Well, the dating is over...so how can I prepare to interact with "our" social circle again?

I have a variety of friend in various groups in my area. We hang out, go to dinners, have parties, and share intimacies. I ENJOY spending time with those who were "our" mutual friends. So what happens now that my boyfriend and I have ended our 11 month relationship? How do I keep from feeling like I need to avoid possible run-ins with the "ex"? How should I expect those that have only known us as a "duo" to react? I can only be assertive and will act like I have my life left to live, because I do, but it makes me nervous and a bit aprehensive. Any advice from anyone that's maybe faced this totally awkward social scenario? Thanks~
