Stop Talking About Them
Talking about your ex all the time will put a hindrance on your dating life. Yes, your ex-spouse might be in your life because of the kids, but OMG, no one wants to hear about them all night. Move on without them and leave the relationship behind for good. And stop being a mother for a hot second. "We all have children, but let’s not make the entire night about our kids, their accomplishments, and what they ate for breakfast," Martinez added. The past is not your future. Set up a goal for the date that you will not dwell on your ex. There will be a time for this and think of it this way, you wouldn't want to hear about their ex all the time either. Remember, honesty is only refreshing to a point, otherwise zip it.
