    “I don’t need to be introduced to anyone, but it’s a shock that she’s hiding our relationship.” If you stubbornly try to hide your relationship, some guys get the negative idea that you don’t want your ex to find out. Let your boyfriend know if you have other reasons, like that you don’t want others to interfere.

  • 4. You compare your boyfriend with your ex

    “I am not her ex. I don’t want to be compared to him.” Some guys cannot stand it when you compare them to your ex. If you are not happy with something your boyfriend does, tell him without comparing him with your ex. You can simply say something like, “Can you stop doing this?”

  • 5. You are passive when it comes to holding hands and other physical contact

    “Maybe she doesn’t want to do that with me…” When you reject your boyfriend or show that you don’t appreciate him trying to hold your hand or kiss you, he might get sad and think that you are not that into him. Your boyfriend will find you cute if you tell him something like, “I feel shy because I’m not really experienced.”

  • 6. You keep your ex-boyfriend’s contact info in your phone

    “If she keeps his contact, does that mean he’s still in the picture?” Some guys are shocked to find out that you kept your ex’s contact info. If you don’t want to delete it, make sure your current boyfriend doesn’t find your ex’s name.

    “I wonder what she’s remembering. That makes me nervous.” You make your boyfriend worry unnecessarily by looking at pictures you took with your ex. You don’t have to throw away the pictures, but make sure you are alone when you get nostalgic.

    “She must have good memories with him if she starts talking about him on her own…” Some guys get jealous of your memories when you start talking about your ex without being asked about him. If you talk about your ex often, your boyfriend will begin to wonder if you still have a thing for him. So, be mindful not to talk about him.

  • 9. You are still in touch with your ex-boyfriend

    “If they are close, why did they break up? I don’t get it.” If you are still in touch with your ex even after you have a new boyfriend, some guys will feel sad and start thinking, “What am I to her?” If you interact with your ex as friends, you need to explain that to your boyfriend and gain his understanding.
