Easy... DON'T MOVE IN!! (Seriously, my ex was still going through his divorce and was dating online from Iraq, and had two different women trying get him to let them move in with him as soon as he got back! They got dumped fairly quick). Stick with just going out, no sex, no bedrooms, hold off on even hanging out at each other's houses for a while, no serious making out stuff. Just hanging out at movies, libraries, heck... DH and I loved just hanging out at the book store! Just avoid being anywhere that your logic might fail in the heat of the moment.. stay fairly public for a while so you can't just suddenly give in and start making out, then give in and wind up in the bedroom! Don't introduce the kids yet, either. Once you do that, you are getting to a serious point.
