Last week, she called me and asked why I am so aloof.
But I may have made a mistake by telling my girlfriend all of this.
They shouldn't have to be at your beck and call to answer all of your stupid questions.
Everyone has a history, and your potential partner probably wants to get excited about the possibility of a future with you rather than dwelling on her past.
This goes two different ways: for one, if you're in a relationship, know that you can't exactly be a bastion of advice for them.
