Exes can be a sore topic in a relationship. It's a tricky thing, talking about exes. Men aren't the most sensitive people on earth, in fact, they can be stupid about things like this. Today, this will be more for the men, we'll talk about exes and what NOT to say about them.
No-no Number 1: Never, in any given situation, tell your girlfriend that your ex is better, in any way.
Girlfriend: What was your ex like? Be honest.
Boyfriend: She was pretty, probably the prettiest girlfriend I've had.
Girlfriend: Oh. (pause)
Boyfriend: I mean, until you came along! That's what I meant! No, really! I promise!
Guys, when a girl asks about your ex and tells you to be honest with it. Be honest with your answer. But please don't put everything in superlatives, try to downplay the good points, and slightly highlight the bad.

No-no Number 2: Don't go spewing the words 'lifetime' and 'forever' when talking about your ex.
Boyfriend: No one can hold a candle to her. If given the chance to be with her again in my lifetime, I'd definitely take it.
Boyfriend: Until I met you!
With a statement like this, you should be alone forever. Keep this statement to yourself if you want to get laid during the course of your lifetime. No self-respecting girl would take you, unless she's trying to get back at the last stupid guy who hurt her.

No-no Number 3: Don't get caught.
You'd be surprised as to how many men are stupid enough to get caught. As a follow up to the boyfriend-girlfriend conversation in No-no Number 2, in case you still actually harbor feelings for your ex, just don't get caught saying things you shouldn't be saying.
