Hi, I know it is difficult but your ex is entitled to introduce his child to whoever he wishes.

He has held off introducing your daughter to his friends but now seems to have found a partner who is more long term.  When your daughter is with her dad, he can decide who he leaves her with, as long as there is no known safeguarding risk. Regardless of what might be ideal, you do not have the right to meet the new girlfriend or to set criteria.

On this one, the law says your ex has the right, on his time, to decide who and when.  I know it’s hard but you have at least a decade of co-parenting to go so better to try to be amicable and calm.
