How Long Do You Wait Before Mentioning an Ex?

Most of  us have exes, and they’re bound to come up at some point in your relationship. But when is it safe?

I met a guy on an online dating site, and we hit it off on our first date. But by the third date I knew something weird was going on. We were out to lunch, and he mentioned his ex-girlfriend. It was totally out of the blue, but it felt weird that he was complaining about her already.

Then he started mentioning her more and more. After two months I found out they lived together . . . dated for a year . . . and broke up not long before he met me.

He swore that he was over her, and like an idiot, I believed him. He started talking about her all the time, and I knew I had to cut the cord. After I broke up with him, they got back together.

To me it was a cautionary tale to look out for those red flags early in a relationship. If they’re whining about an ex on the third date . . . watch out.
