So my sisters husband introduced me to his friend...  but he lives in a different state 12 hrs away and is a single dad of 5 kids....  very nice though and has a good job, very good with his kids.  Just dont know if I could do the LDR thing....  dont know if i should try to work things out with bd or see what possibilities may lie wth this guy.  I just am not sure right now and  dont want to lead the new guy on.  i feel like my heart is with bd...  please advise....

Why not?  Make a new friend, have some fun.  It could progress to something, it may not.  You are not leading him on.  To date someone doesn't have to lead to a relationship.

I don't think that there is anything wrong with dating other people if you are single. As long as you both start the getting to know each other process knowing that we may just end up as friends there is nothing wrong with making new friends. And as I'm beginning to realize the easiest friends to talk to are the ones who "wear the same shoes".

just talk to him i guess... i mean do you really see a future with someone so far away? and i thought you still loved bd.... is your heart really open to something new? don't torture yourself, be honest with yourself.

If your heart is with your child's father then you need to get that right first , I don't believe its smart to jump into something new when you have unresolved feelings elsewhere... If you two (the new guy and yourself) really hit it off then I would start off as friends first and make it very clear as to where you stand relationship wise this way he already knows up front and you won't be leading him on. ... good luck doll

sounds like a great guy to get to know though I wouldn't go looking for anything other friendship.


I would try working on your issues and fears so you can try and work on your relationship with your DD's Father. Most especially if he has not give you a completely in your  face 100% reason to kick him to the curb.  From your posts so far it doesn't seem like he has. Though you definitely need to start talking about things and what you both want and expect. From a relationship and each other.
