DEAR DEIDRE: TWO years ago, when I was 30, I fell madly in love with a 33-year-old married woman.
She promised to leave her husband but, after waiting patiently for her for a year, I got tired of her excuses and ended things.

Now I’m seeing someone else, a lovely woman aged 32, who should be perfect.
Yet I can’t stop thinking about my married ex and, if I’m honest with myself, I don’t love my new girlfriend as much.
I still feel the pain of our break-up. I want to be happy and don’t want to lose my current girlfriend.
How can I make myself love her more? I feel as if I’m going crazy.
DEIDRE SAYS: It can be really hard to get over a broken heart. You have unresolved feelings for your ex and it may be that you got together with your current girlfriend too soon.
Try to focus on the good things in your relationship, and remind yourself of the valid reasons why you ended it with your ex.
If you still feel stuck perhaps you should end it before you cause more heartache. Read my support pack, Moving On. Some counselling could also help – contact tavistockrelationships.org.
