Don't compare me to your ex!
Does your partner ever compare you to his ex? Good or bad, does he ever bring up things about his past relationships if they are similar in some way to something you are discussing or going through? If they do, do you mind when they do it? If they don't, what do you think the reason is for that?
So this past month I explained to him that it was a rough period, I was feeling really worn down. He goes on to tell me how his ex had such big problems with hers that she had a hysterectomy.
I. Don't. Care. I find it disrespectful to even go there with me. I'm talking about ME, I don't care if your ex has a friggin sex change and renamed herself Carl. I don't want to know!
FTR, she didn't lol. It's just the point.
There's a WHOOOOOLE lot more back story here and he should know better at this point to even bring her up.
I am curious so I'll ask Erik how ex wife did certain things. It used to make him feel uncomfortable, but he's so used to it and has gotten to be really open about some past funny stories. I like hearing about them. They really are humorous.
