There's nothing funny about an unwanted and unexpected reunion with a former boyfriend or girlfriend, but 'The Rules of Running into an Ex' puts a hilarious spin on the awkward situation.

Created as part of Christie Young's 'The Rules of:' series for GOOD.is, the illustrated guide goes through the perilous motions of seeing an ex at what is often the worst possible time. After hearing countless failed romance run-in stories from my friends, and judging from my own experience, it seems like it's impossible to ever see an ex when you're looking your best -- or maybe that's just my own bad luck. As the guide shows, it's inevitable that the encounter will occur on a day when you've worn two different shoes, have wet hair and are running late.

Though the situation might be unbearable, it's made slightly better by 'The Rules of Running into an Ex,' which will assure you that you're not alone in your disastrous ex-date reunions. Stats for Awkward Lost Love Encounters Trending: Older & Buzzing
