7. He secretly wants to compare his new girlfriend to his ex-girlfriend
It’s a little cynical, but some guys take a new girlfriend to the same places in order to compare her to their ex. If your boyfriend jokingly mentions, “My ex was really good at karaoke,” he might be trying to provoke you. Whether it’s going to karaoke or scuba diving, you wouldn’t want to lose against his ex in an unspoken contest for “the partner with whom he has the most fun.” So, always give it your best when you are on a date.
