Honestly, I don't care one bit. However, I will see you as a whole lot more desperate than the charming guy I saw 10 seconds previous. A little gossip about the ex might be interesting, as long as you tell it in a way that makes you sound logical, rational, and in control.
BUT breakups tend to be emotionally charged and involve mistakes from both sides, so it's usually wise to just avoid this topic especially on dates 1-5. But really - why do I need to know? I don't care.
You bringing it up sounds like you're intentionally giving me directions to your heart, where all the buttons (I shouldn't press) are. I haven't even decided whether I want to buy that heart of yours yet, so don't pressure me about how expensive it is yet. That takes all the challenge away...which is the fun part of initial dating. Let girls wonder what your history is like and it makes you seem more mysterious.
Why would you try to brag with failed relationship? It doesn't make sense.
