When you first start dating someone, it's tempting to want to get into the nitty gritty right away. After all, if you see a future, putting restrictions on what you talk about can feel wrong. However, if you are wondering what not to talk about in a new relationship, there are a number of topics that are better suited for later on, when your connection is more established, experts say. These conversations should be had, but just at a more appropriate time when you have a more nuanced understanding of the person you are dating and the relationship.
"I believe in being open and transparent, but I think there are some topics that should be reserved for later," therapist Celeste Viciere, LMHC tells Bustle. When you've just started dating, you might not want to reveal everything about yourself too early on. While differences of opinion are to be anticipated between two different people, there are some heavier topics of discussion that are better suited for later when you both know you're on the same page, and ready to discuss them, Viciere says.
Although these topics should be discussed eventually, you might want to wait until the relationship is a little more solid before discussing them. Here are seven topics you shouldn't bring up right away in a relationship, according to experts.
