I organise get-togethers for us all, I give lifts, I help them out when they have a problem or need a hand. In spite of all this, I cannot find the girlfriend I long for.

I met a woman at a social event recently, asked her out and exchanged phone numbers. But the next day she backed out saying she must have been half asleep.

Yet again my efforts came to nothing ,so I have volunteered for the Christmas shift at work but feel so low.

DEIDRE SAYS:Working over Christmas is a good plan.

Try to find new interests and join a group to share them. You could also look for new friendships.

Most relationships are based on being pals to start.

My e-leaflet Finding The Love Of Your Life will help.
