DEAR DEIDRE: IT doesn’t feel like my ex-girlfriend wants to be friends – though she says she does.
We split up two years ago and have a seven-year-old girl. I am 36, she is 34.
I made some bad mistakes in our relationship. I cheated on her and spent money stupidly, so it was fair enough she dumped me.
I’ve not had a relationship since and I still love her. She says she has forgiven those mistakes and we can be friends but I doubt she means it.
She blows hot and cold with me. She tells me about chatting up other men and meeting them, which she knows hurts me.
At times, it is like she hates me. All I want is friendship but she treats me differently from her other friends.
DEIDRE SAYS: You two need to have contact for your daughter’s sake but it sounds like your ex is still smarting from the way you treated her.
Tell her you are sorry and you realise she has her own life, but be clear you do not want to hear about it.
I am afraid she obviously sees your relationship as over. My e-leaflet Moving On can help you.
