When it comes to getting to know someone, there are certain things that should just be left unsaid — At least, in the beginning. You're on a first date and the guy asks you why you got divorced. Do you tell him the entire story, which lasts forty minutes, or do you brush it off and re-focus the attention on the present? If you tell the entire store, you're doing dating wrong. 

YourTango Experts Senior VP Melanie Gorman is joined by relationship experts Marla Martenson, Carin Goldstein, Jen Duchene and Kelly Rudolph to discuss the different topics that shoud be avoided on a first date. Your list of medications? Skip that convo. Childhood abuse? The first date is not the time for that talk. 

Watch the video to learn more about the topics you should avoid and how to avoid them. At the end of the day, dating is about fun so make sure you have it!

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
