Does a person's past factor in to your decision to move forward with a relationship?.
I have to say no. People have to go through something sometimes to learn where they are going. If they are willing to grow from their past why should I not move forward. As long as you live life learning and growing. I don't think that their past would hinder me from moving forward with them. Just like everything else, there are always exceptions to the rule. But you have to be a strong person to really decide if you are ready to deal with a shaky past. A situation doesn't make a person. The person has to make him/herself grow from situations.
