17 people on how they felt when they ran into their exes for the first time after the breakup

One of the most cruel injustices of breaking up is that, afterwards, the other person continues to exist.

You might run into them in the mall, on the street, or at a party, but it is almost certain that you will cross paths with your ex at least once. That said, how you handle yourself when you finally do see them face-to-face is an entirely unpredictable matter.

A group of former lovers recently took to Whisper to admit what it was like to see their exes for the first time after their breakup. For some, the experience was truly painful and cringe-worthy. For others, it was something of a relief and reassured them of their decisions. One thing’s abundantly clear on both sides, though: running into an ex will definitely stick you smack-dab in the middle of a sticky web of emotions.
