7. That You're over Your Ex

It's wise to allow some time to get over a broken relationship before embarking on a new one. We need time to heal and get over the upset. Reassure your boyfriend that you're over your ex, so that you can give your full attention to building a great relationship with him.

It can be difficult to know just what you should tell your boyfriend about your exes. The key is to make it clear that you have moved on, and only tell him what he needs to know. He may not need to know about things that won't affect him. And don't quiz him for every little detail about his exes! Have you ever found out anything that you didn't want to know about a boyfriend's past?


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...
