Met my ex, what to do? I always get this kind of question, so today I’m going to talk a little about what to do and how to act.
Meeting an ex after a breakup is always an emotional and overwhelming experience, it can leave you feeling very self-conscious and anxious, which is not the best feeling in the world.
From the moment you see your ex for the first time your heart starts to race, you suddenly start to feel all sweaty and very uncomfortable and at that moment you have no idea how you are going to react if you can get a word out of your ex. mouth or if you’re going to completely lose control and make a scene.
But this is the time you need to pull yourself together, stay calm and remember the tips below.
Things to remember when running into your ex:
• Keep it short and sweet.
Take a deep breath and stay calm and confident, smile, say hello, and then walk away.
• Try not to have a long conversation as you don’t need to catch up on what’s happened since you broke up.
• Remember that the more you talk, the greater the risk of embarrassment.
By keeping your conversation short and sweet, it will seem like you are in control of the situation and not the emotional wreckage that lies within.
• Don’t mention the past
If your ex tries to keep you involved in a longer-than-planned conversation, keep the conversation light and friendly and resist the urge to bring up the past, as this is not the time to air your grievances.
Instead, arrange a private meeting at a later date for this discussion and leave as soon as you can.
• Be the better person
Trying to stay cool and calm when seeing your ex can be difficult, especially if he is still very angry and trying to pick a fight with you. The best thing you can do is be the best person, stay calm, be nice, tell your ex you can meet somewhere else and time, and then walk away. At the end of the day, they will feel bad about how they reacted and not about you.
• Don’t misinterpret the situation
If all goes well and you have a wonderful friendly conversation and your ex hugs you goodbye, don’t misinterpret the situation.
After all, you were a couple who were madly in love in the past, and your ex will probably try to do the same as you, to keep things pleasant. This doesn’t necessarily mean your ex wants to get back together with you just because they hugged you goodbye.
Remember to leave the sweet talk and hug for the moment and continue moving forward with your healing process.
