When people have hurt us it sometimes takes time to trust. Even when the person we love isn't the one who hurt us. Trust is the basis of all relationships and is very important. You want him to know that you trust him. Does he know about you ex and how he hurt you? Maybe this will cause a dialogue between you that will get you on the right track. I'm really glad that you've found a great guy who love you. Don't be afraid to love him completely. I know it may take time.
Not all guys are the same. Maybe you should think about whether you want to take the risk with this guy or not. It will all depend on your heart. Try forgetting your past relationship, and start with a clean one. Good luck.
Just be you if you feel sceard get your guard baack up and try again in the next week or so and when you are happy leave it like that
