ADVICE: Would You Date An Ex-Con?

Would you date someone who served time in Jail?

A friend of mine is going through this right now.

She met a guy on a dating site about two months ago, and for once things have been going great. She has a terrible history of dating guys who are... bad news. In fact I have never seen her so happy! Here comes the but... 

This weekend he confessed that he has spent time in prison. He didn't go into details, just that it wasn’t for violence or pervy reasons, but said he served two years for something stupid he did when he was a teen (he’s in his late 20s now). He insists he’s not that person today. 

She says he's a great guy, they have a TON in common and have so much fun together. 

She doesn't know if she should give it a chance or dump him. What should she do?

My thoughts: doesn't it depend on what he specifically did? Also, she has SUCH a hard time finding good guys. So I'm tempted to tell her to ride it out and see where it goes. At the very least, he should spill ALL the details about everything. He needs to earn her trust. 

Lori thinks she should probably cut it off and wonders why it took 2 months for him to bring it up.
