Ask sis Dolly: Prison romance

My prison romance.

I'm 35 with two daughters aged eighteen and ten. I've been very unlucky when it comes to relationships. I always pick the wrong guys so I decided to be single for a while. A friend suggested online dating and I met this guy who is currently in prison for accepting bribes at work. He will be released soon and says he loves me. I love him too. Should I give this relationship a try or let it go before I get burnt?

I guess the difference is that you know to a certain extent what you're getting into. The reality is that, regardless of the criminal record, we never really know how a relationship will turn out. The foundations for a good relationship are honesty and open communication. But besides all that, you really need to trust your gut on this one. There is nothing anyone can say to confirm if he's a good guy or not. Make sure you are clear about who you are and what you want from a relationship and ensure that your daughters are safe.
