We get the question all of the time -- when is it OK to talk about exes? We've all got histories, they've made us who we are, they have impacted how we engage new relationships, they took us to Europe
for the first time.
When is it OK to discuss past relationships? When do you bring up the old baggage? When do you introduce the topic of past failures into a new relationship.
The answer is simple -- wait as long as possible. If you can, wait longer than that. Early in a relationship you have no idea how the other person will internalize discussions about your ex. Wait. Then wait some more. Talking about exes is almost always about making yourself feel good and is rarely about sharing.
