This week marks the UK cinema release of the highly anticipated new film, Think Like A Man Too. As such, each day this week, we’ll pose a question inspired by the relationship-based comedy.
Dilemma 3: The partner with the player past
Zeke’s (Romany Malco) player past makes his girlfriend Mya (Megan Good) uneasy
You meet a new man/woman and you get along well. You share the same sense of humour and in discussing your hopes for the future, you discover you share the same values, in that you both want a committed relationship as you feel it’s time to ‘settle down’.
One evening, you go out for a meal and just before the starters arrive, your partner nips to the loo. While they’re gone, a fellow diner comes over to you and says: “I just wanted to wish you good luck.”
Confused as to who this stranger is, you say: “Excuse me?”
The mystery person continues: “Let’s just say your date has… been around – I should know. But I’m guessing you didn’t know that. So, like I say, good luck.”
Completely taken aback, you can’t hide your shock when your partner returns to the table. After telling them that you just had a visit from someone alleging to be their ex “who was keen to tell me you’ve got a bit of a past,” your partner looks sheepish.
You ask your partner if there’s anything you should know, to which they reply: “My past it my past. I’ve done some things I’m not proud of and yes, I’ve been with… several people. But that’s all in the past and I’m committed to you now.”
We want to know: Would it bother you if you discovered your new partner once had a reputation for sleeping around/ being a serial player? Could you remain in that relationship or would your partner’s past bother you too much to stick around? Tell us your thoughts.
