17 People Confess The Things Their Past Relationships Taught Them

"One major lesson I learned from my last relationship is that I will never date another girl who doesn't share my interests."

Some people look on their past relationships and see them as time wasted with the wrong person. Breakups can leave us feeling a lot of complex emotions, but they can also teach us a lot, too. Dating the wrong person can help us figure out what we need to know to date the right person. 

In a series of confessions on the Whisper app — an online platform for users to anonymously share their stories and secrets — people revealed some of the lessons they learned from their past relationships. Although these relationships are over, it's clear from their responses that their experiences with their exes were valuable. For some, it taught them the importance of dating a person who shares their interests and values. Others realized they may have some personal issues to work out before they can be in a committed relationship with someone new.
