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.
