Dating dilemma (or I am overthinking)

I have started speaking to a new man on a dating site we get along well. After a few chats he said I think you may know my ex wife and I believe you are FB friends? He had noticed me commenting on her posts in the past.

My dilemma is do I go on a date with him...the lady in question I grew up with, we don't see each other socially and once in a blue moon bump into each other at Tesco and stop for a chat. I did not recognise him as her ex husband as I didn't ever see them as a couple. They have a child and split up a couple of years ago.

Would you go on a date knowing that you knew his ex wife and also if it developed it could be awkward for others (thinking of my mum if she bumped into the ex's mum)

Realise I may be overthinking this (am guilty of this at times)

I would say that you're definitely overthinking it. It's good that he's mentioned it now but I really wouldn't let it worry me if I liked him

Thanks for replying! I've not even met him yet and getting myself in a tizz about it. We might not even hit it off! blush

I think it's honestly fine. Good luck!
