Do you mean ...

that no one can measure up to him because you put him on a pedestal?

I'm a little lost.

You have an ex, and you enjoyed certain portions of his demeanor.

You want to know if you look for them in your next relationship?

Is that right?

"If you have a love interest from the past still stuck in your craw because of certain things. Do you bring that forward into a future relationship."


Sorry... IMHO, if you still have a love interest from the past stuck in your craw..... you're simply not ready for a new relationship. You're not being fair either to yourself or the new person.

lol shes not stuck on anything all she is trying to say is she misses some of the traits he possessed and that sometimes she looks to match them with future potential dates. Basically she misses parts of an old relationship and is asking if other people miss things like that and do they look for that in their next potential mate.

It is... okay to feel that way, as this means you should again most likely have such a desirable connection... considering so many otherwise have lost complete hope in ever finding themselves somebody who can make them feel happy altogether.

There are so many of both genders who decided just to settle for those who are quite the dysfunctional such as being -overly- jealous as they eventually suspect everybody gets like that... and might even believe when a person doesn't react so hot tempered means the selected is not in love, which is in my opinion would be a poor judgement call if the trust is already there.

However, in being more a question of trying to figure out where to set the bar... is often the quite the challenge where the solution can be determined only after the chemistry holds up to the test of time.

Experiences from past relationships is how we figure out what we want and what we don't want.


I very much agree. There was one in particular who I could already tell was very manipulative... she tried to convince everybody that it was unfair for her to be compared insisting she should be given a chance to prove herself worthy, and just as predicted, she managed to get the approval of almost everybody believing the only reason why the man in question has been single fo so long was because of how -extremely- picky he is although quite deserving far as they were concerned. In short, he had soon collected a whole lot of evidence that stacked against and after showing it to his friends, both men and women... they all realised she was manipulative and he should end the date immediately... then she managed to convince them that they both at least should just have sex until either of them has found somebody else... he said no way because he learned what could happen... but still... even some of his lady friends kept encouraging him to allow. Needless to say... she was even more insanely determined to keep him despite their agreements set beforehand.
