How do you react when you bump into your ex(es)

Saw my ex today for the 1st time after he dumped me over a year. I was not intending to run into him. He gave me a '' cross eye '' at first. I looked away when I first saw him & ignored his presence throughout the trip,even though we traveled on the same plane for 30+ mins.

Now there is nooo way I want that guy in my life but I don't really run into exes did I handled this well ?

What do you do?

Especially if e/ she was the one that dumped you?

  • It depends on the ex and the nature of the breakup.

    My cheating ex I just ignore and she will sometimes try to provoke me but I don't give in. She denies cheating on me and when I tried talking to her about it she slapped me across the face. After we broke up she continued to sleep around, get pregnant, have a miscarriage or two, then get pregnant with someone else she also cheated on.

    My last ex I may say hi to but most likely would avoid. She was just too clingy for me and would flip out on me for not hanging out with her 2 days in a row when I had stuff to do. She also wouldn't get a car and had overbearing parents.

  • It very much depends. The ones I had the threesome with? Always glad to see those two.

    The one who sneaked out to see me while grounded? she still blames me for getting caught!

    I try to hide if I see her, which fortunately is pretty rare.

    The one who I pantsed in public? We have a good laugh about that now.

  • I usually just coldly ignore them and keep doing what I was doing devoid of any and all emotional response. They usually look at me and try to get my attention, and then smile and sometimes do that little nose laugh because they know I see them, even though I appear to be totally oblivious to their existence. I guess they find it funny or cute or something. I don't know...

  • Depends on how the break up went through.

    If broken off in good terms I would say hello, smile, and even stop for a small chat.

    Otherwise I've been known to give a chilly cold shoulder.

  • Saw my ex once with her husband and child. Ignored her as we broke up on bad terms. I did speak to her once before and we said hi to each other.

  • If it's someone I had multiple problems with, I don't talk to her, but if we broke up on good terms, I may have a short chat with her.

  • It depends on how the break up went. If we broke up on good terms and both wanted to break up then it doesn't matter.

  • if we were on good or okay terms id go say hi.

    if he was an a**hole id ignore him...but I haven't had that chance yet so yea I usually go say hi and if he wanted to talk ill talk with him.

    i still say hi even if he dumped me, even if he broke my heart. if I don't feel weird around him anymore that would mean I'm completely over him. but there are lots of people out there that still won't talk to exs

  • It depends on how you feel about him now. I'd be really friendly with all of my exs, stop and have a chat with the exception of one. If I ran into him in a dark place I'd run for my life. If I was stuck on a plane I'd keep my head down. If I was sitting beside him I'd quietly ask the air hostess if there was any way I could change seat.

  • If our break up ended messy then I may have the same reaction you did.

    If our break up ended on good terms, then I may chat with him and see how his life is going.

  • I try to avoid them at all costs. I'll avoid them in stores and if we actually come face to face, I just look down and walk away. I have no desire to see any of my ex-boyfriends.
