Actress/singer Idina Menzel has confessed getting back into the dating game "sucks" after splitting from her husband Taye Diggs.

The couple parted ways last December (13) after nearly 10 years of marriage, and now Menzel has opened up about the next phase in her life, including being a single mother to their four-year-old son, Walker.

Menzel tells U.S. radio show Valentine in the Morning, "It all sucks. I don't want to keep introducing him (Walker) to people and having him form bonds and then take them away, you know. It's bad enough his mom and dad are getting divorced."

The Broadway star knows first hand of the effects of divorced parents, as her own mother and father split when she was a teenager.

She divulges, "I went through it when I was 15 years old. I keep telling myself, because I feel so badly for him, it's better that he's four and a half than when he's 15.

"He has two parents that love him very much and we want to be great moms and dads. At 15 I was too aware, I thought I was an adult, and I got in the middle of everything and I took on the stress for both of them."

Menzel and Diggs wed in 2003 after meeting during the Broadway run of Rent in 1995.
