Maybe the person you’re dating had a wild and colorful dating past (one that is way more prolific than yours) or perhaps they were married and now have a child from that previous union.
Either way, if you’re going to be with someone it’s your responsibility to get over their pasts or make the conscious decision to move on.
In fact, first opened its proverbial doors back in 1993!
As you may know, I was actually a very early adopter of online dating, using JDate back in 2000 or 2001, before people really had any idea what it was all about.
Sometimes, the dating choices people have made in the past can be indicative of larger chasms, such as a difference in worldview and/or values. Here’s a few things to keep in mind when it comes to the pasts of the people you date. Use this opportunity to share your feelings about what they’re telling you, without irrationally blaming them for things they did before you met.
When it comes to other people’s dating choices or relationship mistakes, it’s so easy for us to judge. It might be uncomfortable to hear about someone’s dating past, but keep in mind that these are things that happened before they knew you. We all make mistakes in our interpersonal relationships, but it’s how we deal with these mistakes in our present that really matters.
All you're doing is not talking about having actual feelings towards one another.
