DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex says we are over but I’m struggling to accept it.

I’m a 55-year-old man and she’s 45. We met online and were together for three years.

She wanted to get married but I’m a divorcee so I didn’t want to commit to somebody again.

She gave me an ultimatum, then she ended it. But I loved her and still do.

I’ve tried dating again but I can’t get over her. I put on a brave face for my family and friends but I’m in pieces.

DEIDRE SAYS: You sound so sad but why let a bad experience in the past wreck a potentially happy future?

If you get help to understand why your relationship went wrong – and how to avoid those mistakes – you could eventually get back together with the woman you love.

My e-leaflet on How Counselling Helps can tell you how to find a reputable therapist.

Let your ex know you are trying to move mountains (of misery) for her sake.
