I thought I found Mr Right but he is my pal’s ex

DEAR DEIDRE: A GUY I thought could become very special turns out to be the ex of a close friend of mine.

I am 28 and I split up with my last boyfriend two years ago.

I decided to try a dating website rather than just wait for Mr Right to come along.

I was pretty anxious about it at first but then I met this lovely guy.

We had planned to meet up and see how we feel about one another face-to-face.

Then I realised from something he said that he’s the ex-partner of a good friend.

Their relationship was some time ago and I didn’t even know her then – but I am wondering now whether I should back off and cancel the meeting.


DEIDRE SAYS: I do not support this “girl code” notion that somehow a woman should be able to veto an ex’s future relationships.

They are no longer together, so he is free to find a new girlfriend. She has most likely moved on, too.

Talk to him about it when you see him. What is important is to be safe when you meet. My Love Online e-leaflet explains.
