    Hi all,

    I separated from my partner at the end of April. He was very controlling and manipulative hence the separation. Since then, we have seen eye to eye far less then expected. I started dating a guy 2 months ago and I would like him to meet my daughter. My ex partner doesn’t know I am dating again. When would be best to tell him? DoI tell him I’m dating again on a separate conversation to telling him I’d like my new partner to meet our daughter? Any advice would be appreciated. I have her the majority of the time hence why I would like my new partner to meet her. I’m June, July and August my ex partner has only had her 17 nights out of the agreed 24.


    Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    You don’t need your ex’s permission to introduce your new partner to your daughter. You don’t even have to tell him you have a new partner. Do it whenever you feel ready but your dating life is your own business. I suspect, if he’s controlling, then the less he knows about your personal life the better.

    Which of your friends and family or partner you both spend time with doesn’t ever need to be a topic of conversation until something significant happens which will impact your daughter, like you move in with someone or get married.

    I think you do not need tell him you are dating again but you should work your way around the guy meeting your daughter, You might have to let your ex know about that part and how you handle such requires a lot of maturity.
