It's getting to the point where I should tell my new guy about my ex. Only a few people knew about us: my friends and his roommate basically. I've mentioned him before but never said my ex's name, just told the story of how and when it ended. But now I feel like I should tell my new guy who it was. He is now roommates with my ex's roommate. (The roommate didn't say anything when we were introduced again, kinda hoped he would) And now apparently my ex and my new guy are "friends". They've never really gotten along but for some reason they were hanging out/partying together this weekend. I just feel like this should come from me. I don't want to make a big deal about it. But I am worried my new guy is gonna be upset, thinking I was hiding it from him. So how should I bring up my ex? Ideas?

Sooner is necessary, before he hears about it from your ex, since your ex will have his own version of what happened and you might not like his version!...
As you say, the longer you delay the more it will look like you were trying to hide something, although it doesn't sound there was much to hide if no one knew...1
