I know he likes me, I just don't know how much. Anyway, he told me about how he is happy that he finally get over his ex gf like 6months ago. He told me why they broke up and how hurt he was for a year. Her dad doesn't like him and she found a new bf that her dad approved of and dump him. He said he is very happy to finally get over her and can think clearly now. Anyway I wasn't going to reconsider him until I heard about his ex story because I thought he was a player. But after getting to know him a little I thought maybe he's not that bad after all. But why would he bring up his ex? I thought there's a rule about not bringing up the ex with someone you like.

There are no "rules." Never think there are "rules."
People mention about "talking about the ex" being a bad sign because a lot of people who do, are not "over" their exes. By "over" though they can no longer be romantically interested but they haven't gotten over what has happened. This can be a foreshadowing of issues you may get stuck listening to or dealing with. If he only mentioned the ex from this time I wouldn't find it all that negative. But if he keeps bringing up hating his ex and stuff take it as a sign that he's not over her yet.0
