Ask A Dude: Awkward Encounter With The Ex

Dear Dudeness, OK, so I need your help. My ex dumped me about 8 months ago saying that we needed space. I called BS and we didn't talk after that.

You Ran Into The Ex. Now What?

At this point, all I wanted to do was put the world on pause and take my time to digest the situation. And maybe brush my hair. But I wasn't Zack Morris so neither of those actions was an option; I didn’t have much choice but to power through.
