L sounds like a fantastic person to co-parent with, as clear communication, kindness, dedication, being slow to anger, and his other traits will all reduce the stress of parenting. I'm fortunate my husband has all those traits and he's been a wonderful father.

I think those are the foundation of a great relationship, even if it's a strictly platonic one for you two. Best wishes to you both!
