I do everything for our daughter while my girlfriend visits her ex

DEAR DEIDRE: WHILE I do everything to look after our two-year-old daughter, my girlfriend goes and sees her former friend with benefits.

We’ve been together properly for nearly a year.

She’s been married before and is obsessed with talking about her ex-boyfriend and this other friend.

She’s 26, I’m 29.

She rarely spends time with us. I do everything from cooking, cleaning, feeding my little girl and changing her nappy.

My girlfriend added her “friend” on social media and she constantly chats with him and visits his flat.

When I tell her how I feel and that I’m worried for our future, she dismisses me saying they are “just friends on social media”.

She insists I’m making a big deal of nothing. I don’t trust her.

DEIDRE SAYS: You don’t deserve this treatment and neither does your daughter.

Find a moment to tell her that you want to be a proper family. Suggest she has at least three nights a week without her phone and focusing on her family.

If she still pays more attention to her friends than you, then you may have to accept this relationship isn’t right for you.
