Ever Bump Into Your Ex?

I dated a guy for 4 months. I tried so hard treating him like my boyfriend. i was very proud to have him by my side, in love with him. I sensed the opposite from him. Never felt like I was his girlfriend. At times he was condescending to me. We were intimate while we dated. He said he was confused & wasn't sure if i was "the one." Not wanting him to be forced to be with me, i let him go. It was painful for me.

The other day I saw him on the train. His train was going southbound and my train was going northbound. (both our trains stopped at the same time, same location, opposite from each other) What a bizarre moment to bump into him after months of breaking up. I caught him staring at me. He made no facial gestures. Just staring at me. I looked the other way and I felt him staring at me. Up to today, we don't keep in touch. Just thought it was strange to bump into him.

I wonder why he wouldn't keep his eyes off of me. Why he kept on staring at me. Just wondering.

thank you..

    I've bumped in to exes before, yes. It can be awkward, especially if one or both of you is with someone new at the time. I was once at a hotel for an event in the city with my boyfriend at the time, and we were waiting for an elevator. Well, the elevator opened up and one of my exes walked out of it. It was so weird, what are the chances of that? I was happy with my current BF but I saw the ex BF turn around and glance at me as we got on the elevator.

    Don't read too much in to the fact that he was staring at you; seeing you probably washed back some old memories and he was just thinking about it. Or, if you're both still single, maybe he will contact you and maybe it could work out better this time. Just don't settle for anyone you don't feel secure with.

    Maybe he was stunned by your beauty and what he had lost. He didn't realize it before because he was too busy being an ***. I have bumped into an ex of mine once or twice and he reacted about the same only mine actually tried to spark up a conversation. He didn't deserve you after all. Heal all wounds first and find someone who'll love you and treat you like a woman needs to be treated. Good Luck.

    If you should bump into her be a nice person as you are and smile and say Hi and then keep walking. If you don't want to seem harsh then pretend you're in a hurry ...

    I never bump into my exs and I still live in the city I went to highschool at. I don't know what I would do or say if I saw any of them. It's been 8 years since I have dated anyone other then my most recent ex.

    Your ex was probabally recounting memories of you and him together. He was probabally deep in thought thinking about if breaking up was the right decision. I always give them more credit then they deserve, who knows what he was really thinking.

    He was staring at you because he thought you looked like someone he knew. But probably couldn't remember your name. Maybe you changed the way you used to look a little, new hair style, new makeup, etc. Or maybe he was remembering the last time you and he were in the sack. He was looking at you, but was back in bed with you in his memories.

    He was probably wondering about you. My ex popped up a month after we broke up and came back to get my number which he was able to quote to me (but he acted like he forgot). I was basically in you situation but I know that me and him wouldn't have worked at all despite the feelings still being there. Its nothing, don't even worry about it. He self consciously wants you.

    WOW i bumped into my ex but we talked and it wasn't like that we kinda talked and ended up going back out. Don't be surpised if he calls u up and asks u out on a date.

    You obviously move in the same circles or you would have never gotten together.

    So bumping into him is not that strange

    Maybe he realized what he had lost, and is too afraid to try to contact you. My guess is that you will bump into him again and next time he will try to talk to you.
