  • I wouldn't mention my ex while getting to know someone, but eventually the topic will come up. It shouldn't come up a lot though and you definitely have to watch out for this:
    How often do you discuss your ex compared to your partner and his/her exes? I find the healthiest relationships I've had involved a mutual discussion of exes, often with inside ex jokes that apply to the exes of both partners. Like pointing at something rude and saying "Hey look, it's your ex!" and you both laugh. If one of the partners is friends with the ex, the ex should pop up in conversation no more than a regular friend.

  • I'd say yes but to a certain degree esipcaly while in a relationship with someone else cause after all your ex is an ex for a reason. and you might unintentional create some tension between you and your current love interest in the process. so just be aware of how much time your spending talking to them. good luck and hope this helped 🙂

  • If it’s a to a current partner bringing your ex up a couple of times is okay anything more than that is excessive and will have them wondering if the feelings are still there. To a friend pour your heart out you may be annoying but that’s what friends are for.

  • Depends on the situation. My boyfriend and I sometimes ask questions about each other’s exes but it’s not okay to constantly talk about your ex to your SO

  • I think so, to an extent. It's healthy to talk about things you do and do not enjoy which requires a past relationship sometimes. That being said, if your not over your ex don't put someone else through the pain. It's pretty easy to spot

  • Yes if its talking about kids. But no guy wants to hear about an ex. Just like girls dont want to hear about the sex of an ex. There are ok times and just said no nos.

  • I think it's okay to talk about ex's, aslong as both parties are comfortable with it and there's no comparisons with your current partner

  • Depends.
    I don't mind it at all when my boyfriend needs to let out how hurt his ex made him in certain topics we had been already discussing. We're boyfriend & girlfriend, but we're also best friends and love to be comfortable about such talks.
    I remember when another time, a boyfriend of mine talked about his ex after we had sex secretly at his house, he said how she accidentally left her underwear or something in that very same room we had sex and i was like... really? You had to bring that up? Big turn off.

    You gotta know your partner and understand what's completely great and whats wrong and crossing the line in terms of ex topics.

  • Only if your partner is comfortable with it. On the one hand it's a part of your past and you should be able to talk freely about absolutely everything together, but it can be hard for them to hear and think about it so tread gently until you're close enough to talk freely
