I'm going to be a college freshman in the fall. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and having a fresh start. I just learned that my bitter ex from a recent relationship is going to live on the same floor as me. How do I handle this? I don't want things to be awkward. I don't have hard feelings toward him. I just want a fresh start without past drama.
It's a sign it's meant to be! But what it's meant to be, I'm not sure. It might mean having to share a common wall with a crazy, bitter, sad ex. Here's what you need to understand exes who want to get along find a way to get along. Find out if he wants to get along. Talk to him face to face or on the phone. Find out if he's really bitter and bothered or happy to have you on the same floor. Once you get a better handle on how he's handling this, you'll be able to figure out whether you need to relocate. If you do request to move, don't date people on your new floor. That could mean having another ex on the same floor kind of defeats the purpose of moving.
