Unless you’re going to go up to every single person at the party to say hello just to be polite then, no, it’s not rude.

@AussieSummer:  Oh I just looked in your history.  He broke up with you and has been a jerk about it…

Ignore him. If he says hello, say hello back and move on. Other than that, cold shoulder. Leave early if it gets uncomfortable, the couple will understand.

No, there really isn’t any reason to go up to him and say hello. If you can, treat him as you would any other guest at the party; if there’s no reason to talk to him, don’t talk to him.

Definitely don’t go up to him and say hello. There’s no reason to.

@AussieSummer:  agree with the other bees! Say a polite hello, then stay away and ignore him. And hell yeah to the smokin hot dress! He deserves to see what a sexy woman he lost due to his stupidity.

@AussieSummer:  Just avoid him! No need to make an issue of it. Good luck, I’m glad you’re wearing a hot dress!

@AussieSummer:  Don’t be the one to initiate contact. Avoid him if you can, without being obvious about it, but if he says hello just be polite and move on.

If he keeps pestering you to talk and/or deliberately follows you around, even after you’ve made it clear you’re not interested in talking then you have every right to tell him to leave you alone.

@AussieSummer:   Be too busy looking smokin’ hot to talk to him.   🙂  Oh, yes, and smile all the time.  Look VERY happy.

Be civil if required, nothing more or less. Do not approach him.

Prepare yourself for if he brings a date too.

@aamyfisher:  

I was also hoping for a picture of the dress!! lol

I don’t think you need to go out of your way to say hi. If you happen to walk around the corner and he is right there then it’s fine/polite to say hello. But don’t feel like you need to track him down or anything.
