I'm waiting for my girlfriend to cheat because I don't think I'm good enough

DEAR DEIDRE: I’M paranoid that my girlfriend is cheating on me. We’re both 18.

If I call her and she doesn’t pick up or is on another call, I imagine the worst and my stomach goes into knots.

I grew up in care and don’t have a high opinion of myself, so I always picture her with a guy who’s better-looking or smarter than me.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your lack of confidence and low self-esteem is the culprit here.

Growing up in care has affected your ability to trust, but you can get help. Contact The Mix (themix.org.uk).

Remember, your girlfriend has chosen to be with you – so have faith in the positive things she sees in you and build your confidence and your relationship.

My support pack on Raising Self-Esteem should help.
