Does someone's past count when dating them?

Say you meet someone and they seem great so you date and decide to become boyfriend and girlfriend and fall in love and then a few months down the road you find out some stuff about their past that makes you view them differently and change how you feel about them a bit. Is this something you should just try to look past because it was before they knew you existed or can you hold it against them? Can it even be a deal breaker?

  • Like the other poster said, it's based on what you found out. If it's something you can live with, don't worry about it. If it's not something you can deal with, maybe you should reconsider the relationship. Consider a few things: Does it affect the person now? Does it affect you, or will it harm you? Are you putting yourself in danger? Etc
