Since our breakup about a month ago we haven’t had any contact at all. When we ended things we both apologised for our mistakes and I said I wanted to be on civil terms with him. So I thought it wasn’t a bad break up. But since we go to the same university I have bumped into him twice at the gym, and both times he would literally walk right past where I’m working out and not even look at/acknowledge me. If I move to an area of the gym where he is he’ll leave and go somewhere else so he’s not near me.
Since I actually like him as a person and we have mutual friends I was planning on just smiling at him but being preoccupied but he just acts like he doesn’t know me? Why is that? It kind of hurts since I care about him/ still have feelings even though I know we wouldn’t work in a relationship so wouldn’t want him back.

if you have feelings for him you and want the relationship back you have to tell him. you have to be willing to face the potential of rejection but the painful truth is a great lesson and you may have many more love lessons before finding someone who doesn't blow balloons until they pop and then act shocked, surprised see ya later goodbyes~0

Everyone handles break ups differently, sometimes we aren’t really sure what to do. While for you, you want to be casual and civil, it might be easier for him to not acknowledge you or keep his distance. Yeah, it’s mean, but if I were you I’d just accept his process and give him his space and time. Maybe things will be better after it has blown over.0
