How to Act When You See Your Ex in Public After a Recent Breakup


With the recent public appearances of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, here are a few tips on how you can go about a breakup without causing any drama

If you’ve been on social media these past few days, then you’re aware of the tea between Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla with their recent public appearances. The breakup statement from both stars was posted a few weeks ago, but all eyes are still on them, especially with how their fans have been analyzing their body language when they’re together.

So if you find yourself in a similar situation with an ex of yours and you want to avoid any possible rumors, here are a few tips on how you can handle it with zero drama involved.

To be or to not be cordial 

Before taking the necessary steps, it all boils down to how it all ended. Did the relationship end on a good note? If so, then it’ll be easier for you to at least greet each other, maybe even hug or a kiss on the cheek. But if it went south, then might as well just do a simple hello and walk away. 


Talk things out

Now this might apply to those who ended it on good terms because you’ll have the chance to go about your next move together. Hanging out again as exes might not be the best, but you can take some time to lay down your boundaries with each other so you can avoid any unnecessary drama within the friend group—because who wants that after a breakup? You guys wouldn’t want your friends to pick a side, too.


Set up a wall

Remember—you broke up, so it’s time to act like individuals and not as a couple. It might look harsh, but it’s completely valid to act like you barely know each other, especially if you’re the one who called it quits. So how do you go about it? Be nonchalant. Act as if their presence doesn’t bother you or learn how to desensitize yourself from their emotions—you don’t want to be misleading after a breakup. 


Keep your composure

If your ex seems to be acting like they’re still your partner, you have to make it clear that they can’t continue doing those lovey-dovey acts like they used to. If you’re placed in that unfortunate situation, it’s time to get yourself out of it. He’s reaching out to hold or hand? Just continue walking and put your hands behind your back or pretend you’re busy fiddling with something. She’s trying to fix your hair? It’s okay to take a step back and kindly let her know you can do it yourself. At the end of the day, you have the power to let your boundaries speak for themselves.
