DEAR DEIDRE: MY family hate my ex for the way he’s treated me and will go mad if they find out we are back together.
I am 26 and have loved my boyfriend since day one. He is 28. We were so happy but he had a row with my brother over something stupid and walked out on me.

I was distraught and from that day on my family hated him for hurting me.
My boyfriend and I got back together but I had to juggle my family and being with him. He then walked out on a job my dad had found for him because he said it was boring.
He’s been through lots of jobs and I thought that was irresponsible. I moved back to my parents but had to promise them I would not get back with him again.
Now we are seeing one another secretly. He has promises to change but can I trust him?
DEIDRE SAYS: People do not change easily and only when they are ready to for their own sake, not to please others.
Reading your story I don’t feel hopeful – and I think you know in your heart that your family is probably right.
Ask your boyfriend for details of his specific plans to change. If they are convincing, your family may come round. If not, you should move on.
