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 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 with previous partners. What is there to be jealous of ? We love each other that is the main thing.
