I had an ex (from high school) who cheated on me and told me that when he dumped me. FI and I were really good friends at the time. The next day, Fiance asked me out (the rest is history).
About three years after that, I bumped into the ex. I asked how he and his girlfriend was doing. Turns out that the chick he cheated on me with dumped his ass a week into their relationship by cheating on HIM hAHHAHAH.
Fiance and I are still together today, 10 years later. IN YO FACE D-BAG.

I am so thankful that I will never have to encounter my ex. He lives in a different state. I always wonder what would happen if Fiance ran into his ex – especially if I was around. He hates with her with such a deep passion (cheated on him with at leat 10 men and caught her with one). FMIL has ran into her though and talked about us.

@janie-janie: How is it that I only ever see ex’s when I am dirty, just from the gym and no makeup?! I am so waiting for the day to happen where I can show off my bling, look hot and the guy looks like dirt.

@mypinkshoes: I can top that. Boxing day shopping (in Canada it is like Black Friday), at 2 pm. Not only was I wearing sweats and was sweating myself like crazy, but had no makeup, hadn’t showered in 48 hrs AND I had been up since 4 am, with only 5 hrs of sleep.
My reaction was this:
Him: takemyhand?! Is that you?!!
Me: Oh my god… *look around desperately and realize I can’t hide*

The last time I saw my cheating ex-FI was the night Fiance proposed to me… lol It was a cross between awkward and awesome. The best part was when he kept coming up to me to “congratulate” me (he did this like 30 times in one night) and then continued to text me after he left saying congratulations… I’m glad it got under his skin.
I haven’t seen him (although he has texted me a few times since and tried to add me as a friend on facebook, to which I blocked him) but I run into his cousin (who is as close as a sister) and last I heard was that he was up to the same old sh*t with his new gf (cheating and lying and what not) and was planning on breaking up with her by the end of the month… yeaaa. He’s a winner.

The man I lovingly (ha ha) refer to as “psycho ex”, the one who was so manipulative and horrible I moved 10 states away from him and everyone else who ever knew us, emailed me a long apology a few months ago. It felt so good to write back:
“No apology needed, but thanks! After I moved away I met a wonderful man and we’re happily married with a beautiful child. Thanks for checking in though, hope all is well!”
I know it’s not a contest… but I’m just saying, one of us has a fabulous new life a world away from the old drama, and one of us is still trolling for hookups at the club.

@janie-janie I had to block my ex on fb, because he would frequently make a comment or dig at something that was posted by me or a friend. We were together for 5 year. The relationship ended 6 years ago, and to this day I hear through the grapevine that he ask’s after me and wants to make contact with me even though I ‘ve made it quite clear I’ve moved on.
Between him and a past love who cheated on me, I’m still waiting for the day that I see them in person and I can show them how I’ve moved on, happily engaged, good job, living in good area, lost like half a stone in weight. It’s not about gloating… well maybe it is, but more than that it’s the final chapter that says I made the right decision to move on from you.
Not happened yet, but if it doesn’t between now and the wedding, FB will be swapped with wedding photos, so the story will tell itself!

I only have one ex within “running into distance,” and he’s a really nice guy that I dated for two years (just not the guy for me!). He was pretty upset when I broke up with him (I was his first and only serious relationship, I guess) and continued calling me for years, every week or so – just to say hi, until I gradually stopped answering his phone calls (then there were Facebook messages like “you’re really hard to get a hold of these days,” which I also ignored).
Anyway, after I finally stopped answering his calls because I felt like I was just doing it out of pity or something (there wasn’t an actual friendship there or anything), he finally got a new girlfriend, and then right after that I ran into the two of them at Target.
He was like “oh hey!” and gave me a hug, and the girlfriend I think assumed I was just an old friend. So of course, ex-bf was like “so what are you up to these days?” and I was like “well, I’m engaged, so I’m planning a wedding for next summer, and I just graduated and am going to law school in the fall” and his girlfriend started FREAKING OUT. She was all “OMG you’re ENGAGED?!?! Can I see the ring? Where is the wedding going to be?!?! Have you picked a color scheme?!?”
It was obvious she had no idea who I was. Haha. I’d never met the girl before, but we stood there in Target for a good ten minutes talking about the wedding while ex-bf kept trying to find a lull in the conversation and leave. It was SO awkward.
Then we finally ended the conversation, and I had a whole shopping list to get still… and I kept accidentally turning down the same aisle as them (Target isn’t as big of a store as you’d think!), so it was a like a game of covert shopping to avoid having to say hello again.

Hehe I like this thread. I haven’t ran into mine yet since I moved, but I’ll be home twice in the next few months and would get such satisfaction in seeing him, as I am now married, working a full time job, and happy, and he is still his loser self +20 pounds!
Although when Darling Husband and I were home for Christmas I saw his EX, who had told him to “go kill himself” and that he’d never ever find someone better. Getting to see the look on her face while we picked up the daughter they had together every morning and dropped her off for bedtime every night was more than satisfying after all she put him through! =P

My ex lives about three blocks away from me but thankfully we rarely run into each other.
I ran into him at the 7-11 with sloppy clothes, no makeup, at the end of a long day and he came over to my car when he spotted me and after a minute, told me “Wow, you look REALLY tired!”. 🙁 I told him, “Oh yeah…I’m sick…” and said, “Bye!” and popped my car in reverse and left. I wasn’t sick but I thought it was a better excuse than “I just look like crap today”.
It wasn’t really upsetting at all, just funny. I do dread running into him with his girlfriend – he cheated on me with her while we were together and then got together with her after I broke up with him. I just know she thinks she “won” him but really he’s no prize…
