Gone, thanks for the input/advice ladies
I like monkeys, personally.
I say go for it of you feel its the right choice to make for you and your daughter. I'm a firm believer in how drastically people could change. I stuck around with someone who had a 'women' problem and just couldn't seem to be with just one girl. Its been a long hard road but he's grown and I've grown with him and we have a wonderful relationship now and a beautiful son. I know its a lot different then a drug problem but believe when a person is ready they'll come around. And in the end it doesn't matter what anyone thinks. If you think he's changed then give it a shot.
The only thing that worries me is that you said, "He was worried that I was still crazy." That seems like he slightly blames you for what happened in the past when he should be taking responsibilty for his own addiction and actions. In reality, he should be thanking you. I see nothing wrong with persuing a relationship but I would tread very litely. Also, keep in mind that if you do go away for a weekend, it is not a real life situation. Weekend vacations are stress free and your relationship will be different than if you were going about your day to day life. Does he have a job, is he able to help support you and your daughter? These are other things you should consider.
Ummm coconut cream pie?
