    Default *Spin off from my other thread* dating an ex convict

    So would you date someone who has previously been to jail?

    Would it depend on the crime, so for instances you would date some one who was in there for drink driving but wouldnt date a person who served a manslaughter sentence?

    Nope. It takes a lot to be put in jail even for drink driving repeat offences etc. Making a mistake is one thing, making it enough times to get sent to jail? Not for me. Df is a cop though so maybe I'm biased.

    Nope. I know from my previous job that it really does take a lot for someone to be incarcerated (as pp mentioned).

    As for the offences mentioned in the OP, I would never date someone who drink drives. It is an absolutely senseless and irresponsible act, and it really revolts me. And naturally I wouldn't date a murderer...

    It would depend.
    People can be wrongly incarcerated and cleared.

    Yes, I would.

    IF I knew they were reformed and had proven it by staying out of trouble for a considerable length of time. It would also depend on the crime. If it was a violent crime and the circumstances were horrible then I wouldn't be interested (i.e.: I could forgive a provoked bar fight that got out of a hand, but attacking someone walking alone at night for no reason - no).

    As I said in the other thread, one of my ex's was in and out of prison during our relationship (still is) and I'm not interested in reliving that kind of life!
