I am divorced and have met a great new guy. However, he has a problem with my past - like from 30+ years ago! I mistakenly was honest with him about the number of partners and that I had never really had a long relationship except my marriage, which was abusive - for many years. Now he continues to bring up "my nasty redneck ex", all the men who used and abused me over the years (really wasn't like that at all, but he is convinced). I don't know how to make him drop it! I don't want to hear about that one especially bad mistake anymore. I regret being honest with him. How do I deal with this?
