What you will do if your old lover happen to meet you after very long time in the shopping complex or at other place when you are with your partner? Will you introduce her/him to your partner/

Well I do not see a problem with it. If you had a relationship years ago, you and the other person has move on. Now you are with your Husband or Wife. That old relationship would no longer matter. You see, if you bumped into this old flame in the supermarket or something, the odds are that they would be the first one to say hello. If that is the case, then there is no problem introducing your Husband or Wife to that person. You probably already told your Husband or Wife about this person anyway. I do not see the big deal.

I fully agree with you in this connection when our relationship is strong enough then even if our ex meets us after many years then there is no harm in introducing he/she to our partner

"I do not see the big deal" ,you got a point inertia4. you know your intentions... and i believe your intentions of introducing them to each other is just showing nice etiquette to two people who has been part of your life, one as your past and other is your present. :)

I think I would, but I wouldn't need to put in too much information about it, I think I would just tell the guy that I'm with my husband (his name) then I'd introduce him as my friend. I'll keep the details short, and when we get home and my husband asks, then that's the time I'm going to tell him.

This will be nice and safe way to introduce or better neglect the person and if your partner asked you can say you had meet that person somewhere but can't remember

True. But you need to be very sure that you keep the tone of your voice neutral. Once your tone is different when you introduce them - that would not lead to something good. hehehe.. If women are jealous, wait till your man is jealous.

Yes, i will. Since he's my ex, belongs to my past, there's nothing to hide from my present bf. In love or relationship, there should be no secrets even if my past may return to haunt me, trying to break my relationship. However, the role of my present bf is there to protect me. IF he really loves me, he should not bother about my past, as he's obliged to know everything.

The best thing is that to be frank with your partner and tell him/her about ones ex and then one has not to worry even if he/she happen to meet you sometime in your life.

depends on how the previous relationship was or more importantly how it ended. If it is someone i never see then i probably wouldn't want to stop andtalk to them because i have no interest for any of my Ex's personally. I also have a jealous boyfriend and think it would create drama.

If everything was fine with the old relationship as you said and when two have parted from each other with good understanding then it will be very much fine to introduce one old lover to partner

This would have to depend on the relationship i would still have with an old lover. if there still feelings of caring and friendship, I would very much like for my old life and new life to exist together. Introducing an old lover to my life partner would not bother me at all.

I fully agree with you but the problem will create if one partner is narrow thinker and of doubtful nature

I had no love affairs in my young life but if I had, I would have introduced him to my life partner and expected the same in return from my husband because I think it is the best way to be frank with the life partner and also believe that raises the faith in each other.

I would not. Mostly because if my Girlfriend introduced one of her old lovers, then I would be very jealous. I would think that she would get very jealous, and it would only make problems.

If I happen to meet an old partner, yes I would introduce them. I might not tell him what we were to each other besides friends from before. I will leave that to him to decide. There really is no reason for the extra added info.
