    I found out my gf was flirting with a guy who had a gf a while back before me and her became an item and I'm not sure how to feel about it. She had some personal issues at the time and used him as a self esteem boost. They never had sex, but it was implied and pics were sent. She has been a great gf to me. Should I forgive her past. She was single at the time. I also believe that if I was in the same position as her I'd had done the same so I'm being a massive idiot for judging her I guess.

    Of course you should. You can't judge her just because she had someone before you; most of the time, your SO's prior life is something you know exists, and you learn to live with it. Plus, you've said you'd do the same if you were in her shoes; being judgemental would be hypocrisy.

    It is, therefore, none of your business. It isn't your place to think about this, let alone feel it necessary to forgive her.

    There's nothing to forgive here. She's done nothing wrong. Malbon is creating a problem where none exists.


    Let's be positive, Malbon. Give us a list of all the things you like or love about her.

    Just to be clear do you believe she didnt for anything wrong in flirting with a guy who had a gf? Or that it shouldn't bother me because it's her past? Could you be in a relationship with someone that had cheated in the past? (She didn' cheat, it' just a question).

    Forgive her for what? She didn't owe you anything when you weren't together. Deal with it.

    everyone has a past and we all make mistakes as human beings. since she was not with you at the time, it has nothing to do with you so let it go. you cant judge people on who they once were so look at who she is now and decide whether or not she is worth being with based on that instead of irrelevant historical events which may or may not have happened

    This is ridiculous, Your gf does not require your forgiveness! As has been said before, it happened before you two got together and therefore is none of your business.

    It’s rather concerning that you feel you have the right to pass judgement over something she did in the past while she was single.

    no i see where you're coming from. it's snakey behaviour for her to go after a taken man and not respect his gf. flirting is one thing but sending pics is a bit unnecessary. if it was the guy that started it then i don't think it's that bad. ultimately it's not the worst thing in the world and i think you should let it go but i can see why you find it concerning as it could be a red flag for future behaviour in relationships.

    People on TSR tend to look past everything. Forgive this, forgive that, it's all normal behaviour, you're being irrational, etc etc

    No. There is perhaps nothing to 'forgive' here, since you weren't an item at the time, however those actions do speak a lot about her character. Up to you if that's the kind of girl you want to pursue and she hasn't changed.

    It was him who started fliring with her first. She feels guilty and ashamed for doing it and when I found out about the flirting they' had before me (he was her coach so they still spoke although professionally) she cut all ties to him. Would this make a difference to you?

    This isn't even an issue, stop judging her past and be thankful for what you have got now.

    That's a good question, about being with someone that's cheated in the past.

    Yes, I'd have no problem whatsoever having a relationship with someone that's cheated in the past.

    I could even, in the right circumstances, have a relationship with someone that's cheating on me now. It all depends. Nobody is perfect. It all depends on their balance of good points and bad points. To put it simply, if someone treated me like a prince when we were together but cheated on me, I'd be inclined to understand things from their point of view. If they treated me like dirt when we were together, I'd probably have dumped them by the time it got to the cheating stage and would, 100%, dump them as soon as any cheating came to light.


    We are all entitled to grow up and make mistakes on the way. Flirting with a lad who already had a girlfriend is such a minor mistake / human thing to do that I wouldn't see it as a black mark against her.
