How To Act Around Your Ex After the Break Up

You had the break up and went your separate ways, but chances are you may run into each other again. In just such an occasion it is important to know how to act around your ex after the breakup. Seeing your ex again may be difficult. One of you still might have feelings for the other. The break up may have been mutual, one-sided or nasty.

Whatever the reason and how ever the break up went, you still would like to know how to act around your ex after the break up. It may not be easy to do; you may want to get angry or even want to get revenge. However you may feel about your ex, it is important that you maintain your dignity and remain level-headed when this person crosses your path. This might sound easier said than done, but if you hope to have a friendly relationship, or have a chance of having a relationship again, or at least keep your self-respect and sanity, it is necessary.

You may still have feelings for your ex whatever they may be, whether it is love, betrayal, or hatred and resentment. However long you may have been broken up, seeing your ex may cause your feelings to come back in full force and can send your thoughts, reactions and emotions into over drive. That is why it is important to know how to act in front of your ex.

When you run into your ex you should try your best to ignore the feelings that are coming up. Also, it is important for you to be aware of your behavior and what you say. It can be difficult to control your feelings when you run into your ex. The urge to react negatively may be intense, but the last thing you want to do is make an undignified scene.

The feelings are there, and the person that you were with gave you a reason to feel them. No one's feelings are wrong, they are there for a reason. But there is a time and a place to express them, and in front of your ex with other people around, is not one of those times. Also if you would like to maintain a friendly relationship or have a chance at getting back together in the future, by remaining calm and collected you will have a better chance of doing so. If your break up was due to something that your ex did that hurt you, by staying calm and ignoring the temptation to go off at your ex, you will show them that you are the bigger person.

What to say to an ex can be difficult as well. You may want to talk about the relationship or talk about how terrible you feel about what happened between the two of you. This can make things even more conflicting and awkward between you. However, this is not the thing to do, especially if you will be seeing your ex on a regular basis. When you see this person, avoid talking about your relationship that you had with them, and don't discuss the break up. If they bring up the break up, try not to talk about it until you both feel comfortable enough that you can do so without it bothering you too much. If there is any animosity about the break up, either one of you bringing it up could make it difficult and it can create tension and ruin any chances of reuniting. To get an ex back you have to be aware of this.

If you are looking to maintain a friendly relationship, you need to remain level headed any time you run into your ex. By knowing how to act around your ex after a break up, you will handle the situation with dignity and in a sophisticated manner. It may not be easy to see this person, but at least you will know how to properly handle the situation. Knowing these things is especially useful if you know for a fact that you will be seeing your ex again. But if you don't know for sure, it is still good to be prepared as you never know who might be around the next corner.

Your Next Step

This is only part of the solution however. You have to know a lot more things if you want to get your ex to want you again. First thing is first though. A good idea would be to read the signs ex is over you, there is no point pursuing someone blindly if they are not that interested in you. This will also save you a lot of time and heartache.

Another avenue for you to explore is using Facebook to get your ex back. If you are serious about getting back together then this is a very effective way of doing so. Learn the specific Facebook techniques that garner excellent results, making your ex weak at the knees for you again.
