If you still have to see your ex regularly or have a habit of "bumping into" one another a lot, it's important to be able to demonstrate that you've moved on in positive ways and that seeing him or her again doesn't make you weaken your resolve or pine madly after them again. Keep your self-respect and tame that wish to bite off their head!

Don't show any signs you care. It isn't unusual to find that an ex thinks it's easier to fend you off with "Yeah, you're great; I still like you really lots" and other unhelpful double-speak that simply means "I got to get out of here, you are too much for me these days". It is far better to call a spade a spade and not engage in the double-speak. Let your ex know that it's great to see him or her looking so "together" and happy again but do not give any indications of still caring (especially not if you still do!).

Act like you're too busy to notice any attempts by your ex to get your attention or to move you back into past patterns. Your ex might still hanker for you or wish deadly revenge on you but you're above both avenues of possibilities. Knock it on the head with "Knock it off X, that's so transparent and you know I've got a new XYZ to be getting on with. Great to see you but got to go!"

Flirt with some other attractive person. If your ex tries to woo you in a crowded place despite you having made it clear that there's nowhere for this to go, try a little flirting. Or bring along a friend who is in on this and pretend to be together (same or opposite sex is no matter). Show your ex that you've moved on in the relationship department. If your ex asks after this person another time, just say it didn't work out but you're with Y now. Nothing more irritating to your ex to know you're playing the field!

Keep the conversation short and to the point. Don't even allow your ex to meander down the old paths of love and tenderness. Cut off any waxing lyrical with short statements guaranteed to throw a wet fish on the lovey-dovey stuff.
Find the real you. In order to move on, you need time to yourself to think like," Who am I? Is this really me?" Spending time on yourself will allow you to truly move on and feel detached from your ex. The more confidence you feel yourself, the easier dealing with confrontations or meetings with your ex will become.


Show your ex you don't need a guy or girl by your side to be whole.
Keep your mind open and show him that he's not the only guy in your life.
Prove you have some self-esteem!
If he or she is near, who cares! Act like you didn't even know he or she was there!


If your ex is an immature pain, act like you didn't hear the words of jealousy.
If he tells everyone that he doesn't care any more, maybe it's because he doesn't. Or maybe he does but he doesn't want to show it. Be careful and don't make a fool out of yourself.

Don't brag to your ex (if he/she still likes you) that you have a new boyfriend/girlfriend...that will make him/her think that you might be trying to make them jealous.

Indeed, life is short. Don't let another day go by without taking a chance on happiness. You will never know until you try, so remember to make a move today. It can change or affect the rest of your life, therefore, at the very least, you can try to come out something for your ex love partner during your weekend plans.
