  • I dont know what is in your past but he needs to let it go If you have changed and proven to him you are different.... He needs to get a grip the past is the past forgive and move on thats what he needs to do

  • You need to sit down and calmly talk to the man and ask him how much longer he intends to this, the past is done with but his bringing it up is destroying your present and your future.

  • That is the worst! My ex would bring up things that happened in my childhood to use against me, like it was MY fault I was abused by a relative that I couldn't become unrelated to. My ex never changed so I wouldn't think yours will either, but I don't know him and what of your past he's bringing up. If it's something that effected him too, then maybe he has a reason, but again, I don't know.

  • That could be a problem later in the relationship if he's already doing that now. I've learned from experience that someone who does that in the now will continue to do that throughout.

  • one of the first things the therapist will bring up is that you have leave the past in the past. It's tough. I agree, if he can't break this habit now, could be a long term problem.

  • If he's still bringing it up, it's something that's not resolved. Find out if you can resolve the issue - if not, he's not likely to let it go later if he keeps bringing it up now. If that's the point you find you're at, you need to decide if you can handle his bringing it up or not.

  • he's not going to change because you continue to put up with it, besides if he wanted to he would. does HE think he needs to get help? he's a jackass. no one should judge you for shit you can't change. we ALL have a past. don't waste any more of your time putting up with that crap. leave.

  • if its in the past he needs to leave it there. you two cannot move forward if he keeps bringing up your vices. maybe you should have a one on one with him, if you cheated or whatever maybe he hasnt really forgiven you, especially since he keeps bringing it up

  • I didnt cheat or anything like that. Its stuff that happened with ex boyfriends and something i didf when I was 15 years old

  • All the more reason he should let go and let live!
