  • A snake can't look a person in the eye, it freaks them out.
    Your ex knows he did something very vile to you and most likely when he looks at you he has to face the fact that he lost all his integrity and honor when he left you the way he did.

  • He is feeling guilty, embarrassed, he knows he screwed up. He probably has had a rough time even apologizing for his actions. He may try to act like he didn't do anything "that wrong". But deep down, he knows. That's why he can't look you in the eyes. I bet he feels scared to. Doesn't really matter how he feels at this point, but for fun, you can look away and down the next time he has to ask you a question. He'll probably wonder why you won't look at him. If it really bothers you, then ask him why he won't look at you. Sometimes they are waiting for you to ask them. That's just part of the selfish behavior. He might be playing the sympathy card if things are not so green on the other side after all and he might be rethinking his decisions -hoping you'll notice him and ask him what's wrong. My friend's ex still can't look her in the eyes (he cheated) and he exudes nothing but arrogance now.

  • Because he is wrong! Yes, he's ashamed of himself and also sounds he feels bad. Please don't ever feel sorry for him. Or only for a minute cause he has messed up a marriage. This truly saddens me, such a long marriage.
