My new boyfriend is amazing but I am so worried he will cheat on me

DEAR DEIDRE: MY new partner cooks, cleans and tells me he loves me all the time. He is amazing.

I know hand-on-heart he wouldn’t cheat on me but I am terrified of being hurt again.

I was in a bad relationship previously, which lasted ten years.

I am 34 and my new partner is 23.

I would describe our sex life as very healthy.

I would love to have a baby – that would make me so happy.

But I am frightened my neediness for love might become too much for my partner.

I do everything I can to fight against it but if we go even two or three days without sex, I worry he doesn’t fancy me any more.

Each time he goes to the gym or goes out with his mates, I worry he will find a beautiful, slim girl nearer his age and leave me.

He gets very frustrated with what I am sure is my paranoia. I want to stop. Please help me.

DEIDRE SAYS:  It is not easy when someone has had a previous unhappy experience.

This fear of being hurt is a self-defence mechanism telling us that it might happen again.

But you risk driving a wedge between you and your partner and pushing him away.

I am sending you my support pack on Jealousy, which explains how to go about managing these damaging feelings.
