My boyfriend dumped me out of the blue

Fiona Caine is here to help if you have a relationship, sexual, marriage or family problem.

My boyfriend ditched me last month without any explanation or discussion.

We seemed to be so happy together for about nine months and then suddenly, out of the blue, nothing.

I feel completely gutted, mainly because he won’t talk to me at all.

I tried ringing him and he hung up, I even went round to his place and he shut the door in my face.

Then, last week, I went out on a date with someone new; a man who has been asking me for some time. I thought we got on well but after all his asking before, he dropped me after just one date.

Now I’m worried there’s something wrong with me that’s stopping me from keeping boyfriends. How do I find out? AW


You've had a bad experience with your last boyfriend and you are probably on edge, so your new date probably picked up on this.

This may have made him anxious too and, if he'd been asking you for some time, he probably had high expectations of the date. If he did end up feeling anxious, he might not have wanted to repeat the experience.

You do deserve an explanation from your ex-boyfriend but it doesn't look like you're going to get one.

If he isn't man enough to give you one, he isn't worth bothering about, so take a deep breath and put that relationship behind you.
