DEAR DEIDRE: I FEEL like a babysitter rather than a boyfriend because my girlfriend has no time for me.
We’ve been together for 13 years, after first meeting at school. I’m 32, she’s 29 and we have twin daughters aged five.
My girlfriend is a hospital nurse and has been working like a crazy during the Covid pandemic. But when she is around, she barely talks to me – and we haven’t been intimate for months.
In the evenings she would rather FaceTime her friends. I feel like my only purpose is to clean up and look after our girls.
If it wasn’t for them, I would have moved out by now.

DEIDRE SAYS: I am sorry you feel underappreciated.
But I am sure your girlfriend is grateful to have you keeping everything afloat at home, though she might be forgetting to show it.
It is important you address these feelings.
If you are struggling to have a frank conversation with her yourself, try couples’ counselling.
Relate (relate.org.uk) will be able to help you communicate how you feel.
I am also sending you my support pack Relationship MoT, which details steps you can both take to help reset your relationship.
