DEAR DEIDRE: AT my age you would think I could spot the users.

I’ve been married, divorced and have grown-up children, yet when a man came into my life a year ago I trusted my instinct and put everything into our relationship.

I put everything into our relationship

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

Looking back, I see I was a complete fool. I’m 53 and he is 56.

I paid for everything – meals out, drinks, a whole new wardrobe for him.

I pretty much funded his whole lifestyle.

He said he was struggling financially after his ex- wife “took him to the cleaners”.

But I’ve since found out he still has plenty of money

He dumped me out of the blue and is now parading about with a new girlfriend.

It is good you saw his true character before you invested any more in him.

Simply because you are 53 doesn’t mean you should know everything.

Be kind to yourself and accept it will take time to come to terms with this.

I am attaching my support pack Mend Your Broken Heart to help you to pick up the pieces.
