Dating an ex felon
I'm certain there are many people who've gone through a troubled period in their lives and ended up being convicted and sent to prison but have somehow managed to get their lives back on track and left their past behind them.

However, simply deciding that there is a problem based on the single fact that the person is a criminal is a form of absolutist thinking.
It does not take into account that there are people that have committed crimes or been convicted of crimes that you might want to date.
Don't write off a date just because of a pesky criminal record. Many people would say that there are dangers of dating a criminal and even advocate checking criminal records of online daters.
