Should you share or is it TMI?
Q: I’m dating a new guy. It’s been about a month and the sex is out of this world. We have a lot of fun together and he tells me I’m beautiful. And…I am starting to freak out because I really like him and I am scared that when he finds out some things about me from my past that he’s just going to bail. I thought maybe I should just not tell him but then I don’t want to feel like I can’t be myself. What should I do?
A: Okay, this is a really great question. There comes a time in a new relationship when you may want to reveal stuff from your past but it’s scary because you’re not sure they can handle it. Here’s the deal…

I think we share too much! I also think that what we did in the past doesn’t define who we are. Unless the past is going to come knocking at your door, it is not necessary to share the past with your present relationships. Instead focus on what you’re building with this person now. Are your basic expectations being met? I think Diana brings up the strongest more important point though, WHY do you want to share it? Maybe it’s something you could share with a friend if you just want to get it off your chest.
Thank you so much for sharing Lisa! Yes, it’s important to have someone in our lives to just vent with so that by the time it gets to the person we are dating, we are in a neutral zone. Much Love, Diana
