My boyfriend says he’s scared to move in with me because of my daughter

I’m 47 and he is 49. We’ve been together for two years and get on brilliantly.

My 20-year-old daughter lives with me but she’s no trouble. Out of the blue he said he felt sure he could live with me only if my daughter didn’t live with me as well. I said that she’s staying put. He says he loves me and we will work through this, but his attitude has worried me.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is a big ask to expect him to share a home with a 20-year-old girl who’s not family to him. Don’t see this as showing he doesn’t care enough for you.

Suggest he starts staying over regularly a couple of days at a time. Then he and your daughter can both see how comfortable they are meeting on the landing and over the breakfast table.
