We just met this man tues day he is the officer for the apartments we live at, he has been over to dinner and we took our children to the park together we went over and talked with him for little bit yesterday. He is a very nice guy but Im worried he may be too nice, the day after we met him he said anytime we need him to he would baby sit our son he offered to let me drive his car when i get my license which he also now trying to help me get. He brought me coffee yesterday and we talk a lot not just me and him, he and my husband also.. While i am happy to meet such a kind and generous person i am a little concerned should i be? He is newly divorced so maybe he just needs some friends but i don't know what do you all think.

The divorce may have something to do with it. I have a new neighbor who is the same way. He is just a really nice guy, and recently divorced. He just started talking to me one day and now we talk every day. He is outside a lot and comes over to talk if I go out. He shows me stuff they are doing to the house and even donated left over building supplies to my church. He's nice to my kids and DH too. At first I was a little weirded out by it, but I realized it was because Im just not used to having neighbors who go out of their way to talk to me. I don't even know what the people who live across the street look like. Just get to know him a little better. My best friend in the world for 10 years started out as my neighbor. She acted the same way. Kinda freaked me out at first, but she is super cool. We stayed friends after we moved.

His med might be making him extra happy. If he just started them after the divorce he is probably still adjusting to them. Plus, if he is depressed, and it's a new thing for him, he may just be trying to snap out of it. And sometimes doing nice things for other people makes you feel better. I wouldn't let him babysit though. It's way too soon. BTW, not all counties do background checks. If they do they are basic. There was recently a case here where a cop got charged with sexual assault on a teen girl. His employment check was clean. They didn't bother to do a check of where he lived before he moved here, where he had a record. If he is new to the area or hasn't been a cop for long (and it makes you feel safer) I would do a check. BUT realize that he will probably find out about it if you choose to do one through the county. Here you get them at the court house. Try online first.
