Yes of course. Your past isn't some distant unrelated relic that people pretend it is. Your actions speak volumes about you, even if those actions occurred three months ago or three years ago.
So if he was ever abusive, had ever cheated, had a history of crime/violence, shit like that, etc I wouldn't date him. Everyone makes mistakes though. So I wouldn't be like oh you took acid and screwed your neighbor at a bonfire you're a man whore and I'm never talking to you again. It's just life everyone does dumb stuff they aren't proud of. But if he's done things that indicate his character isn't good then I'm out.1

Depends on how it affects who they are now. For example, If a girl has a history of all her ex boyfriends cheating on her and I can tell she has major trust issues still... that's a judgement call I have to make. Deciding whether or not it's worth pushing past her walls and if the slightest thing I do she doesn't 100% approve of will be considered "breaking" that trust I was supposedly given.
Some girls are looking for anything to confirm the beliefs they have. If one belief is guys can't be trusted, she'll find something to say you showed her you can't be trusted either.0
