How do I com­pete..?

Q

When my long-term part­ner said she was leav­ing me, I as­sumed it was for a man – but she’s moved in with another woman, who the kids call Aunty.

I don’t know how to com­pete or re­spond. My ex wants me to ac­cept we’re over. How am I sup­posed to tell peo­ple what’s hap­pened with­out look­ing like a proper tool? Gareth, 39

For starters, flower, you can’t com­pete. Maybe your ex has been strug­gling with her sex­u­al­ity for a long time.

You must try to move on. The kids seem happy if they’re call­ing her new part­ner Aunty. And your ex is happy, so tell any­one who asks that it just didn’t work out for you.

It’s not your fault, now learn to ac­cept it like your kids have.
