  • Are you dating a man? Because 5 months broken from her father doesn't seem like very long for you to be with another man long enough to know him well.

  • when he puts a ring on your finger. Call me old fashion but, after my divorce, my current husband and I didn't live together till a week before the wedding. I was taking any chances of putting my boys through another break up. This time I wanted to be sure, and a marriage is a little more difficult to walk away from then just a live in. If he loves you and your child then he should make a real commitment to you.

  • be careful who you have around your daughter. if it was just you id say move in. She is old enough to get pretty confused. I would wait till you know he is gonna be something more then a boyfriend.

  • when you are married. Dont bounce around like that. Think about what she will be learning when she gets older if you keep doing that. Also you should take some time to yourself. I know its hard but its the only way you can really focus on your daughter and your needs.

  • Never...You have a child and the first concern should be her. What's wrong in you getting your own place for you and your dd? Since you're fresh out of a relationship,what good is it to rush things with another man? Give yourself and your daughter time to adjust to the newness of her not having her dad around before introducing her to another man and possibly the disappointment of another break up.

  • just so everyone knows i was with this person 5 years before i we broke it off. and i was with my daughters dad for about 3 years. so it is not that i do not know who he is. thanks for all the advice.
