Other people may find it weird and bizarre to greet their former partner a happy birthday.
Nevertheless, breaking up is not the end of a relationship.
I’m sure that the memories and experiences shared are not all bad.
There are some lovely and enriching ones that had helped you grow as a person.
So on his special day, here’s a list of birthday greetings you can send his way.
He may not be that special to you now, but he was once one.
We have created some of the best moments together. Even though it was years ago, I still kept them with me. Thank you for those moments and happy birthday.
We may have gone different paths, but I would like you to remember that you are special to me and a lot of people who love you. Happy birthday.
If I look back at my crazy phase in my life, I feel so grateful that you were there, being crazy with me. At least, I am not alone. Happy birthday, my ex wing-man!
Before we were even lovers, we have been a witness to each other’s different life stages. From grade school drama to finally getting that college diploma. From office rookie to being head of a department. And we will continue supporting each other despite everything. Happy Birthday.
We might not be meant to be together as lovers, but I know in my heart that we are still meant to be friends. Happy birthday and enjoy pal.
Meeting you is by chance but staying your friend in spite of what happened, is the best choice I had ever made. I hope I made you feel the same way. Happy birthday.
A remarkable day ahead for the best ex-boyfriend in the world. You still bring joy and laughter when my days are gloomy. Happy birthday to you.
Hey Fella! You might not be my boyfriend now, but you still owe me a drink. Let’s drink to staying friends. Happiest birthday to the man of the hour.
Others might consider you as peculiar. Or they might think you’re odd. I don’t mind because you are the most supportive ex-boyfriend ever. Happy birthday, dude.
Getting over you may be the hardest thing I had ever done. But even if we had put a period in that part of our lives, I am still grateful to you. Happy birthday.
Saying goodbye to a romantic relationship doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to a platonic relationship. I don’t want to waste the relationship that we had built over the years. I’m still here. Happy birthday.
Hey, I saw you the other day. I’m pleased that you seemed to be doing fine. Stay healthy and positive. Let’s catch up soon. Happy birthday.
Seeing you last week made me realized how much I missed you. And that I still want you in my life even only as a friend. Happy birthday, future friend.
I saw you with your new girl. She’s a real catch. Be sure to buy her a helmet to put on her head. We don’t want her bumping her pretty head and realize that she is better off without you. Just kidding! Happy birthday, lucky guy!
I don’t know why they would say that ex-lovers can’t be friends. It’s a great advantage by the way, ‘coz you have someone to screen your future suitors and possibly prevent heartaches. Happy birthday, my ex but a current advisor.
I know we kept some things hanging when we broke up. Not finding any resolutions on some of the conflicts we had. But I hope we just keep it behind us now and move forward. Happy birthday and I wish you well.
Hey, you! My phone calendar reminded me that it’s your birthday today. So here I am, sending you this awkward but sincere greeting. Happy birthday! I’ll be expecting the same awkward greeting on my birthday.
They said the first thing you should do after a breakup is to get rid of all the stuff that reminds you of him. So on your birthday, I will be sending you a big box of all those things plus my stupid thumping heart. Happy birthday!
I am very meticulous with boyfriends. I only have a handful of them. Most of them are not my friends now. Except you. Happy birthday and thank you for staying in my life.
May you have a jubilant birthday because you are deserving of joy in your life. You are the most self-sacrificing and considerate ex-boyfriend that I have. Why did I ever break up with you? Happy birthday.
I am so fortunate to have a reliable friend in you. Despite our breakup, you have continually encouraged me in any undertakings I have made. Happy birthday, my buddy!
You are the core reason why I was able to exceed all the trials that I encountered in my teenage years. Our puppy love may have not survived the test of time, but our friendship will. Happiest birthday, first love.
It is scarce to find true friends, but it is next to impossible to find ex-boyfriends that you consider your friend. You are a rare find. Happy birthday!
Since you left, it has never been the same. I sure miss having a thoughtful ex-boyfriend who checks up on me from time to time. Happiest birthday, sweetest ex-boyfriend!
You had left a substantial mark in my life. Our relationship may only be short-lived but your influence has been imprinted in my soul for eternity. Happy birthday.
No matter how life may alter me as a person, your influence on my personal development will remain the most significant. You may be my ex-boyfriend but you are also my mentor. Happy birthday.
My existence in your life is permanent. You better orient your future girlfriends that I am here whether they like it or not. I will be your protector for future heartbreaks. Happy birthday from your sweet but weird ex-girlfriend!
Life may bring us in opposite directions and we may lose contact with each other, but I will always have space in my heart for you. It may not be a space for a boyfriend but space just the same. Happy birthday!
