So, most bees know I HATE my job to the enth degree… Well, now it went from hate to an odd mixture of hate/weirdness/slight sadness… Last week on Wednesday, I worked first shift so I could have my hair trial.. Well, while waiting for my step dad (he works here too, I ride with him when I work early) to come off the floor, I ran into my ex boyfriend.. He was my first…well… everything.. I wanted to cry.. He was at the dress shop when I picked out my dress (accidently, he was there with his…wife).. He had on a wedding band this time, and for some reason, my stomach dropped.. He works here now.. I MIGHT run into him on a daily basis… I don’t know what to do.. I’m not sure I know how to handle this…
This is more or less a vent/rant/who knows what.. Sorry…

@hiroshymatetrastar: he’s the past! You should be over him! I guess you should just ignore him beyond a wave or something. Shouldn’t be a big deal.

@hiroshymatetrastar: Don’t let him think that you really notice him. Be civil in passing and stay happy around him. Don’t let him get to know who you are now. 🙂

@hiroshymatetrastar: Time heals all wounds, fractures and weirdness….it’s ok and I get it…the first time I bumped into a old college flame I almost died, can’t explain why though, now after a few years and just being too busy to care, he’s one of my best friends….after all, we saw each other naked, what else is there?

@hiroshymatetrastar: Where do you work? I’m having trouble understanding your post. Why do bee’s hate your job?

@mamadingdong: he’s a part of my past that has always haunted me :(.. And I fear always will
@Girasole: he noticed ME! I didn’t even see him.. he started a converstation with me.. I was.. confused.. considering he avoided me any other time…
@Nona99: <,< yeah.. naked.. that’s it LOL.. No.. I ended things with him for a stupid reason and have *almost* always regetted it.. NO regrets with the Fh though! I love him dearly!
@Miss Leopard: HAHA Most people hate my job (where I work).. But I mean most bees know I hate my job.. I work at AES

You know, I think most people can get that “stomach drop” feeling when they see their ex’s…and it might be a bit more for you as you keep running into him at really, really bad times…poor you! And now you have to work with him (maybe)…it could go a couple of ways…
1) You see him often and remember why your no longer together and compare him to your amazing FI
2) You see him often and begin to daydream about old feelings…rest assured, you can combat these thoughts with remembering not so good things about your past history together!
3) You see him often and begin to daydream about old feelings and start to question your feelings…this might be the hardest one to cope with…remind yourself this probably has more to do with wedding nerves rather than him specifically…and challenge all of those negative thoughts
Regardless, you can handle this…you are planning your wedding…and that takes crazy coping skills 😉
and if I misread what you were asking…scratch all of this!

Oh god, that is a terrible feeling!
I had the same feeling at work, I ran into an old coworker who is a contractor now. We had parted on horrible terms and now I see him weekly. But I made a point to be friendly in passing and we are on good terms now.
But you know what? This is actually a good thing, for you, its time you moved past this guy. Next time you see him, have a friendly chat, ask about his wife and how things arae going. Treat him like someone from HS you haven’t seen but only have a passing friendly interest in. You know, like those people from HS who friend request you on FB? LOL.
IT WILL BE OK. You both have new partners, are moving forward with your lives, things are good, REALLY! I PROMISE!

@b2b2013: The only bad thing in our relationship was me.. I ended it for a stupid reason (young and dumb). But I love FH, and wouldn’t change that for the world!
@kerensa: HAHAH! He was from high school LOL! He’s a good guy, I’m glad he’s happy 🙂
@canarydiamond: I *hopefully* have an interview later this week/early next week!!
