The EXtra stress you don’t need over the holidays.
It’s freezing cold and everyone is happy go lucky cause Christmas and New Years cheer is still permeating the frost bitten air. The best part about it all? Everywhere you go you see happy couples holding hands and playing around with each other. Ok not the best part when you’re single.
Let’s add a cherry to this joyous sundae…you run into your ex. Sure you’ve been broken up for months, but you haven’t talked to him and you definitely haven’t seen him. This is exactly what you don’t need in addition to what could potentially be the loneliest time for single people (minus valentines day which, mind you, is rapidly approaching…yay. ).
Now all these thoughts are running through your head because even though you knew he was home for winter break now you have visual proof. Do you talk to him? Do you curse him out? Do you ignore him? There’s a million reactions to this unexpected event. It’s not necessarily unwanted because you did get dressed up super sexy just in case you saw him, but now you will be thinking about him incessantly over the next few weeks.
Just keep calm, focus on you and you’ll get through him. Better yet hit up that cute guy who you’ve been seeing every now and then and start hanging out with him more. Even if nothing happens with him you’re bound to fill even a small part of the gigantic void your ex carved in your heart by glancing your way.
