. I applaud the crystal clear honesty and bravery it takes to say this.

5. “Happy V-Day, [insert nickname here].”

This is for the ex that you sort of want to get back together with, or can flirt with while maintaining your integrity and protecting your heart, because why the eff not?

6. CRICKET THEM!

While this is the hardest move of them all, it's the most important step to take if you really want to get over someone. No matter what your ex texts you, make a point to ignore their text. It's Valentine's Day, you could be on a date for all they know, and it's rude of your ex to act like things are still normal between you two.

Relationships are hard, and endings are the most precarious part. Think carefully about what you want your relationship with your ex to look like in the future before replying to any drunk texts they send you. After all, it's Valentine's Day. They don't need to be hitting you up. And you don't owe them anything — especially not a response.

Where To Find Every Zodiac Sign At The Super Bowl Party

Where To Find Every Zodiac Sign At The Super Bowl Party

NFL LOGO
Adrian Curiel

Aries

Just drunk.

An Aries could give a shit about the game, they’re just in attendance to drink free booze and get hammered. You can find them wherever the bar is, shooting the shit and challenging everyone to chugging contests.

Taurus

Eating the entire dish they originally brought to share.

Possessive Taurus will stay camped out in the kitchen, guarding their Pigs In Blankets, telling everyone they “messed it up” so no one will eat any and they can have it all to themselves.

Gemini

Hitting on everyone and everything.

There’s only one game a Gemini is concerned about on Super Bowl Sunday and that’s their own. A Gemini will be doing their best to take someone home, flirting with whoever will play ball.

Cancer

At home.

A Cancer won’t even bother showing up to the function because they would rather be at home watching the Puppy Bowl with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine.

Leo

Fixating about whether or not they’re the hottest person at the party.

They’ll also be incredibly concerned about whether the jersey they wore is getting them enough attention from their crush or not. If not, will find other ways to catch their eye, such as pretending they know a lot about football or laughing loudly at the bar with someone else to try and make them jealous.

Virgo

Binge-drinking Bud Light all night and complaining about how pointless and stupid football is.

Because, like, what is the point of a bunch of sweaty men running into each other and chasing after a stupid ball and potentially getting life-ruining concussions????? Do not understand, do not get it.

Libra

Only at the party for the commercials. 

Football makes gentle Libra nervous with all the tackling and what not, so they’ll be camped out by the bar or the snacks until it’s a commercial break, their favorite part of the entire evening.

Scorpio

Yelling at the TV every time the ref makes what they consider to be a “shit call.”

Because a Scorpio always knows best and become outraged when the referee makes a call against their team. Because it is fucking bullshit, SUSAN!!!! GOD.

Sagittarius

Just being a goddamn instigator and egging on all the hardcore football fans because they think it’s funny. 

They don’t really think football is all the interesting, so to entertain themselves they’ll try and start shit with everyone else as their own form of amusement. Can’t win ’em all!

Capricorn

Only watching the game for the half-time show.

They’ll be counting down the minutes until they get to see Justin Timberlake return to the Super Bowl stage, Snapchatting the entire performance with generic captions like “incredible performance.”

Aquarius

Complaining that no one else wants to watch the Puppy Bowl.

Because there’s nothing an Aquarius loves more than a good cause, and the Puppy Bowl is as good as one as any. Because all the dogs are up for adoption and it’s just so great!!!!!

Pisces

Crying over a commercial that featured dogs being reunited with their owners.

And, of course, you’ll find Pisces in their truest form: sobbing into a bowl of chips and salsa while some beer company pulls at their heartstrings yet again with an advertisement featuring a golden retriever finally returning home. Just beautiful. TC mark

The Déja Page Pillowcase Is The Dream Lazy Girl Hack For Fighting Acne

The Déja Page Pillowcase Is The Dream Lazy Girl Hack For Fighting Acne

Is it just me, or does literally everything cause acne? From cellphones to keyboards to subway poles and beyond, it seems like no surface is safe to touch for fear of transferring impurities to your skin. Which is why the Déja page pillowcase, which helps ensure your face stays totally fresh and clean for around eight or so hours a day, is such a genius invention. A product that helps you fight acne in your sleep and requires no application or refilling at the pharmacy? Count me in.

Until now, I had never even considered the possibility that my breakouts were caused or worsened by simply laying my face on my pillowcase each time I went to bed. I have a strict nightly skincare regimen that I follow religiously (at its baseline it involves Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser, a prescription topical acne treatment called Epiduo Forte, and Olay’s Active Hydrating Cream) and think of my time spent sleeping as a window for my skin to absorb healing products, regenerate, and become its best self. But evidently, my pillowcase might have been preventing it from effectively doing that.

I wash my sheets about once a month which, to me, seems like a hygienic and appropriate amount. I always shower before bed (except for those drunken nights when it is just not happening) so I figure if I’m getting into my bed squeaky clean each night it pretty much stays that way throughout the month. Sounds logical, right? Wrong!

