5. Keep It Balanced

While it's tempting to bitch about your exes, try to keep any discussion of them fairly balanced. You shouldn't be either too gushing or too negative. If you're too complimentary about your ex, your present partner may think that you're still carrying a torch for them. If you're too negative, however, you boyfriend may think that you'll do the same to him if you split!

Avoid Comparisons


I just got my boyfriend but he has only really come out of a relationship where his ex girlfriend cheated on him. But now I have read this article I know what to do.
My fella has said our past is history , although we do chat about past failed relationships !!
Never live in the past....love this article
I agree @beryl an ex is an ex for a reason.

My second husband and I were both in our 50 's when we met each other. Of course we knew we each had a past and accepted it. Daft if we din't ! We often have a laugh telling each other about escapades...
