Fact: it is difficult and stressful when you bump into your ex, especially when you didn't see that coming. So we came up with this list for you, just in case, because that's what girlfriends do.

1. Hide. Go inside the nearest restroom. Hide behind another person's back. Cover your face with a book. Just. Get. Out. Of. His. Face.

2. Run away. The world's too small for the two of you and that new girlfriend of his. Make sure you run the opposite direction, though, and make sure you do it fast!

6. Tell him you still love him and beg him to come back in your life. Plus points if you can do this in tears.
