Cupid’s Advice:

When we begin to date someone new, we may have a lingering curiosity about his or her past; it’s human nature! Everybody has to start somewhere. But, what if your partner’s past wasn’t as great as you expected it to be? What if he or she isn’t interested in giving you details? Below is some dating advice and a few suggestions regarding how to get over their past.

1. Look at your own past: Take a good, hard look in the mirror and decide. Can you fairly judge this person? I’m sure there are a few items in your past that you’re not proud of. Don’t be so quick to point a finger or criticize.
