Dating felons

I was surprised at what she told me; “talk to him, ask him about his life, and find out about his sentence and the terms of his license”. She told me many people turn their lives around after release from prison. I asked him why he hadn’t told me the truth, asked him what his license terms were, where he’d been in prison. He apologised and admitted he was struggling to find a way to tell me about his prison sentence. Wes wants to move on with his life, he’s served his time and needs a chance to rebuild his future.After all how on earth do you tell someone (new and that you’re developing feelings for)? In the time I’ve known him he has only ever been hardworking, caring, kind, loving, supportive and generous.I have to relive it constantly the rest of my life: something i'm trying to put behind me and is irrelevant anymore? Wow man...spoken like someone who has had dealings with these types of scum. Ok, so because you think you've somehow atoned for a crime, this means that the world should back off and let you be? Was it a silly juvenile mistake, from an addiction or a crime of violence. Did he shoplift from wall mart as a teenager or beat a up someones granny.

The fact that he concealed the truth is proof that he has issues confiding VERY important things to you.

And I beg to differ on that count, with the poster before me. You have every right to know since you were practically, or were, engaged to him.

If it wasn't for my younger son finding the sex offender website for me I would have married a former child molester without even knowing it. Understandable that friendships wind up being relationships so as friends people confide much to each other. Seriously just what all do you really expect me to have to disclose? Judge Mathis was a troubled teen and has even done time in jail.

Imagine how I would have gotten harrassed for something I hate so much. I dont know if I would be so quick to judge, there are two sides to a story. So the question: How is it that you didn't find out about the criminal past of your boyfriend when you were friends? I already knew him and trusted him before dating him. One of my good friends introduced us and vouched for him. I would think he was living a straight life since, especially while he was with me, but I realize now, you just never know. There's bunches of stuff i could talk about but i don't bother because there's no point. His mother refused to bail him out and left there to learn his lesson.

Both in our 40’s, he wasn’t my usual type but there was something about him. I did some research, read things online, looked at the Unlock website and forums.

Then I found out via a mutual friend that he had been in prison! I confided in a few close friends, most of them warned me to steer clear, told me I’d made the right decision.

Some things he’d said then made sense; He had no passport! But I couldn’t sleep for a week, I tossed and turned and felt so unsettled.

He too was disappointed with my decision, but understood.

but better to know then instead of later when feelings are deeper and assets are commingled.
