SO - you hook up with someone from a club, or perhaps you had flirted for awhile, perhaps you had mutual friends who thought you would make a great couple. And you did make a fantastic couple...for a night, a couple weeks, a couple months, perhaps longer. But it was not meant to be and so you were not together and had very little invested emotionally. It was what it was: a nice hook-up, something that made sense at the time. Fast forward a week or two, months, years even and you run into a former hook-up be it in a bar or club or somewhere more random like the market or a bookstore or even walking on the street somewhere. Maybe they/you are alone. Maybe one of you is with friends or your new hook-up of the moment, maybe even spouse or significant other. What protocol do you follow when seeing someone you hooked up with once, or a few times? Do you see them first and try to hide and if spotted make a lame excuse? If you are not spotted and are able to escape undetected, do you do so? Do you see them first and approach them amiably for a bit of useless chit chat and bid one another Ciao? If they see you and approach you, what do you do? Behave graciously and go about your day/evening? I am curious to hear from everyone regardless of sexual orientation or preference. I regularly run into women I have hooked up with and while I do not care to hook up with them again, I am pleasant and smile and inquire as to how they are - even if they are with a new husband or their friends. (Previous stalkers are usually mindful of the restraining orders). So - while each situation is different and the compunded variables could make this a five thousand thread post, what is your modus operundi in such situations? Thanks!
