No one likes a fishy boyfriend. Relationships are definitely not the place for secrets, especially when we’re investing our heart and soul. Getting lied to by someone you love hurts more than anything else in the world which is why it’s important to know the non-negotiable’s of honesty. After all, a successful relationship thrives on truth and authenticity. Here are a few things every man needs to start being open about:
- #1) The Ex-Factor
Most relationships start off asking about past relationships. The moments when you’re just getting to know each other almost always leads to the question “So what was your longest relationship?” or “How many boyfriends have you had?” Unfortunately, however, it seems like that’s where it ends.
Whether you think so or not, exes create a large sense of how we perceive each new relationship. If your ex (or his) is still a part of each others lives, it’s important to be honest about when you see him, otherwise it seems like your trying to hide something. In fact, all things relating to the “ex” must be disclosed, even if you don’t think it’s a big deal. Trust me, it’s better to be open than to create opportunity for paranoia and assumptions.
