College Dating: 3 Rules For Running Into Your Ex
Running into an ex-boyfriend can be uncomfortable to say the least, but by following these simple rules, your encounter may not be as awkward.
1. Be Confident: Even if running into an ex-boyfriend is unexpected, stay confident. Hold your head up high and don't run away. If you know you will be running into your ex, take some time to put yourself together so you feel good about your appearance. That way, especially if the break-up is recent, you can show him that you still got it!
2. Keep It Classy: Love hurts, break-ups are the worst, and relationships are tricky, but no matter what terms you guys ended on, know that nothing can compete with class. Even if your ex is being completely immature about the situation, it doesn’t mean you need to stoop to his level. If you run into your ex-boyfriend, be cordial and polite even if it makes your stomach churn. At the end of the day, although it may be painful, it takes strength and courage to greet the guy who broke your heart, or vice-versa, with kindness. For specifics on how to be a classy lady, watch any Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor movie.
The dreaded ex encounter is usually never fun, but just remember that time heals. Who knows, maybe while rewarding yourself at Starbucks, you’ll finally get that hot barista to ask you out on a date!
