Dating asking about past relationships

07 Jan

In every relationship, the past comes up in conversation.

And while a guy thinks that he should know certain information about his girlfriend for future reference, he is really better off being happily oblivious.

Ask teamed up to discuss what we hate to hear about our new flames' past relationships.

Here, the male editors of AM tell Cosmo girls how to bend the truth so you don't bruise his ego.

He doesn't let you know about his past relationships and how awesome those women are doing.

Both of you led a life before love thrust you into each other's arms.

A guy likes to think he is the best man you've ever dated and that he's the favorite of all the important people in your life: siblings, friends, and especially your parents.

When your new guy finds out that everybody loved the old boyfriend, his confidence wanes. If the new guy finds out he makes less money than what you're used to, he will feel incompetent.

Guys have trained themselves to say something complimentary about your personal appearance, whether it's a nice pair of earrings or a sparkling necklace.

If you say that the old fling bought it for you, it's another way of saying, "Every time I put it on, he comes to mind." Men would like to think that you never, ever think of the ex under any circumstances.
