Ex’s are a part of everybody’s life that we can’t avoid. There are few cases where people get married to their first love. A large number of men and women have exes. When in a relationship we just cannot avoid meeting our boyfriend’s friends, partners and family.
While in the relationship you can be friends with the boyfriend’s sister and build a very strong relationship, which is not a bad thing as no one thinks that things would later turn sour. It’s living for the moment. So when things turn sour between the two of you, should it mean it is also over between you and the boyfriend’s friends, partners and family? In a perfect world, we’d all be so secure and mature and self-confident that these inevitable encounters of modern existence would not trouble us at all. Or, alternatively, when we break up with people they’d magically disappear into some kind of parallel universe and never be heard from again.
The first thing to note is that, no matter how the relationship ended, don’t be the first one to set up the meeting, always let it be the other way round.
Meeting your ex’s friends is not a bad idea, but before you accept that meeting make sure you are comfortable with the meeting. Avoid the meeting if you know it would remind you of the past.
Another thing, be the one to give the directions to your discussion. Your ex- boyfriend should not be a point of discussion at any point in time. Knowing his well-being might make you uncomfortable.
At the meeting, make sure you are not intimidating and friendly. It will be for the best of both of you.
If ever there is a time to be the best version of yourself, it is when you are in that meeting; One good thing: many of these meetings take place at weddings which is nice, because you will be looking your best and, really, there is nothing wrong with that.
Lastly, make sure you look incredibly stylish and own effortlessly gorgeous pieces that look amazing on you. All the best! To get a male perspective, please click link to read my colleague’s Mitch’s views – http://goo.gl/igJaO1
