After 6 years of being single I have started dating great guy , when he comes over my 6 year old all she wants to do is be with us and does not let us talk, how can I make her understand he is not taking me away from her

I would agree with Shawnn. If this is not a guy you are going to be marrying very shortly I would not be having your daughter around him at this point in your relationship. Make sure this is the guy you want her to be her dad and attach to before having her see him as a father figure and become attached to him and then you break up and this is another guy that is in and out of her life.

Ah, but he IS. If you are not integrating her, but yet you are bringing this man into her life, he IS taking you away, to an extent.

Unless you have been dating him for a long while, and you are convinced that he's going to be around for a good long while, it's really not fair to your daughter to bring him around in the first place. Kids get very attached very easily, and they get hurt even easier when the guy leaves.

Personally, I wouldn't be bringing men into my kids lives that I wasn't sure was going to be 100% committed to me, and them, for the rest of our lives.
