Is it strange that my BF never tells me about his ex-GFs? We have been together 5 years. We live together, we just have a child. We know a lot about each other, and I think we tell each other everything, but he never talks about any of his exes. I am not sure how many he's had ( I only had 1). He don't even like talking about his Prom. If I ever ask, he gets irritated and says it's not important. All I got out of him is that he had some bad relationships where he got hurt and that his GF before me was really self-centered. Don't get me wrong, he is a great guy. He is good to our son. He has never done anything to make me fear or really doubt him. And it never really bothered me before, but there is one female name that keeps popping up who he claims is an old friend. He was texting and emailing her when we first started dating. When I asked about her, he said she was just a friend. Then she kinda disappeared from his FB account and list contacts. I don't snoop btw — it just something I noticed. Anyways, she suddenly appeared on his contacts again. And coincidentally he is expressing interest in moving to the city I happen to know she lives in (I did look into that). It is a little suspicious. I have a feeling that she was more than a friend. He has other female friends, but for some reason this one gets under my skin. I am not sure how to go about asking, because I know he won't tell me. And since he's kept it a secret so long I am not sure I would believe him. I also had a really bad previous relationship (the 1). I was cheated on and treated badly, so I know I have some trust issues. Also, every guy I have ever dated (casually) has been either married or had a GF in which I have found out about in other ways. So I KNOW I have trust issues. I seem to attract jerks/players like a magnet. I feel like I need to protect myself from being hurt again. So more than anything I just want to know what up, before I am shocked. Any advice? - uncertainView Thread
