Does this relationship worth continuing?

I have known this girl for about 8 months. She has put a lot of pressure on me to meet her parents and wants to see my parents as well. In the beginning of our relationship she told me that she was done with dating and the last person she wants to be intimate with should ideally be her husband. She said that she dated two other people in the past and I am the third one. Since she was 30 years old and her number was too low to me, I asked her if she met other people in between her serious relationships and she said yes but she claimed she was not intimate with them. Anyways I did not care about her number as long as she was honest with me. [more inside]

Is this just a special-snowflake-petty relationship concern?

If your partner did something wrong when you first started dating and you didn’t find out until later when you were deep in a happy relationship, what would you do? How much of the past do you let go and how much of the past do you let define the present (e.g., break up)? [more inside]

My ex-boyfriend is on a path to platonically breaking my fiance's heart similarly to the way he broke mine, possibly because of me. How can I stop this, mitigate it, or support him through it? Is there any way I can give insight from my previous relationship, or is that too weird? [more inside]

Sweet Guy or Crazy Person?

I am currently dating an ex, and we've been back together for about a month now. Everything is going really well, except for the fact that I'm starting to get a little freaked out about his revelation that he thinks I'm his soul mate and that he never got over me from the last time around. Does this guy sound sweet and sincere or potentially unbalanced? [more inside]

lunch with the ex ...good idea?

I've just accepted to go for lunch with my ex-girlfriend. I called her a couple of weeks ago to let her know that I still some of her belongings that I'd like to give back to her - and while she's emailed, called and texted me since then to meet up I've declined to scheduling issues. I'm meeting her tomorrow. And now I'm beginning to question if the lunch part was prudent on my part. I've just really tried to live my life since we split in such a way that does not constitute any element of her ...and I'm proud to say I've done that. I've no more feelings left for her. Just respect, great memories and the thoughts of what 'could have been'. That's it.
