Talking Too Much About Your Ex—And Very Negatively
One of the main pieces of dating advice I have heard time and time again is to not bring up your ex and previous relationships. This is passed on to women because it is assumed that we are the ones who tend to have issues regarding this matter. Truth is, men have just as much of a hard time not mentioning their previous loves to potential new significant others.
I, as countless of my girlfriends, have been genuinely interested in a man until he brings up his ex-girlfriend. What men fail to understand is that a woman can tell a lot about how you behave as a partner by the way you speak of your former flame. Calling your former girlfriend a “b***h” and referring to what you considered her faults and short-comings negatively can act as a red flag for the prospective new woman in your life, illuminating for her the nearest exit sign.
