I’m a divorcee aged 54, while he is 57.

We met three years ago and got on like a house on fire – in and out of the ­bedroom.

If I’m honest, it was the best sex of my life – totally uninhibited.

But then his daughter let it slip that his girlfriend before me was only 25 – exactly the same age as my eldest daughter.

It made me feel sick. I hadn’t thought he was the type to chase after young girls.

Now I can’t stop thinking about it.

I’m slim but have a middle-aged body and know I can’t compete.

DEIDRE SAYS:  Just because he found a younger woman attractive, doesn’t mean he can’t fancy you.

Remember, he is with YOU, not her.

They didn’t work out, quite possibly because he wants more than a young body.

Don’t let your insecurities spoil what sounds like a happy and fulfilling relationship.
