I’ve met a man, but daughter says she will cut me off if I start dating again

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE met a man I really like, but my 15-year-old daughter has said if I start dating again she will cut me off and move in with her dad.

I’m 40 and have been divorced from my ex-husband for four years.

Our marriage ended abruptly, and our daughter didn’t take it well.

It’s been a hard adjustment, so I’ve tried to do all I can to support her.

But no matter what, she is convinced that eventually, I will get back with her dad.

A few months ago I met someone at work, and it’s been going really well.

He treats me amazingly, and I see a future with him.

How do I tell her? I’m afraid she will never forgive me.

Get in touch with the Dear Deidre team

Every problem gets a personal reply from one of our trained councillors.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is unfair that your daughter has put you in this position, but it’s important you remember she doesn’t call the shots.

She is probably afraid of anyone coming in between you.

The best thing to do is to reassure her that you love her, and with time she will come to accept your new partner.

I’m desperate for kids but my husband won't give me a baby
