What HIS EX Says About Him
Pay attention to your current boyfriend’s last love (and how he is with her)—it could be an indicator of how he’ll treat you.
SHE’S YOUR TWINSIE You ‘stumbled upon’ a picture of his last girlfriend, and she looks like your sister from another mister. “You never want to feel like he’s dating you only because you fit his mould,” says Vranich. “But look at it like this: maybe your curly hair is what attracted him to you in the first place, but it’s how well you two get along that will keep you together.” As long as your guy is committed to getting to know the real you, don’t worry.
SHE’S GONE PSYCHO ON HIM “If his ex or exes are severely angry with him or have lashed out at him to get revenge, there is a reason they’re angry and he’s likely responsible for it,” says Vranich. Proceed with caution... or better yet, pump the brakes completely.
UM, HE DOESN’T HAVE AN EX With Gen-Y delaying commitment longer than ever, many guys go through their 20s girlfriend-less. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but he may not be a perfect partner due to inexperience. If you’re up for doing a little training, more power to you.
SHE’S HIS BFF If you’re nervous about how close they are, that’s understandable. “Pay attention to how the ex treats you,” says Vranich. “She should be happy to meet you and treat you with a tonne of respect.” If she’s cold to you, take note—that’s a sign she may still have feelings for him. And if he never wants to introduce you to her, it could mean he’s still harbouring feelings for her. Not a great sign either.
