Constantly updating your dream wedding Pinterest board? Don't reveal that. Have very strong feelings about your ex-wife? If you want a second date, it's best to keep that information to yourself.

We're just scratching the surface here. Below, HuffPost Divorce readers share the one sentence that would kill the mood instantly if said on a first date. Read them but please don't repeat them.

2. "It's just ridiculous, the wage gap isn't even REAL."

3. "'I don't like kids'... when I have kids."

5. 'I Googled you.' Even if you totally did, don't say it. It's creepy."

6. "Unless we're having a discussion about biology, any use of the word 'females' to describe women and girls is a no-no."

10. "'My marriage ended because of my ex. I was a great spouse and parent and she was just bad at both.' Blame is not sexy."

20. "No, I don't have a gun... I always carry a knife."