According to an interview Huffington Post did with Dr. David E. Bank, director and founder of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, pillowcases should be changed every two to three days in order to ensure it remains void of anything that could irritate your skin or clog your pores. “Acne mechanica is any type of acne that is the result of material or objects touching your face. When your pillowcase isn’t laundered or changed regularly, a build-up of dirt and oil from the environment as well as your skin and hair touching the pillow is transferred back to your skin. This can clog pores and cause blemishes,” explains Dr. Bank. So basically, oils are naturally found in skin and hair can still build up, no matter how recently you’ve showered.

Giphy

Which is why the Déja pillowcase is actually brilliant. Made from 100 percent cotton, the pillowcase features eight “pages” of fabric, one of which can be flipped each night to ensure a fresh surface to lay your head on each night. Each time a new fabric leaf is turned, the pages can be secured with a ribbon to ensure they don’t move while you rustle around in your sleep. After eight nights of impurity free sleep, you just have to throw the pillowcase in the washer before it’s ready to use again. Yes, weekly laundry is still more than I’m used to, but if that’s the price for healthier and cleaner skin, it’s one I am more than happy to pay.

Déja

As Déja’s website points out, the aforementioned oils that can build up on a normal pillowcase “makes a great breeding ground for bacteria. Some bacteria are good, but some are acne-causing. You don't want to allow them to multiply on the surface where you will rest your face.” It also notes that dust in the air can settle on pillowcases and anytime someone even brushes up against one dirt could potentially be transferred. In other words, no pillowcase is safe from pimple-prompting contamination!

Déja

At $44, the Déja pillowcase is definitely more expensive than your average run-of-the-mill version. But it’s a one-time investment that pretty much guarantees a lifetime of better skin, so…yeah, I am in.

“Drunk Yoga” Classes Exist & Here’s Why You Should Try One With Your BFF ASAP

Finding your flow in a vinyasa class with wine seems like the perfect kind of paradise, am I right? Well, heaven on Earth truly does exist — and that, my friends, is called drunk yoga. Now that I have your undivided attention, I hate to break it to you, but you have not been living your best life until you've tried this boozy spin on your typical yoga class. I don't know about you, but the namast'ay sippin' rosé all day mentality speaks to my heart on a whole other level. If you want to channel your energy at a fun new hobby, signing up for drunk yoga classes in New York City with your gal pal is the way to go (if you're 21 and up, of course).

Focus the body and mind as you take a sip of merlot before perfecting your downward dog. Naturally, the two words “drunk yoga” are appealing AF to the senses, but don't sip on more than you can handle. Fully immerse yourself in the overall experience as you strip away stresses from the previous day or week. If you're located in or live close to New York City, wander down to the lower east side to yogi Eli Walker's Drunk Yoga class at The Grey Lady and Drexler's, and you won't be disappointed.

Elite Daily spoke with certified yoga instructor and founder of Divine Your Story Eli Walker about her trademarked Drunk Yoga class and the benefits it entails. She tells us,

It's the best kind of girls' outing after work, or the perfect transition into boozy brunch. You'll feel refreshed and in tuned as ever with your best girl pal trying to balance in tree pose right beside you.

If I haven't convinced you quite yet, here are four legitimate reasons why you should call up your BFF ASAP and get your sip on.

1You're Doing Something Healthy And Wise At The Same Time

It's pretty difficult to deny that wine yoga is a total timesaver, and there's nothing like killing two birds with one stone. You're getting a rejuvenating workout in with your main squeeze, while also doing one of the hobbies you love most in this world, getting your wine on.

The best part about this class is that it comes with the combined health benefits of wine and yoga. According to Walker, drinking wine moderately decreases stress, lessens your risk of developing heart disease, and reduces blood pressure. She tells Elite Daily,

Recharging after a stressful day at work is straight perfection with some vinyasa, gossip, and wine to keep you grounded. Sip on, my ladies.

2Friends Who Wine Together, Stay Together

I feel like this gem deserves the number one spot in the Best Friends Handbook. If you're 21 and up, you know it's all too true that rosé always deserves an invite to girls' night. Wine is essential to bonding and catching up with your bestie.

And why is wine, specifically, the alcohol of choice for this drunk yoga class? Walker reveals to Elite Daily,

Those who wine together, stick together, and poppin' bottles feels so much better when you're with your other half. I'm sure she would say the same. For real though, is it wine o'clock yet?!

3Because Everything Feels Pretty Damn Awesome In Yoga Pants

Roll out your mat, breathe in, breathe out, and take a sip.

There's nothing quite like slipping into a cozy AF pair of yoga pants. I'm sure you have several pair that perfectly coordinate with your sports bras, but only one truly fits the bill as being your fave. I'm sorry, but not all yoga pants are created equal.

Everything feels extremely chill and comfy when you're rocking your yoga pants. This especially includes sipping wine with your number one girl.

4A True Friend Never Lets Her BFF Wine Alone, And That Includes Yoga Class

Even if you kind of, sort of, aren't the best at yoga, at least you know you'll be really awesome at another part of this class — and that's the drinking wine and having fun portion. Walker tells us that everyone — yogis and non-yogis — are welcome to join in on the positive community vibes. She says,

Besides, your bestie will not let you whine, wine, or have fun alone. That just wouldn't be right! Looking out for and supporting each other (in addition to having one another's backs at all times) is what best friendships are for, after all.
