look up any word, like timebomb:
 
1.
The act of talking or obsessing about ex-girlfriends/boyfriends or ex-spouse. This phenomenon typically happens when the person talking has had a recent breakup and is looking for sympathy or answers. Also a great way to end a date.
Wow, the date was going really good until she started opening up the ex-files.
