Hey, I'm new to the group and I just in a bind. My daughter's father and I split when she was 2 months old. I want to start dating again, but I don't know if I can do it. It's not that I want to get back together with him, because that will never be an option even if he asked. It's just that I work in the criminal justice system and I see alot of crimes committed by the mother's boyfriend and I just can't imagine taking that risk with my daughter's safety. My friends and family are starting to pressure me about it because they don't like seeing me alone, but they don't understand my fears. I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem?
