Bumping into an ex is generally not a great moment and can even be an emotional experience, particularly if you have any level of unresolved feelings.

While you might not be able to control your feelings, Orbit has four confidence-boosting tips to make you appear cool, calm and collected – even when you’re not.


1. Say Hello: Smile and say “Hi, how are you?” in your most confident, my-life-is-better-without-youvoice.

2. Make it snappy: Ensure that the encounter is as short and sweet as possible. The longer you stand there, the more likely your confidence will waver. 

3. Take the high road: Nothing says "I'm over it" like pretending you don’t care. Don’t bring up old hurts, and whatever you do – don’t play the blame game. Keep your conversation firmly rooted in the present. Your recent promotion, that upcoming trip, or the coffee date you have to dash to all make for excellent banter. 

4. Laugh and smile with confidence: Laughter is the best medicine, so take a moment to chuckle at the coincidence that the universe has brought you together again and smile confidently, knowing your breath is fresh thanks to Orbit.
