What are some ways to react when you run in to an ex partner?
1. Don’t be fake: If you’re not too happy to see your ex, don’t jump up and give them a huge hug and don’t slap them in the face either. Â Smile, say “hello” and end the conversation politely. Your ex should get the point. Â Acting upset seems desperate.
2. Keep the convo simple: Ask your ex what they’ve been up to since the break-up, and make sure to talk about your accomplishments. Â Don’t get into each other’s love lives. Â Keep the conversation platonic unless you’re thinking about rekindling the relationship.
3. Take the attention off of you: Chances are that if you bump into your ex, you won’t be alone. Â To avoid awkward silences, introduce them to your friends and let your ex know that you are in a hurry, whether you are or not.
