I've been lurking in and around the RPW for a few months now, and I am so thankful and happy I was able to stumble upon it.

Before discovering RPW, I had a feminist mindset with regard to dating, sex, marriage & career. I had a very masculine take on things. I came on strong and I engaged in FWB type arrangements.

I am currently working on myself now -- adopting rpw & feminine values. Since then, I have been changing a lot of the ways in which I approach dating, and general interactions with men. I've also had a change in my priorities.

I struggle with guys I date asking me about my past. I realize now that it does decrease my potential for an LTR and it has had a negative impact on my SMV. I don't know how to go about it. I don't know how to open up about my background without scaring them off, and becoming perceived as significantly less.

How do you think I should handle this?

I'm in my early 20s. I've never had an LTR before, and have only had FWB type arrangements (with a few number of guys).
