i’m a strong believer that not everything you do needs an explanation. if you want a tattoo, get one. if you rather stay home that night, it’s okay to miss that party. don’t forget that you’re living for yourself. you don’t owe anyone an explanation for your choices or preferences.
It’s fine for your partner to have had past relationships that didn’t work out – otherwise you two wouldn’t be together. But if their past relationships ended badly or there’s still bad blood between them and their ex, it can be a warning sign of potential future problems for the two of you. Here are some warning signs from past relationships to be aware of:
· Their ex hates their guts. They don’t need to be best friends with their ex, but if their ex completely hates them, you should wonder why. It could be that their ex is just an angry person, or it could be that your partner did something so hurtful that they just can’t forgive them. Try talking to your partner to find out why their ex is so full of hatred towards them to see if it’s something you should be concerned about.
· The details are sketchy. If you’re not really clear on what happened and there are conflicting stories on why they broke up, you should be wary. If you can’t get a straight answer from your partner about what happened, they might be trying to hide something.
· Talking about their ex makes them really angry. If your partner gets all fired up in a fit of rage every time they mention their ex you should wonder why. Maybe they can’t forgive them, maybe they aren’t over the break up, or maybe their temper is a sign of potential anger issues. Try to talk to you partner to find out why they’re still so angered by their ex.
