Lesson No.4: Accept that your ex may move on faster than you expect.
Once a relationship goes sour and you and your ex have gone separate ways, it’s not uncommon that you won’t bump into each other from time to time. Don’t be surprised if they have a new boo on their arm too.
Also, don’t think they were still supposed to be dwelling over you. Everyone wants someone to call their own and there isn’t anything wrong with that. However, when you run into your ex, there are two approaches you can choose: speak or not speak.
If you choose to speak, keep it brief. For example, “Hey, how are you?” Don’t call attention to their new boo by asking “And who is this?” You wait for them to be introduced before speaking. Once they’re introduced, keep it brief again: “Nice to meet you.” Once that’s over, you return to whatever you we’re doing.
The biggest mistake you can make is calling or texting them afterwards. Don’t be pressed. Accept that the relationship is over and hope one day you can experience happiness with someone as well.
You can also choose not speak, which could make you seem bitter and salty. But, if you are uncomfortable with introducing yourself to their new potential, then keep it moving.
