my ex and i split up when my daughter was 5 weeks old, she's now 10 months old. an old friend of mine wants to take me out, i really like him, he has always been a good friend of mine but i feel guilty for wanting to go. my ex is supposed to get my daughter everyother weekend but until this last month (after i threatened to take him back to court to get sole custody) it was more like once every 5 or 6 weeks. i only have one friend that i would trust to babysit but she is going through a divorce right now and i won't ask her to do that for me. my friend has offered to take both me and my daughter out for a family friendly evening instead of the usal kind of date but i don't want my daughter getting attached (especially since her dad hasn't shown much of an interest in her until this last month) to him then have things not work out. part of me really wants to start to move on with my life but the other part thinks it's too soon and my daughter's to young. any thoughts??
