DEAR DEIDRE: DESPITE being together for six months, my partner won’t introduce me to his children.
He is 60 and was married for 30 years. His kids are now in their late 20s, but he says it is too early for them to meet me.
They know about me and he jokes that I’m the “unmentionable one”.
I met him a few months after his divorce, so I had nothing to do with his break-up, which is amicable.
I am 52, and generally a very confident and independent woman, but this is making me feel so insecure.
It hurts and makes me wonder if I’m wasting my time with him.
Is he ashamed of me, or just stringing me along?

DEIDRE SAYS: Your partner may feel some guilt over splitting up with his children’s mum and starting a new relationship so quickly.
My leaflet When Parents Fall Out explains more about children’s feelings and needs, no matter how old they are.
Talk to him and explain you are worried that you’re wasting your time. It may be the jolt he needs.
