It only goes away when you face it. When you have a “normal” conversation with him (even if real brief) and keep doing it until you get used to it.

It really is only as awkward as you let it be. If you feel awkward he will, if you approach him and say “Hi, long time no see. I hope everything is going well. How is your mom?” and then move on. He will then respond with the same pleasentries and life at the party will move on around you.

I agree that you definitely have to face it. I had a similar situation with a high school sweetheart. We dated for 6 years, broke up, and things were REALLY awkward for two or three years. But we hung out at the same bars (we broke up right after we turned 21) and had lots of mutual friends, so one night I marched up to him and bought him a shot. We had a brief conversation, and then I walked away, and made sure that I kept the line of comunication open from then on. It was tricky and awkward at first, but now, years later, we’re actually friends. Like, for real friends where I go to barbecues at his house and me and my SO go out for drinks with him and his. Strange but true. lol.
