7. A man's best friend can have all-access to his personal life. Often times with a girlfriend, there may be some stories in his past he may never feel comfortable telling her about. Do not take it personally. Some men may be just too embarrassed. A best friend would just laugh it off, but the same stories may destroy his girlfriend's perfect image of him, e.g., "That's what you used to do?"
She might not be able to handle stories from his past, not truly taking into account that his past experiences, good or bad, helped make him into the man he is today, the man she currently loves. We don't all have perfect, fairy-tale lives. But it's not about who you were but who you are now that matters the most. Advice: Why Do I Always Date Bad Boys?
