Openness and honesty are very important in a relationship. But as certain topics begin to creep into your conversations with your current girlfriend, remember that there are just some things that she doesn’t need to know–ever! Here are 5 things your girlfriend shouldn’t know about.
1. You’re ex-girlfriends
Your current girlfriend shouldn’t know about your ex-girlfriends and the good memories you have of them. Talking about your ex with your current girlfriend can lead to resentment and unfair comparisons.
2. Your friends’ bad habits
It’s a bad idea to share all the dirty little secrets about your friends, especially those you hang out with on a regular basis. Chances are she won’t be cool with you grabbing drinks with your pal who always cheats on his wife? Telling her all of your friends dirty secrets will just cause her to not like them, not trust them, and will make hanging out with them an impossible task.
3. How many women you’ve slept with
It’s one thing to brag to friends, but this isn’t something to tell your current girlfriend about, and Even if your girlfriend asks you to tell her, just don’t. She’s not going to like any answer you give her. If you tell her “1,” she’s going to wonder why it’s not more and think you are lying to her. If you tell her”50″, she’s going to think you’re a jigalo. To keep the peace in your current relationship, it’s best if you keep these stories in the past and also encourage her to keep some of her stories there as well.
4. Cheating in past relationships
You may have made mistakes in the past, but now you have the chance to make a clean slate. Don’t let her know about past indiscretions. Remember, when you get caught cheating, a woman will think “once a cheater, always a cheater” and always be second-guessing you and accusing you of messing around even when you are completely innocent.
5. How your money is spent
When your dating, your finances are separate. So until you take that walk down the aisle, she doesn’t need to know where your extra cash goes each month or how much you spend on activities like hanging out with friends, new gadgets or weekend trips.
