Dating an ex convict
..without that trust, a healthy relationship can't exist.
I don't think you have to broadcast your past to everyone you meet, or every single person who you may exchange 1 or 2 emails with on this site.
Like..stupid cos they could've put him away for a looooong time. Edit...sorry..saw you have "ex-convict" in your opening question.... ..someone seems genuinely interested in you..honest about it.
It is very easy to find out whether or not someone has a criminal record and I think you shoud be honest.
I went to court with him so I knew all the details..was just stupid to get into what he did and got busted.
I met a man on POF and in our first phone conversation he let me know he was an ex con. How long he had been out and what he was doing to change himself and his life since he got out.
We ended up dating for awhile and he's one of the best men I've ever known. Not everyone will give you a chance once they know.
That way, you have a chance to explain exactly what happened.
If they have to find out another way, they could easily misunderstand what happened and eliminate you as a potential girlfriend based on what they assume happened.
