DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend’s mum messaged me saying she was putting an end to our relationship – and that my boyfriend was in complete agreement with her.
I’m shocked and confused. When I spoke to him the day before, he said he didn’t want to break up with me but his mum might try to force him.

He turns 19 next month. I’m 18.
His mum told me not to contact him any more.
I asked him once before why she didn’t like me. He said he didn’t know and that she was just being overprotective.
DEIDRE SAYS: You deserve better than him simply giving up on you because his mum told him to.
He is of an age to decide for himself but if he is still being swayed by his mum, that tells you all you need to know.
You are better off finding this out now rather than further down the line, when you will have had more time being treated as second-best.