Missing you is tough for me but I know you are pleased that you are closer to realizing your life’s dream. I will be the happiest ex-girlfriend in the world when that happens. Best of luck and happy birthday!
You would always say that having regrets are useless. It’s a waste of time sulking about the past. But I deeply regret letting you go and I will be sulking the rest of my life because of that. Happy birthday, my greatest regret.
As your birthday draw near, I wish you will take the time to look after your welfare. May it be mentally, physically or emotional well-being. I am no longer there to nag you about it. But I want you to have a happy healthy birthday.
I would never get used to the notion of not seeing you around. I miss you yesterday and the previous days and months. I especially miss you today. Happy birthday.
I believe in fate. It was fate that brought us together before. Though we need to be in separate ways, I still believe that it will be fate that will bring us together in the future. Happy birthday! Keep believing.
Your life is quieter now, without me. No early nagging calls, rousing you up while you were still asleep. No clingy girlfriend, asking your whereabouts all the time. But I know you miss me, ex-boyfriend. So I will just greet you a joyful birthday and be on my way.
So I have been debating with myself for quite some time now if I should send you this message or not. But I guess, there’s nothing wrong if an ex-girlfriend greets her ex-boyfriend on his natal day, right? Here you go. Happy birthday!
Whatever pain and agony we may share in the past, should stay in the past. I am all for closing all the wounds and just being happy for each other. Let’s start it with a happy birthday to you.
I know it is so difficult to find a new girlfriend when your ex is the most caring, loving, gorgeous, and not to mention, the most humble person you know. I’m sorry about that. Happy birthday from your almost perfect ex-girlfriend.
Can you tell me one thing? How where you able to get over me so quickly? ‘Coz I sure need some pointers to be able to get over you. For now, I will just leave you this happy birthday message.
We used to spend our birthdays together. It is kind of weird not seeing you today but a proper birthday greeting is in order. Happy birthday, ex-lover.
The past is where we get wisdom. Wisdom to face the present and prepare for the future. I believe, we both have prepared each other for our future partners. Happy birthday, ex-partner.
We may have moved on and closed that chapter of life, but it doesn’t mean we can’t be civil anymore. I would still want to greet you on your natal day. And I would still expect a birthday gift from you on mine. Happy birthday!
When we were younger, we thought the only things that matter is our love for each other. Maybe that is why our relationship didn’t endure. But it is needless to say, it was necessary for us to grow. Happy birthday.
My supportive ex-boyfriend, happy birthday. Thank you for extending your support to me even if your current girlfriend is annoyed about it. But tell her not to worry. I am here as a friend only. A friend to you and her, if she wants.
Hey, ex-lover! I heard it’s your birthday again. Since I am not your girlfriend anymore, a mandatory birthday gift is out of the picture. But you still get the pleasure of receiving this birthday message from me. Happy birthday!
My dear ex-boyfriend, happy birthday. One of the main reasons for our breakup is personal growth. I am pleased with the development I have seen in you. Keep it up!
When we’re together, you always bring the best in me. You were my number one cheerer and applauder. I miss having that kind of support. Happy birthday.
It’s been so long since we’ve talked. Just dropping this message on your special day to remind you I’m still here as your trusted friend. Happy birthday.
The true test of moving on is that you can greet your ex-boyfriend on his birthday sincerely. So here goes, I sincerely wish you a happy birthday.
We may have said some painful words that we don’t truly mean. Our feelings were wounded and needed time to heal. Although our hearts are still on the road to recovery, I want you to know that I hope you got to celebrate your birthday. Happy birthday.
In the ruins of a romantic relationship, we can salvage the foundation which is friendship. I know it will not be easy but let this be the first step in that direction. Happy birthday.
I know we had mutually decided to part ways. I respect our decision. But before we take a hiatus on our communication, I want to send this greeting as a formal farewell. Happy birthday and goodbye to you.
Have you ever been to a place that suddenly reminds you of me? Yesterday, I passed by our favorite pizza place and felt a twinge in my heart. Happy birthday. Let’s have pizza soon for old time’s sake.
Wishing you happiness on your birthday two years ago would make me sound like a hypocrite. But I guess, I had moved on and matured now. Happy birthday and I do wish you more happiness.
Our common friend said you are doing fine. I am honestly glad that you are in a good place. Continue to motivate yourself in reaching your goals. I still believe you can do it. Happy birthday.
Getting out of a usual routine is so difficult. I am used to depending on you in a lot of things. Maybe, it is about time I learn to stand on my own. Thank you for the years with you. Happy birthday.
