I'd walk on and not look back

fuck me, the video is cringy.
Meeting the girl I loved, the first time after it went downhill between us was simply us walking in opposite directions. Me seeing her from afar, her looking in her phone. She would have passed by without seeing me, but at the same time, I did not want her to look up right as I was going by and notice me and then think "ha, the bastard is a lame ass, he didn't even say hi, what a low life"... so...
She looks up from her phone screen
Her "hi, how are you?".
As I kept walking, I slow down a bit while right next to her, slightly turn around and said: "good, good", then I make a few more steps and turn around again and ask "what you doing round here?" (because she was right in my hood and basically in front of my building)
Her: "I just moved here" (points finger at another building across the street from mine. The building I could see from my bedroom window)
Me: *raising thumbs up while turning back my way and kept going while thinking "fuck my life" *
Luckily as she wasn't from around, she did not hang out with anyone around there, so we've only bumped into each other just a few times.
The second time, she looked at me and said nothing, while I waved at her from about 5 meters away.
The third time, she noticed me walking her way and she simply turned her back on me.
She eventually smiled at me once when we happened to bump into each other, but only because she was with some dude this time

I ran in to an ex while with my husband at a sporting event - twenty years later. I heard him calling my name - and because my name is unusual, it was pretty apparent someone was calling me.
There he was, drunk, with his new woman. It was such an embarrassment. He smelled bad and looked bad - and I was a bit self conscious that my husband was going to look at me and wonder what I saw in him. He kept shaking my husband's hand, telling him he was a lucky man. It was awful.
