It is a really huge step to even consider starting dating after you have been through a divorce or have lost a spouse. There is a lot of emotional baggage and fears that accompany this decision. Yet, it is a decision that has to be taken if you don't want to die sad and alone. If you have the support of your friends and family, it becomes much easier to look for love a second time. But there are a few things you need to avoid doing.

What to Avoid When You Start Dating After Divorce

- Talking about your ex all the time. If you are still so into him, why are you dating at all? Even if you bitch and bicker about your ex, it shows that you are still obsessed with him. Are you?

- Talking about your kids all the time. So you have a kid or two, let him know and that should be the end of it. After all, he's come to meet you and is looking for some romance. He's not come to look for readymade kids who'll call him daddy! That should be the icing on the cake!

- Don't give him a hard time about his exes or divorce. Stop your curiousity. Again, this is not why he's come to see you. If he wanted to talk or bitch about his ex, he could have just gone to a shrink!

- Discussing money is not a great idea right now. It is an important matter of discussion when you two decide to take the relationship to the next level. But if you've just started dating, money should not be discussed much.

- If you have any health problems, keep them to yourself for now. He really doesn't want to know how constipated you get without tea or how you feel bloated in the mornings!!! He's not your husband...yet.
- Sex might be on your mind and his. But don't make it a topic of conversation unless you want him to think of you as slutty!
