Oh yes, I’ve been there, done that. It is super awkward but thank goodness he didn’t see you!

This isn’t as bad as a setting for this to happen, but I ran into my ex at my bachlorette party. He was bartending at one of the places we were at and at first I honestly didn’t recognize him until I was in line for the bathroom and he came barreling past me, rude as could be and almost knocked me over (it’s a tight hallway to the ladies’ room). There I was in my veil and penis coutour and I run into that D bag. He must have been pretty upset that I was getting married to someone else to almost knock me over. It made me really upset so we just left.

Ran into my ex once. I was home from college about two years after we broke up, and the only summer job I could find was as a gas-station attendant. My first day on the job, he came in to get gas. He seemed glad to see me and said “Hi” and asked how I was doing, but all I could think was how ridiculous I looked in my ugly work shirt!

The ex I call the [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] was in the audience of a show I was in once, less than a year after we broke up.  The stage manager pulled me aside and gave me the option of not performing.  I did, but it was really hard.  It was a very intimate show, so I had no problems seeing him while I performed.  He was less than fifty feet away the whole time, and since it was outdoors with no stage lights, I couldn’t even depend on the lighting to blind me to the audience. 

My worst nightmare these days is the same thing happening while Darling Husband is in the audience.  Darling Husband has told me on numerous occasions that if he ever meets that ex, he *will* take the [bleep] down.  I need to have a talk with him about it soon because the current performing season is about to begin, and I’m told that the ex shows up once per season.

@moderndaisy:  There’s a good chance that it will happen at some point, yes, and it’s quite possible it will happen this year.  That being said, as far as I know, he didn’t show up last year.  I’m told he was there the two years before that, but that was while I was living in Japan.

@GreenEyedMoon:  So, does he come to purposefully watch your shows or is he just interested in the actual show whether you’re in it or not?

I run into my ex from college quite a bit. We set up two very good friend of ours (one of his best friends and one of my best friends), so anytime they have a function, we run into each other. He’s always really nice, but I can tell that his wife hates me. Not that he makes her feel at all comfortable with the situation, but I try to be as nice as I possibly can to her since I know she feels threatened. We’ve both clearly moved on though and for the better. We actually most recently ran into them at a wedding we were both at over New Year’s Eve. That was a little awkward!

@2PeasinaPod:  The shows happen at a very popular festival.  He’s friends with several other people involved with it.  I was at a complete and total loss as to why he chose to go to that particular show at the festival, though, since there were a dozen others going on at the same time, and he knew I was performing in that one.  I was so angry.

If it happens again, it will be more accidental than before.  I’ve changed characters and am no longer associated with any one show in particular.  I perform in the lanes now.  There are over 10,000 people at this festival on any given day, so he might not run into me if he came.  However, my character is very popular and visible, so if he wanted to find me, it would be fairly easy for him.

It happened to me, last month a couple of days before Christmas. I was grabbing a couple of last minute things at the mall with Fiance. We were in the checkout line and I was using a Groupon…they had issues with the terminal at the store so they had to call for help. “Help” was my ex…my Fiance didn’t know it was him and he went out to wait in some chairs just outside and the ex started talking to me. Just things like, asking if I still lived around there (pretty sure he knew I don’t) and of course I felt him looking at my left hand and my engagement ring.

Thankfully I was fairly fixed up that day. I think I handled it pretty well and I told Fiance once we left who it was. It shook me up a little just because I had not run into him in over a year, probably more like a year and a half. I am the one who came out on top in that deal. I quit letting him use and abuse me and I never looked back, and now I am marrying the love of my life.

My Ex and I were engaged while I was in college and our breakup was pretty bad.  He cheated on me and then tried to win me back, but I wasn’t interested.  I started dating my current SO shortly after we broke up and my ex would call and try to disrespect our relationship so much that I had to change my phone number.  Before I switched my number he tells me that he has baby.  He slept with some chick while he was trying to get me back and he ended up getting her pregnant. CRAZY!  He ended up marrying the girl and having more kids.  One time she hacked into his old email, found my email address and started harrassing me.

The last time I ran into my ex it was totally unexpected and I was def freaked out.  I had been avoiding him and his wife for years.  I was at a golf tournament and talking to some friends before it started when I heard somebody shout my name.  It was him.  He ended up trying to talk to me later in the day and I walked off.  He asked a friend of mine to give me a message and tried to figure out where I worked now.  At the dinner after the tournament his wife shows up to eat with him and all I can think is she’s going to and start something.  I am not the Jerry Springer type, so this whole thing is beyond me.

He recently moved and before he left town he called one of my best friends to see if I would meet up with him.  He is not the brightest crayon in the box.  I have been with my SO and soon to be Fiance for the past 4.5 years.  Of course I refused and thought he was crazy.  I still get random messages from him on facebook bc apparently he found me there.  He had his shot and blew it.  I am so happy with my now SO and I dread ever running into my ex again.

@GreenEyedMoon:  Oh my gosh, I have a story like that. It was the first show I starred in (major role, onstage for most of the time) and guess who sits SMACK in the front with his new gf? Wow. 

Thankfully I didn’t notice him until halfway through the show but when I did was soooo mad. I mean, who does that? Front row, really? We were most def. not friends I don’t know if he sat there to show support or just to phase me. 

I went through the rest of the night ok and it was actually one of my better performances to this day. My girl friends who were there told me he fumed out of the theatre before curtain call was even over. Weird?
