After your relationship ends, the last you want is to see your prior partner. To remain civil with them when needed, read ahead for some tips:

1. Be independent: You are single now, so flaunt it. Do not be afraid to be in the same room with them! As long as you remember that you don’t owe them anything and are your own person, it becomes easier to be civil when you come in contact.
