Some people get really bent out of shape when others talk about their exes too much. Or if they keep bringing up “their old job” or “that one time they lived in Italy for three years.”
You guys. Shut up. That is so goddamned dumb. That’s asking someone to ignore/omit/whatever a giant chunk of their life for your personal benefit because you are a giant adult baby.
The dude I am currently dating was with his last girlfriend for FIVE YEARS. If she didn’t come up sometimes in conversations or as a central part of a funny (or not funny) story, I’d be fucking shocked because that is a BIG BLOCK OF TIME to just omit because the idea that my boyfriend dated someone before me just makes me want to vomit. (It doesn’t.)
There’s a difference between people who aren’t over something and people who are, and I like to think that y’all are smart enough to figure that shit out
