3. The Basic Details

Your partner should know the basic details about your exes, such as their name, how long you dated, and why you split with them. However, your partner doesn't need to know every little detail. They most certainly don't need to know any intimate details about your sex life, or hear that your ex was really handsome/ a fantastic kisser/ brilliant at everything he did. It'll make them feel that they can't possibly compare.

I agree @beryl an ex is an ex for a reason.
