Sure, you can block them on Facebook and Snapchat, but that won't stop them from popping up on the very last online platform you'd want to see them. Obviously you have to figure your ex is looking to mingle, but you don't actually want to witness it in action.When you suddenly swipe across that familiar face, it can be disorienting and confusing. Whether it's been really bad, kinda awkward, or even a chance to reconnect, many people have shared this experience.One person, who wanted to remain anonymous, said she saw her former boyfriend wasn't being completely honest on his profile. Nicole actually had a surprising reaction to seeing her former flame, "So, is it bad that my first response when I recently saw my ex on Bumble, three years after we broke up, was a combo of relief and amusement?She said, "He listed his profession as 'consultant' when I knew damn well he was a waiter." She decided to call him out with a text. I literally chuckled and was like, 'Ah, so he hasn't found anyone either. It's not just me.' Like it somehow made me feel less bad about being single for so long." That's a win-win.Being away from you, however, clarified his real feelings and allowed him to see that he does like you and maybe even loves you. If you broke up with him due to behavioral issues, the time apart may have allowed him to understand his mistakes.While in the relationship, he couldn't see how he was hurting you.
Instead of working through them with you, he backs away instead.
Though it sounds ridiculous, he may have been having too much fun to realize he was enjoying the relationship with you.
He broke up, thinking that he would find more satisfaction with another woman or as a single person.
And at the very least, even if it causes some temporary shock, you'll end up with a good story.
You'll find yourself asking this question quite often if you're still in love with your ex.
Breaking up gave him the space needed to review his actions or words.
