DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER a messy break-up I had no choice but to move back in with my parents.
Now I’m back to square one and I feel completely lost.
I’m a man of 29, my ex is 27 and we were together for seven years.
Until now I had never imagined a future without her.
After our split we decided that it would be best if I moved out of our house to give each other space.
Since then I have felt so alone, and the reality of moving on has been heartbreaking.
Having to rebuild my life without her feels overwhelming and I don’t know where to begin.
While I have always been a positive person, lately I’ve been feeling down and lonely.
