Relationship Expert: Marni Kinrys Explains Why You Keep Talking About Your Ex

Relationship coach, dating expert and men’s ‘wing girl’ Marni Kinrys is speaking up about relationships with past loves - and whether or not it’s a good idea.
 
“My clients often bring this up to me, and while it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation, I can often very clearly see their reactions and emotions when they’re speaking, and that tells me a lot,” says Kinrys of the touchy subject.
 
“It totally depends on what gender you are talking about - when men are over their exes, they don’t bring them up… if a guy is constantly bringing up his ex, in a not so nice manner and somewhat emotional way… he’s not over her. 
 
“Women, however, are the opposite.  If she’s over her ex, she WILL talk about him.  She does this to subtly explain to her new man how she works and what she wants and what didn’t work for her in the past… it’s called third-wheel exing, bringing a third party into your dating life to help things move along more smoothly this time around.”
 
Whether it’s for closure, concern about bad traits popping up again in the new relationship or someone simply isn’t over the former relationship, “you need to be on alert if your partner is still regularly talking to his or her ex, good or bad. He’s supposed to be spending his time building a solid relationship with YOU. If energy is being expended elsewhere, that’s a red flag.
“This is where I tell my clients about strong, straightforward and honest communication, no matter how awkward it may seem. If this person is right for you, the conversations will be comfortable and ultimately make you feel better. If you can’t manage this, then maybe this is a sign that the person is not the right one for you.”

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally. His bride-to-be, Catwoman, stood him up at the altar and he’s in trouble with the law for possibly botching a case. So, if ever there was a time for Batman to turn to a higher power, it might be now.You can read the full preview here.
