I have found being honest is the best policy but only when you feel comfortable enough in the new relationship to do so.
I found Claire’s law is a helpful tool to check someone out.
I have been in a new relationship for a few months now. He is very understanding and completely different to my abuser. I was very wary of getting close to someone new and if there was even the slightest hint of control I would walk away.
I met my new partner on a dating website but I take things very slow with him and have done from the start. Your past experiences will always have an impact on any new relationship but if he is worth keeping in your life then he will understand. Xx
