Dear Auntie G,
Two years ago, I began casually seeing a guy for about four months. One day, he ghosted me and fell off the face of the earth.
About a month ago, my best friend met a guy at a bar who happened to be best friends and roommates with the guy who ghosted me. And last week, her new boo showed up to meet us at a club... and brought my ex along.
My heart sank in my stomach, but I played it cool and we were friendly to each other. About an hour later, we ended up hooking up. I went back to his place and slept over. The next day we got up, kissed goodbye, and I left.
I haven't heard from him since.
Now that I've been ghosted twice by the same guy, how should I handle seeing him around because of our mutual friends?
