His and hers dating
You can move forward with confidence if you know your new interest has truly left the past in the past. The heart needs to heal and the head needs to get clear. Every experience with you is a new discovery together, just the two of you. Listen carefully to the response and see if your confidence is bolstered.
If there are kids involved, of course there will be necessary coordination and conversation. It’s lousy to be compared to a former love—and your date knows better than to do it. Evidence that they have worked through (or are currently working through) lingering pain is a good sign. But creating distance online is a sign that the past has been left behind. Proper boundaries are in place with the ex’s family and friends. When this person says he/she is over the previous relationship, there are no actions that contradict the words.
And that’s something you can deal with just fine, because you, too, have significant others in your rearview mirror. Your date has the wisdom and sensitivity to forego references to his/her ex. This person doesn’t hide anything from you and doesn’t come across as defensive. If not, there is likely not much reason to maintain contact. Old connections can be hard to break, and maybe some of those relationships shouldn’t be ended altogether.

Because users are relying mostly on photos (although there is an option to include small text boxes on your profile) to get a sense of who they want to message, users go into each interaction without a lot of information.
