Has watching dad beat mum as a kid damaged my relationships as an adult?January 11, 2019
I wonder if it has damaged me because I can’t stay in relationships.
I’m a woman of 28 and have been single for the past two years.
It always seems to be the guy who ends it or makes an excuse not to turn up.
I am constantly being let down by men, even when I think it’s going well. I suddenly receive a text making some lame excuse.
It has got to the stage that I’m not sure I want to be in a relationship – ever. I’m so tired of being let down.
DEIDRE SAYS: For most women, their attitudes to men are affected by the example set by their father.
But we can learn not to let our future be controlled by our past.
You expect to be treated badly by men and may subconsciously choose men who let you down, just like your dad used to. My e-leaflet Finding The Right Partner For You will help.
