  • i have ot say a word of caution. a grown man who is a stranger to a child of that age is suspect when taking such an interest. and if you only just broke up with your ex you should also be cautious of yourself. you need time to heal before contemplating meeting someone else

  • I think you have a date for Saturday? lol
    Keep your guard up though...that he's not just a freaky pedophile trying to get close to your kid. I know..thats an awful way to think but never can be too careful..lots of pervs out there.
    Chances are, his motives are just innocent and he's trying to impress you...the momma :)
    On Saturday, offer him lunch...something simple, not like you were tying to go out of your way or anything. Like have lunchmeats,cheese,lettuce,tomato for sandwhiches and maybe some chips and dip..and homemade lemonaide ;)
    Good Luck and have a good time! :)

  • Yes, please be careful...He could be genuine in wanting to help your child, trying to get some time with you or any other number of things(some not so great)...I would say no, and if he wants to get to know you then he will ask you out...I wouldn't involve my child right away...

  • This brings up red flags for me. I think he may be more interested in your daughter than you. My advice, thank him for the offer but decline it. This is just a little creepy to me.