When I think of you now, I only remember all the good times. No more hatred and lingering aggravation of the things that had happened. I can greet you with a cheerful birthday with a smile.
Happy birthday to my best ex-boyfriend. Technically, you are my only ex-boyfriend, but you are indeed the best. I appreciate your continued friendship and guidance. Thank you.
You have taught me so much about the relationship. How it can make and break you as a person. I’m glad we stepped back when we felt that it would break us eventually. Happy birthday and see you around.
Sometimes I wonder, what if we hold on and didn’t break up. What if we had the patience to work things out? Those are just some musings I had because I miss you on your birthday. I do hope you had a great birthday.
Hello, ex-boyfriend! It’s your birthday in case you don’t remember since you were always preoccupied with work. Let’s double date sometime, so I can get to know your girlfriend and you can meet my boyfriend. That would be fun. Don’t you think?
I hope this will not ruin your birthday, but I need to get something from you. You brought it with you, the day you packed your bags and moved out. Please return my bleeding heart. You still know my address, right? Happy birthday, heartbreaker!
So many things had been said and done. Accusations were thrown in the air. It was an ugly end of a beautiful relationship. But now that the dust has settled, I have no regrets of being part of your life. Happy birthday, my crazy ex-boyfriend.
If I were to select a new girlfriend for you, I would choose the one who is my total opposite. Someone prim and proper. Someone who would take good care of you. Happy birthday.
Happy birthday, my handsome ex-boyfriend. I can finally sleep peacefully at night. I used to be crazy jealous with all those girls smitten by your charm. It’s best we just be friends for the sake of my sanity.
Although, I am happy with our situation now. There are still instances where I would miss the feeling of being pampered by a boyfriend. Even the lame holding of hands. But I will not miss saying Happy birthday to you.
Transmitting a message to you. A signal of love and gratitude for the years shared and cherished. I may not be calling you boyfriend now, but you remain my boy friend forever. Happy birthday.
A breakup means losing a person that meant a lot to you. You may have lost me as your girlfriend. But you have gained a real friend. Happy birthday. Keep in touch.
If I could write a book about Ex-boyfriends, it would be a bestseller. Don’t worry, I will edit you out because you are my favorite and you treat to dinner. Happy birthday, your manipulating ex-girlfriend.
Why songs about ex-boyfriends usually entail bad experiences and hardships? If I were to write a song about you and my experience, it will still be a love song. Happy birthday, my favored ex-boyfriend.
If someone would ask me what the stupidest thing is I did in my whole existence, I would say letting you go. The second stupidest thing is telling you about it. So just scratch that first 2 sentences. What I meant to say was Happy birthday.
I’ve been thinking of reasons to reach out to you. I don’t want to intrude and disrupt what you have now. Glad that today came, so I have a valid reason to send you this greeting and hope you well. Happy birthday.
Life is full of surprises. There are good ones and not so good ones. You are one of the good surprises. Maybe, in the top 3. Happy birthday.
People come and go in our daily lives. Some stay longer than others. Some leave more significant marks than others. Some, you love more than others. Happy birthday, ex-boyfriend. I wish you could have stayed longer.
We may not share the same kind of love like before, but I still love you just the same. Happy birthday. May you this year be your year.

Time is ticking and would not stop for anyone. My wish is for you to make striking memories with your treasured time, like the memories I have when we were sweethearts. Happy birthday.

The possibility of having your ex-boyfriend linger in your life may be slim. Survey says it is ninety-nine point nine percent, impossible. I am pleasantly glad you are in a minority bracket. Happy birthday!
It is so easy for other people to give relationship advice when they don’t exactly feel how you feel. How easy for them to say, wipe out all traces of you in your being. I could never do that and I don’t want to. Happy birthday.

The probability of us getting back together is slim. But there’s a high probability of you staying in my life as my confidant. Do you agree? Happy birthday, birthday boy!
I missed those cheeky smiles of yours. I missed your irritating laugh. I missed the fact that you are always late on our dates. Now that we broke up, why do I miss those annoying things the most? Beats me! Happy birthday, annoying guy.
I thought I would be crazy jealous when I see you with your new girl. Turns out, I was just mighty fine. Happy for you. Happy birthday.
Witnessing your progress professionally is amazing. I know that you have that potential ever since. Potential to be great in everything you do. You make me a proud ex-girlfriend. Happy birthday.
The love that we left behind was not wasted. That love is an instrument for our growth and maturity when it comes to dealing with relationships. Happy birthday, my ex-lover.
