I've been seeing a guy for about 3 weeks now. We're hitting it off pretty well, but he's only been single for about 2 months. When he does bring her up (which has been maybe only 2-3 times) it's along the lines of "so when that went down with the lady friend..." I'm happy just being with him, but I am a bit curious bc I don't want to be his "burnt pancake" relationship. Is it ok to ask why they broke up or is that an off limits topic?

He will tell you fairly soon. Wait for him to raise the subject. You may be able to "prime the pump" by telling him about your last relationship and why you broke up.1

It's perfectly fine to ask him that. But it's perfectly fine of him not to give you an answer. Some people are just private like that.0
