Ex girlfriend wants to meet for dinner

And if the answer is yes, you may want to lower your expectations of the meetup and postpone it for a few months. Your ex might not even be interested in reconciliation and may only want to assuage his or her guilt or talk to you about something that no longer concerns you. So instead of meeting up with an ex shortly after the breakup, it might be in your best interest to avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety and stay in no contact. They very rarely do, so try not to get overwhelmed with false hope and continue progressing through the 5 stages of a breakup for the dumpee. Please keep in mind that by inviting you out, your ex may plan to use you for his or her own selfish reasons and discard you again the moment your ex gets what he or she wants. The only difference between regular breadcrumbing and in-person breadcrumbing is that, well… the latter one is in person, rather than via texts and calls.

I called her a couple of weeks ago to let her know that I still some of her belongings that I'd like to give back to her - and while she's emailed, called and texted me since then to meet up I've declined to scheduling issues.

I'm meeting her tomorrow. And now I'm beginning to question if the lunch part was prudent on my part. I've just really tried to live my life since we split in such a way that does not constitute any element of her I've no more feelings left for her. Just respect, great memories and the thoughts of what 'could have been'. That's it. Go for lunch, give her the things, walk away. What exactly is the question here?

Cancel lunch, give her the things that are hers. Having lunch is going to send a message that you're open to having an element of her in your life. If you don't want that, don't give that message. But be honest with yourself afterward. How shitty do you feel? How shitty does she feel? Are they inversely proportionate? Based on the results, decide whether you ever need to see her again as a friend. Unless she's crazy. You left that part out. Is she crazy? If you answered that with anything less than a "No way!

Grin and bear it or blow it out. I vote for mailing her stuff or dropping it off in a safe location. Lunch does imply "friends. Eat, give her shit back, split the check, go on with your life. Did you suggest having lunch with her? If so, then you pretty much need to do it. If she suggested it, get ahold of her and let her know your schedule has changed and try to meet up again when it is just meeting to give back the stuff since you are having second thoughts about a longer meeting.

You do realize that you two have scheduled lunch for the day before Valentine's day, right? Also, "the thoughts of what 'could have been'" sounds kinda like you're not totally over her. This is the kind of lunch where she is going to go all out to show you what you've been missing. Any chance that you've been kidding yourself about your feelings will go straight out the window, especially if she smells good.

Keep all this in mind. Don't cancel, cancelling is shitty. But do tell her sometime during lunch that you don't intend to keep in any contact with her after this.

Like fairytales said - "Eat, give her shit back, split the check, go on with your life. I'm sure you're probably just mulling this over, but your question seems weirdly Your stated question is whether having lunch with her is a good idea, but the question brings up all this other stuff. I've just accepted to go for lunch with my ex-girlfriend. You invited your ex-girlfriend to lunch and finally set a date for it. I'm sure you've had scheduling issues but when you called her for lunch did you have any lunch times free to go with her?

Making her hound you like this for something that was your idea seems a little odd considering you're saying you harbor no ill will. I've just really tried to live my life since we split in such a way that does not constitute any element of her That's great.

If you truly hold this opinion then just meet wiht her, give her her things, have a nice time with someone you don't dislike and go home. More to the point, you're the one who suggested it, what was your thinking? Why did you think this was a better option than just mailing her her things or dropping them off at her workplace or some other decent interaction?

Is she still carrying a torch? Do you worry that maybe you are, in your secret heart of hearts? My general feeling about post-relationship interactions is first do no harm and if you have to make a choice between making something awkward for your ex if you truly harbor no ill-will, weren't wronged, or whatever and something being a little awkward for yourself, you suck it up and handle things because any continued interaction with them esp one with negative outcomes is maintaining a relationship.

So, my last long term relationship was a long one five years and me and the ex knew we were going to have some ongoing untangling to do. So, we set up a series of coffee dates where we'd get together for a specified amount of time, have coffee, check in and do any business we might have to do ["here's your mail" "someone called for you and I gave them your number" "are you going to come by and get your bike or can I sell it"] and then leave.

No "hey let's go catch a movie after this" or any other date stuff, but also we didn't need to pretend that someone who had been a huge part of the other's life simply didn't exist. Put another way, it's possible that you really truly do have no feelings left for her in which case, why do you care at all about going to lunch with her?

That's it, alright. Sounds like you still like her I mean, you say you have happy memories and that you respect her , I don't think there's any rule that says you can't be friends. Enjoy your lunch, if it's good, hey, it's always nice to have more friends. Just don't do anything you'll regret later. Sounds like you've reached the perfect emotional state to have a decent, "thanks-for-the-memories" lunch.

Do what fairytale of los angeles says, and make sure you dont get sucked into reminiscing and do not make plans with her for later on. Driving while drinking, or driving while drunk?

It's a nice thought: having coffee with your ex lover. Spending a few hours one afternoon across from the person you once gave your heart to, now older, wiser. Theoretically, it could be both progressive and comforting to find space for an old flame in your new life. It would mean that it wasn't all for nothing — you're adults now, you can be civil, right? A friendship would validate the relationship's demise, wouldn't it?

If An Ex Girlfriend Wants To “Catch Up” What Does It Mean?

By Chris Seiter. When you enter the No Contact period, you may feel like your first contact, let alone a meet up, will never happen. It feels so far away and getting through the No Contact period can be so difficult. But then it happens. If you and your ex had a good relationship, she probably still cares about you on some level. Curiosity is also a huge motivator. You hear stories about people doing crazy things in relationships, as well as after the relationship is over. Ego is a powerful thing.
