Would you date a girl/guy who had a less than ideal past? I saw a similar question on here but the "difficult past" was more about self harm, depression and other mental illnesses. What if the "difficult past" was about losing a loved one (dad, mom, sibling)? Does the idea of worrying about this person scare you away?

I've been with girls like that before I try not to hold that agaisnt them as a reason not to date them. I would rather be a force that helps them to move on from that point and become better from it like I did rather then not be with them because of that and make it worse.

It really shouldn't. I have a very difficult past, but its not the usual past others would think: like smoking, drinking, doing drugs, having sex, etc. None of that. I just lost my mom recently last year, and my grandfather, which is her dad this summer and my dad's family just buried a cousin of mine today. Its a lot. But I wouldn't call a difficult past a deal breaker. What IS a deal breaker is if their belief's, values, views, moral's etc doesn't line up with mine. If they don't want to change, if their into things that I disagree with. Things like that. Other than that, everybody has their own baggage. But what matters is wither or not their mentally and psychologically healthy or you may end up dealing with a serious problem.0
