My boyfriend tells me I look like his celebrity crush – he should love me for me


MY boyfriend thinks it’s a compliment to tell me I remind him of Maria Connor from Coronation Street, but it upsets me.

I’m 20 and he’s 21. He told me he thought we had the same morals in life.

When he went on to say she is really fit and sexy I got really cross.

I didn’t mind that, although I’d rather not be compared to a soap character.

But when he went on to say she is really fit and sexy I got really cross.

When he looks at me and tells me he loves me, he should only have eyes for me and not be thinking of some silly celebrity crush.

He has made me feel he is making do with me.

DEIDRE SAYS: He will have genuinely been trying to compliment, not upset, you.

Of course we all admire other people’s looks – it doesn’t mean we want to be unfaithful with them.

He is with you in real life.

You may be suffering with low self-esteem, so talk to your boyfriend about your worries and ask for his reassurance.

I’m sending my support pack on Self-esteem which has tips on how to feel more secure.
