I was with my ex for nearly 4 years. In the last year he was living in america and I was in the UK, so we only saw each other twice in a year. Whilst he was away for the first two semesters we were in an open relationship. In the third semester we got back together. Shortly before he came home I cheated on him and we broke up. We are still on good terms now.
My question is - because it was such a complex situation, and also due to the open relationship factor previously - do i tell a new partner the details of this? Or do I withold some information?
He was very understanding but if he ever questions me further I will definitely tell him.
Thanks for all your help

You should not mention it to a new partner unless he asks. I cheated on my ex too, and it was a mistake. If a new partner asks me outright, I'll be honest and give the circumstances and regret, but would not throw it out there otherwise.0

Everyone has things that they may Not be proud of from their past. However, it's your own business and I do not your dirty laundry has to Be aired for your soul mate at hand to possibly Bring it up, where you ended up barking up the wrong tree because you opened up your own yap.
Good luck. xx1
