Ex boyfriend wants to meet for dinner
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?

7 Things To Consider Before Getting Coffee With An Ex
Dear E. Jean: I'm a pretty, smart girl who's gone through shattering, horrible, tragic heartbreak because of a man I absolutely adored. After I spent half a year getting to know him, then a year and a half in the gawdawfullest part of the South trying to develop a relationship with him, he unceremoniously dumped me. I came to my senses, moved back to New York, and began a new career. My problem? He is flying in for business and has asked me to dinner. I've thought endlessly about what I'm going to wear, revved up the diet and exercise, imagined all sorts of ridiculously expensive restaurants he might invite me to, but I honestly!
Marry me. And if I end up seeing him, do I play it cool? Or should I be all sugar, like I normally am? I really want him to eat his heart out! Clearly I've lost all perspective. Slightly, Sugar: Should you "bother"? If I duct-taped your Manolos with you inside them to the top of the Empire State Building, you'd show up at the restaurant, dragging the spire behind you.
Be yourself. But I warn you: Your imagination has lathered up the smoochie-smoochie so thoroughly dress, menu, "will you marry me"—yes!
Don't fib to Eeee , your skepticism has been lost in the shuffle. The man's an "unceremonious" ass. Therefore, allow me to suggest another scenario: You kiss him goodnight in front of the restaurant; you jump in a cab, slam the door, wind down the window, throw him another kiss; and, as he stands throbbing on the sidewalk, you zoom away—gloriously, gorgeously indifferent.

Ask E. Jean: Should I Get Dinner With My Ex?
Things had been great between us. Two things happened when I got here, however, which have me thinking. First, when I arrived I was very ill with a horrible cold. My boyfriend was also sick with food poisoning but he avoided me physically.
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.
IS IT TOO LATE TO GET YOUR EX BACK?
By Chris Seiter. He took your heart, threw it to the ground, stomped on it, and then took a sledgehammer to crush the remaining pieces to dust. Why would he want to meet up? Well, there is the obvious — you have things you need to exchange, or other business that needs to be tied up. But what if that stuff has already been taken care of? Why would an ex want to meet up? You are in a prime position if this is the case.
Lunch With My First Love, 20 Years Later
I twist the band on my left ring finger. I see him at the door before he sees me. I watch him look around the room. The whole scene freezes. I am transported back 20 years: surrounded by Gothic architecture on our East Coast college campus.
If an ex-boyfriend asks you out again, it can put you in an unexpected position. You may have thought it was over and been very happy about that, or maybe you have missed him. Remember that no matter how you feel or felt about him, asking you out again was probably a difficult thing for him because of your shared history. The most important thing to keep in mind is doing what feels right for you while remaining kind whenever possible.
Should I Let My Boyfriend Be Friends With His Ex?
Reading the signs and signals that your ex boyfriend is sending you can be a difficult and frustrating process. That said, these are definitely the signs you should be looking for to tell whether or not your ex is interested in re-uniting with you and starting a new, healthier relationship…. Accepting his offer to hang out is probably not a good idea at first, since you should cut off all communication for a while after you broke up, but any invitation should be considered a positive sign.

By Cristina Odone. I am not the jealous type. Indeed, only yesterday Joanna Lumley was photographed enjoying an al fresco meal with her ex-husband, the comedy writer Jeremy Lloyd. But when I read that scientists have discovered that a restaurant rendezvous with a former lover is likely to stir feelings of jealousy in the current partner, I laughed out loud. It took scientists to reach that conclusion?
