I’m a 37-year-old man and I’m so clingy it’s broken up my past three relationships.
My wife left me two years ago, taking the kids, saying she needed space.
I work in a distribution centre and don’t earn much money. I have a small circle of friends who ask me out but I want to see my girlfriend as much as I can so I save for that. The downside is I’m sitting in the house wondering what she is doing.
My girlfriend, who is 34, is a nurse. She doesn’t always want to see me after work as she’s exhausted.
It causes rows because she says I make her feel guilty. I don’t want to lose her.
DEIDRE SAYS: Think back and work out why you’re so insecure about relationships.
What made you clingy in the first place?
Did your parents split up? Was one of them unreliable towards you, so you could not feel loved for yourself?
Look for interests you can afford to develop – like getting into running or doing voluntary work – that will give you another focus.
