DEAR DEIDRE: I don’t know what to do about my neighbour. He is making a play for me.
I got to know him quite well during the pandemic. He and his wife offered to bubble with me as I live alone. He’s 53 and I’m 49.
A few weeks ago he came round for a glass of wine as his wife was working late. We ended up having a long chat about relationships, and he admitted he wasn’t happy in his.
As we said goodbye at the front door, he lent in for a kiss and I didn’t push him away.
A few days later he texted me saying he’d wanted to do that for months.
We’ve been talking for a few weeks now. He’s even suggested he’d leave his wife for me. We’ve had a few steamy kisses but nothing more.
I think we’d be a great match, but I hate the thought of pulling another couple apart.
DEIDRE SAYS: He may have talked about leaving his wife, but I often get letters where this has been promised and not followed through.
Logistically, this wouldn’t be easy either – it would be uncomfortable for you all to continue living next to each other.
Take some time to yourself to work out if this is what you really want.
