So, my ex girlfriend dumped about 7 months ago after almost a year of dating. I was pretty hurt by the whole thing and tried to get her back at the time, but she said that she simply never loved me and felt were weren't suitable for the long term.
We are in the same community and share friends. She and I get invited to the same functions sometimes. While I would love to go to spend time with my friends and possibly meet someone, my ex's presence bothers me. I usually get upset when I see her. I have not seen her yet with another dude, but I know that will happen and it will feel like a kick in the balls.
Should I purposely avoid going to functions where I know my ex will be even though my friends want me there and there will be other women there to meet? Or should I simply "man up" and confront my fears, even if it means accepting some heartache and pain? No pain, no gain?
I have feeling that my ex will try to through any guy she is with in my face. I have been nothing but gracious towards her since the breakup. Maybe if I keep being gracious, I can kill her with kindness and she will be civil.
