Awkwardness between me and my ex, is this common?

Despite the fact that it wasn't a "relationship" you two might need closure, if you haven't already done something to get it. Sit down, and talk about it. It'll clear things up and help the awkwardness. The fact that the two of catch each other looking at one another gives the impression that's there's unfinished business of some sort, but it's still hard. I'm assuming you've cut off all communication, besides what you mentioned above. Don't talk to him in person either, act like he doesn't exist, unless you are in a situation where you absolutely have to talk to him. Just be civil, return the greeting and go about your business.

Yes, i imagine it's common. You could just return the greeting, then when you do bump into him again you will feel less nervous and awkward around him.
