  • It's not pertinent to the situation. Now if you have an arguement and he wonders why you cower, then it would be a good time to tell him why.

  • I think it depends on how serious your relationship is right now. Also you should tell him if he is interested in your past relationship because some guys arent interested.

  • I think you will know when the right time is to tell him. If things start getting serious and you can really see yourself being with this guy for a long time, I think you should let him know. You should get to a point where you feel comfortable talking about it with him first I think.

  • If you tell him then he may feel that you trust him enough that you shared a piece of your history and that it may also tell him that that's why your cautious and that you are smart to be carful because you don't want history to repeat it self GL.
