My friend Vince said that he was out with his girlfriend in East Atlanta this weekend hanging out in a bar. They were having a good time until “some dude” approached his girlfriend and struck up a conversation with her. He realized quickly that he was someone that she used to know.
Things got awkward when she failed to introduce Vince and she started behaving odd after he left. She was very vague about who the man was and she became annoyed with his questions about him. This lead to a fight and now he feels he has every right to know who the guy was to her and why she didn’t introduce him.
I have never had this happen before so I don’t know if I would have handled it like she did. I do understand not wanting to dredge up old stuff if an ex pops up around the new guy. It does not mean she has something to hide, but Vince thinks she is. What do you think?
Should our partners be privy to all the details of our lives before we met them?
Should you bring up the past if there is something you feel that you want to know?
