You might believe that you're completely over your ex and ready to meet someone new, only to panic and disappear as soon as the new relationship starts to get serious.
That wouldn't be fair to the other person, so be sure to give yourself some time to heal before starting anything serious with a new romantic interest.
If your relationship with your ex isn't emotionally resolved for both of you, then it's a bad idea to date before the divorce is final.
If you're still seething with negative emotions about the end of your marriage, it's going to be hard to hide that fact from anyone you're interested in dating.
Dating while separated can be just what you need or the last thing you need.

No date wants to hear all about how evil and crazy you think your ex is.
Too much negative talk about your ex is unappealing on its own, but it can also make it sound like you hate all women.
Your ex might be willing to accept that the marriage just wasn't working out -- the divorce might even be her idea -- but if you start dating before she's ready for it then she can make things very difficult for both of you.
