I’m not. I’ve never been interested in men in that way.

I’m 28 now and my mum died when I was 17. She was an alcoholic who abused me physically on a weekly basis, and once, sexually.

I’ve never been able to trust women because of this.

One of my friends said that because she’s now dead, I should be getting on with my life but I can’t move past this.

I’ve been out with a couple of women but it doesn’t get further than one date because I clam up.
