Do I Tell Him Why I Got Divorced?

From Your Tango

When you begin settling into your new life as a divorced woman, you will start mingling with other singles and eventually begin dating. Many women struggle with what and how much to tell their dates. Remember: There is an important distinction between telling your new man about your divorce and telling him that you are divorced.

When dating someone new, make it clear from the beginning that you are divorced or in the process of divorce. Be honest. You need not say anything more. Casually bring up your divorce in a non-threatening way. You could even ask your date if he has been married before. Do not ask him questions about his past relationships, and if he asks you about your divorce simply reply, “I’ll tell you some other time. Right now, I would like to know more about you.” This shows that you are not trying to hide anything and that you have moved on.
