Sex & the Single Woman: Is Honesty A Bad Idea?

I am a pretty open person when it comes to talking past relationships or even just guys I’ve dated. In general, I’ve found that they are pretty open in return. But every once in awhile there comes a time when being comfortable talking about things of the past transitions into an awkward conversation.

Today it occurred to me later that there is definitely a line, and we might have passed it. So then what is the standard? At what point is too far? I pride myself on not being afraid to address the past, but is that foolish? Should we instead keep everything private?

I don’t know if the acknowledgment of these conversations will make me censor myself any more, but it certainly has me thinking. Am I really just hurting myself by being honest?
