Sex & the Single Woman: Outrun Your Past?

I have so much to learn about relationships, but there is one thing I can say have burned into my memory: the past never goes away.

I have said numerous times that I like to stay friends with my exes, and this has both good and bad repercussions. One such repercussion is the fact that years later, people still recognize that we were once a “we.”

This doesn’t bother me, but it does make me wonder if the skeletons in my closet will ever be locked away for good. I am not ashamed of my past, but I am all for moving on with my life. This is not made any easier when my past is constantly brought up in conversation.

So how do you outrun something that will always be too fast?
