Uncle Agony dear,
It’s been five years since I broke up with my ex but I still think about him. I’m dating another man who has asked to marry me for over a year now but I can’t make the mistake of settling down with him when I still love someone else. The problem is that although my ex is also not married, he’s in a serious relationship. Breaking up with him was probably the biggest mistake of my life and I’m thinking of contacting him again. Please advise me.
The presence of over five big telecoms that offer integrated voice, SMS and data solutions has greatly eased the communications platform in Uganda. You can contact your ex using MTN, Airtel, Warid, Orange, UTL, Smile or the new K2. The biggest players even offer revolutionary voice solutions for when you have no airtime but still want to call him. For example, the new MTN Xtra Time.
But if you feel shy about talking to him, like most people do with their exes, you can text him. SMSes these days cost as low as 25/- depending on your service provider. You can also use the internet to email, Facebook, tweet or Whatsapp him. You can even beep him and when he calls back, you pretend you dialed his number by mistake. It’s a common tool that exes worldwide use to stay in touch.
I hope this helps.
