Dear Dr. Romance: Divorce Sucks
Dr. Romance answers questions from a post-divorce single mother.

If your ex is a good father and cares about his daughter, you should not let your jealousy stand in the way of their relationship. Your daughter should not be punished for what your parents did or did not do. Instead of desperately searching for another relationship, turn within and develop a good, healthy relationship with yourself. Let the neglected and abused little girl inside you know she is safe now, that you'll take care of her, and learn to do that.