You have seen me at my lowest. You have been there in my darkest days. You have been influential to me and helped me get back on my feet. You are the ex-boyfriend I trust. Happy birthday, my knight.
The mere fact that I am writing this message to you is a testament that I had gotten over you. Yes, you heard it! I only love you in a platonic way. Happy birthday!

I had to admit that months after our breakup, I was stopping myself from contacting you. I know I was still in a vulnerable stage and seeing you can hamper my moving on progress. So I will just drop a quick happy birthday, then be on my way.
You have changed a lot. New look. New perspective. New attitude. But with all those new things, I know your heart is the same. Happy birthday, my kind-hearted ex-boyfriend.
Our breakup is the most excruciating thing I had to deal with. Maybe because I love you the most, amongst all my ex-boyfriends. You should feel privileged. Happy birthday, lucky man.
Moving on doesn’t mean I have to find someone to replace you when in reality nobody can replace anybody. You are irreplaceable to me. Happy birthday.
The number of times I have thought about greeting you today is the same number of candles on your cake. I don’t know why I have to think so much about it. I just don’t want you to have the wrong idea. This is just a plain straightforward Happy Birthday.
The day is almost over but I don’t want it to end without me telling you how much I appreciate our years together. It may have ended but we left in good terms. Happiest birthday to you.
We have been a couple since high school days. The IT couple of our batch. Envied by everyone. I wish we could have just stayed that way, but things happen. Nevertheless, happy birthday, my old school sweetheart.
The trouble with exes is that they tend to haunt you. Invade your subconscious to give you the feeling of nostalgia every time you see something remotely related to them. Happy birthday, my forever ghost.
Hey, ex-boyfriend. I want to warn all your future girlfriends about you. That you never forget an important date like birthdays and anniversaries. That you randomly give bouquets of flowers. That you give the most flattering compliments. Happy birthday, sweet-talker.
I have listed the pros and cons of reaching out to you. I don’t want to elaborate on it much, but I guess the pros won. Happy birthday!
The beginning was great. The middle was rocky. The ending was devastating. That was our story. But I refused to accept that is our ending. We can still be great. Happy birthday from a hopeful heart.
Until now, it is still pretty hazy to me how we ended our romance. But we had fun, didn’t we? It’s as clear as day that we had loved each other. Happy birthday.
Oh, thank God! I don’t have to write to you with some cheesy Happy birthday greeting. It’s not my job anymore. The best thing I can do now is to give you this earnest happy birthday.
My ex-dream guy, happy birthday. You may not be my dream guy anymore but you are someone’s reality guy now. I hope you keep her happy. Happiest birthday.
My dear former lover boy, happiest birthday to you. The world around us may have transformed into something we are not used to. I’m pleased that I still got to see you once in a while to remind me of the past.
I hardly see you. Well, that is expected now that we are officially taking a break. Where ever this break may take us, to be together someday or be separated permanently, I will be your friend. Happy birthday.
The task of an ex-girlfriend is to be a constant reminder of what you did wrong in that failed relationship. So you better thank me for making you improve as a lover. Happy birthday and you are welcome.
Sure it is easy to say you had moved on. That you don’t feel even a fraction of pain, regret or longing every time someone mentions his name. I just pray that the day will come for both of us. Happy birthday.
Look what you have accomplished over the years that we are apart. I bet it wasn’t served to you in a silver platter. You had worked hard and I am a proud spectator. Happy birthday.
Thinking of what could have been will just lead to more doubts. So I rather accept the situation and make do. Happy birthday, my greatest what-could-have-been.
Happy birthday, darling boy. There’s a prize for a man as decent as you. That would be love. I hope you catch it. Happy birthday.
From the bottommost of my buoyant heart, happy birthday. My thoughtful wishes are for you alone. Have a superb new year and may you have a colorful celebration!
Happy birthday, ex-honey. Praying that you will be contented with what you have. I hope you get satisfaction on the relationships you invested time and emotions on. Have an exceptional day!
No poetic words, no romantic phrases or dreamy text, just an unpretentious message for you. I am gratified by how our relationship turned out. It may not be ideal for other people but it works. Happy Birthday, my ex-sugar pie! Sorry, I can’t help with one sweet nickname.
We used to call each other love, honey, sweetheart, darling, sugar pie, honeybunch and a whole loads of cringe-worthy nicknames. I am relieved we don’t have to be that tacky anymore. But I am thrilled that I can still call you buddy. Happy birthday, bud!
Years may have passed. Our partners in life may be changing. This day will remain to be extraordinary to me. Happy birthday, my dear. Always praying for your health and happiness.
