Here are a few powerful tips that you must read so you are prepared before running into your ex.
- Pay attention to the signs
Pay attention to their gestures, pay attention to how much they are interested in talking to you. Even if you see a slight disinterest keep it as short as just a wave or a node. But if you see that they are interested in talking then you can try to have a conversation with them.
- Act indifferently
Don’t act any differently with them. Treat them as one of the friends and act normally with them. Talk to them normally ask them about their life and keep it short, do not try to bring past in your talks, just ask about their present life and tell them about yours and that’s all.
- Don’t talk about past
Try to avoid talking about the past, talk about present things, or things that are ongoing and prompt. Don’t try to go deep on the talks, ask them about their present life and present status of life and if they ask about yours tell about it. Never try to bring back those memories in the talks this might hit your soft spot and make you weak.
- Don’t be too nice or too mean
Don’t try to be anything different than normal. Don’t try to act differently in front of them, act normal. Don’t be too nice considering that it’s them or don’t be too rude. Act and answer normally to them.
- Don’t get too interested
The talk might lead to an interesting conversation, but remember whom you are talking to and try to avoid taking too much interest in them and their life. This might lead you to overthink about it later on and remember about the past.
