DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex-boyfriend has met someone new and I’m heartbroken, though I have a boyfriend.
It’s four years since we split but we stayed friends and have regularly met up since then.
But now he’s fallen in love with someone else and says he can’t meet me or even speak to me any more.

He says being friends was holding him back and that it’s best to leave the past in the past.
He was my first love. We were together for seven years, from when I was 17. I dumped him for the guy I’m with now.
I’m 28 and realise I am still in love with my ex, who is 29. I should never have broken up with him.
I miss him so much and can’t understand why he’s gone cold on me.

DEIDRE SAYS: Perhaps your ex still held a candle for you, which is why he stayed friends. But now he has met someone else, he finds being around you confusing and awkward.
You miss his friendship but also the attention. You say you are still in love with him but if that were true, you would have realised sooner.
