i've been seeing a girl for the last 2-3 months now and all is going well, she has a 9 month old baby at the moment which doesn't bother me as i'm great with kids. but the father of the child has gotten back in touch but she has reasured me that she doesn't want to leave me for him as she doesn't like him and doesn't wanna go back there, plus he hasn't been around till now. but before him getting back in touch after her send an email, i wanted her to be my girlfriend put this has happened. my friend has told me if i like her i shouldn't let him get in the way of us and get with her. but when i seen her he wanted to get back with him until she had to say she's moved on from him. but he fled after finding out he was to be a dad and is only taking responsibility now.
do i not let it get in my way and get with her?
is there anyone out there that has been in the same situation as i'm going through?
