When is the Best Time to Bring up the Ex-Factor?

We all have them... the dreaded ex boyfriend or girlfriend, and whether or not we like to admit it, they affect the way we proceed in future relationships. Learning about someone's past speaks mouthfuls, but there is a time and a place for ex-talk.

Most breakups come with baggage, but revealing too much too soon could easily scare away potential mates. We all know it is best to build a new relationship on honesty, so when is the best time to bring up the ex-factor?

talking about exes on the first date is a dating NO-NO!

I answer any question that is asked, but I don't provide all details on first discussions because I don't know this new guy well enough yet to share my intimacies with yet. I think that over time with someone, conversations come up where those things get talked about very naturally. And as time goes on, I can tell if this new guy is someone who I'm willing to share my past with in depth.

I will will not share info unless he asks first. Why dig up old stuff if you don't have to.

For me, it's when he asks. I tend to be a blabbermouth and if I went with "when it feels right" it'd probably be wrong timing. Plus, some guys just don't want to know right away and it's not a topic I'm thrilled to talk about.
