Another edition of our newest segment of the show.... relationship advice, from the last person you'd expect to give that kind of advice. You'll understand when you hear it!
I am in my early 30s and dating a really nice guy I met about a year ago. The problem is, he has a child with another woman who he does not see or take care of. When I ask him about the daughter, he says the mother of his child is a difficult woman and he would rather forget them both and start a new family.
My close friends all hate him because of that – they say that if he is a deadbeat with one woman, he will be a deadbeat with me if I have his child.
Apart from that, he really is a good man. I just don’t know whether to take my friends seriously and leave him, or abandon my friends to be with him.
