i'm going to a party on saturday after i get back from vacation, and my ex girlfriend is going to be there. we were together for 4 months, and i absolutely loved her. we broke up about a week and a half ago. she's going with this guy that is apparantly the reason we broke up, and its REALLY pissing me off. i thought about bringing this really pretty friend i have to make my ex jealous, but she's already busy on saturday. so what should i do? i definitely want to go to the party, but i don't know what to do about the fact that she's going to be there with that guy...
LadyH answered Wednesday March 21 2007, 12:47 am: Bringing a pretty friend is not going to solve anything. Infact, it'd be an immature way to deal with the situation. Your ex girlfriend clearly does not want to be with you if she is with this other guy. There's no use in trying to make her jealous or "get back" at her. Go to the party, enjoy it & don't pay any attention to her or the guy. As much as it's bothering you, it shouldn't. Be the better person & handle everything like an adult instead of a typical 14 year old. :) [ LadyH's advice column | Ask LadyH A Question ]

-you bring that friend.
-dont look at her the WHOLE time.
-if you do, kinda just nod your head like eh. hi?
-small talk. and pretend your not interested if she strikes up a conversation.
-flirt with that friend, if she'll let you.
-dont laugh at her jokes, but laugh at your girl-who-is-your-friend's jokes.
-if she talks bad about anyone, give her a rude glare and walk away.

Not that she's your enemy, but bringing another girl will make her glad that she broke up with you, not jealous. You'll probably have an awful time too. If you want to make her feel bad that she broke up with you, go alone. Be extra nice to her. Who knows, maybe she'll realize that she made a huge mistake and want to get back with you because you care about her so much and are so loyal to her. If you don't get back together with her, it'll be hard in the beginning, but don't let her ruin the good time that you could have at the party. You'll get over her someday. Seeing her with another guy might even help speed the process. Don't make it more painful than it has to be. Definitely go to the party. Good luck. :) [ sizzlinmandolin's advice column | Ask sizzlinmandolin A Question ]
MelLeDisko answered Tuesday March 20 2007, 11:26 pm: You can always bring another cute girl friend of yours, can't you? Or if you know another cute girl that's going to be there at the party already, then just start talking to her there and be sure to give her a big hug & all.
But if you can't find a girl, just go. Don't let your ex-girlfriend ruin your fun. Just ignore her and enjoy the time you're spending with the person who invited you and everyone else that's there. If she tries to introduce him to you, play it off and act like you're cool and say hi. And then you can just go back to doing whatever you want. Just try your best not to even think about her and remember that she's there. I know it's going to be really hard but just try your best to forget, and really have fun. :] It's kind of like a double whammy there, too. You have fun and then whenever she sees how much fun you're having and all the socializing you're doing she might get a little jealous/hurt that you're not more hurt that she dumped you.

If I were you, I would go to that party and avoid my ex. It is the best thing to do. After all, I don't think you want to get into a fight. If your ex spots you just say hi and if she introduces you to her boyfriend then be the bigger person and meet him. Then just say oh, well nice seeing you again! you 2 have fun.
you can always try to get a really nice looking girl to go with you to the party to make her jealous. Make sure you hug and kiss like crazy! it will totally tick her off! [ Flaggal's advice column | Ask Flaggal A Question ]
