I understand wanting to keep your carpets and furniture nice but this was crazy. You couldn’t even see them under all this ugly protective stuff. Plus I nearly fell down the stairs wearing oversized slippers and tripping on this protective plastic mat that was draped down the staircase.

Since then we’ve been seeing each other regularly and sleeping together.I’ve been enjoying the physical side of things and the attention from a younger guy, but never expected it to turn into anything more because he’s so much younger.Then, the other night, he told me he thought he was falling for me and how would I feel about taking things to the next stage and committing to a more seriousDear Coleen: My best friend treats me like an afterthought, it all seems so one sided nowI was surprised and it’s not what I want, so I said so. He left angry and I told him later that I wanted to call it a day.About a week after this happened he came into the bar with his friends, blanked me all night and sat huddled in a corner with his group, laughing.One of my waitresses told me she overheard them talking about me and he was describing our sex life and making horrible comments about my age and how desperate I was.Although I didn’t want the relationship to go further, I still really liked and respected this person and can’t believe he was so cruel.I feel humiliated and don’t know if I’ll trust another guy.What do you think?Dear Coleen: My husband gets drunk at parties and he’s embarrassing me in front of my friendsColeen says I think he’s showing his immaturity you knocked him back, his ego suffered a blow and he’s reacting in a really childish and cruel way by trying to show you up in front of his mates.So I’m sure you realise now that you made the right decision by not getting any more involved with him.

It can be hard to meet new people but remember it’s a numbers game. If you have a friendly chat with 3 new people every day and live to be 100 years old, that’s roughly 109,500 people, or far less than 1% of the population on this planet. At the end of the day if you chat with 3 people a day every day and just one person thinks you are cool per week, you might end up meeting a good friend if you keep on trying..
