Sticking to the past

The past can be forgotten and don't think that those bad things will be repeated. Do not see the new date as your ex and the preference and character of the date need not be compared to your ex. Let new date be a new starting as everybody is unique, you can even find the same traits interesting in your new date.

Being very less available
