      once i am exclusive with a woman I tell her all...

      Since I am classy though, I leave out the graphic parts about the chains, the orangutans and the Avon lady with the @%@%$

        Cute..do you ever feel talking to much can cause problems in the current relationships. For example: Cheating issues

          I dont think talking about what happened causes the problems...
          It is what actually happened itself that causes the problems...

          Talking about it just gets it out in the open so that you can be honest with one another and so whatever happened in the past doesnt hit you in the face later on.  In that case, not only might your partner be upset about your past, but also by the fact that you didn't come out with the truth to begin with.

          True, your partner might not like what happened in the past.. and maybe dislike it so much as to dump you.  At least whatever relationship you do/might end up having will be built on honesty though

    Remain discreet in revealing too much intimate detail. It's perfectly okay to discuss the reasons behind past regrets & experiences, unless confessing too much would cause emotional or personal harm to the other party.

    It is never OK! Keep the past in your head, people are insecure as it is without adding to it.

    I dont think you should tell, and if you tell, it should be of some use for your partner. If it´s just for the sake of being honest with each other, I dont get it. The past is the past.
