Sex & the Single Woman: Blast from the Oh-Too-Recent Past

Last night I had that oh-so-awkward moment we all dread. I ran into a guy who I briefly had a flame for, but never speak to.

I was at my friend’s birthday party when I ran into him. He lives in another city, so I was definitely not expecting it. The worst part was the way I handled it– I pulled the ol’ avoidance manuever.

I kept hoping for an opportunity to casually say hi and break the awkwardness, but no such chance presented itself.

I hate being that girl who seems bitter, because I rarely am. However, I don’t think there is any way that I walked away from that situation without seeming rude.

How do you handle these situations?
