I like doing my own thing and I'm happy being by myself with my own hobbies and interests, but he didn't really have anything and just wanted to be with me all the time. On top of this, he didn't like me hanging around or even talking to other boys in college, even classmates. I held myself back from talking to people and making friends. Despite my doubts I still had a huge amount of love for him so I turned a blind eye to this. Things took a big change over the past year when I noticed him losing patience and getting irritated with me for no reason. When we fought, he would call me stupid and other hateful things - it was verbal abuse and there were some minor incidents of physical abuse also. I started not enjoying being around him. After six years, I called it quits and left him. It was a huge decision, one I had thought of making a lot over the past two years. He didn't take it well, he was almost inconsolable and threatened suicide. We had been broken up for only three weeks … [Read more...] about Dear Mary: I called it off but my ex has moved on so fast
I m so lonely
I've been divorced for two years and I haven't had another relationship since I separated from my husband; as much as I'd love another partner, it just doesn't seem to happen for me. When my partner walked out, it was a huge shock and I still can't forgive him for what he's done. Most of my friends are in relationships of their own, so going out with them isn't always possible and I feel so depressed at the thought of spending my life alone again. Even though my children and grandchildren visit, I still can't help feeling like nobody wants me. I'm not a bad person and I'm not bad looking either, but I'm 49 and feel that I am on the road to being sad and lonely for the rest of my life. RV FIONA SAYS: Please don't give up like this. I know it must be difficult to stay positive when you feel this way, but if you present yourself as a sad and miserable person, you're not going to be attractive to others. It is hard to make a new relationship happen but sometimes the harder you try, the … [Read more...] about Ask Fiona: Two years after my divorce I still feel so lonely and depressed
MY boyfriend and I have been together for three years. I'm 19 now and was only 16 when we got together – he's now 25, so there's quite a big age gap. I was a little naive, so was happy for him to take the lead on things when I was younger but, as I've got older I've learnt a lot and have ideas of my own. The thing is though, he's forever telling me what to do and he thinks he knows best because he's older. It's really starting to annoy me now – and I think he's getting worse as he tries to tell me what to wear and who I should be friends with. He can get quite aggressive when I don't agree with him, too. Three years is a long time to invest in someone but I'm getting more and more uncertain of my feelings for him. Do you think it's time I left him? NY FIONA SAYS: I think you're right to be concerned. The fact that he gets aggressive with you when you don't agree with him is worrying. And the fact that he tries to control who you make friends with is a big red warning light … [Read more...] about Ask Fiona: Should I leave my controlling boyfriend?

Carl “The Jackal” Frampton talks loneliness and mental health ahead of his April 21 showdown at the SSE Arena. Referring to a 2016 campaign which saw Carl team up with the likes of Paddy Barnes, Michael Conlan and host of Irish League players to get the message out to young men that it is ok to talk about their feelings, Carl emphasised: “I would encourage anyone going through a difficult time to open up. You know, everyone’s been there. “I get lonely too. I am in a sport where I am away from my family a lot of the time, and at the minute I am staying with two other boxers who are in the same situation as well. “We’re always talking to each other about life and just opening up, it’s so good to be able to speak. We counsel each other, without even realising it.“I have felt down in the past, and I’m sure lots of other people have. Opening up helps give you that wee bit of reassurance, it lets you know that you have people there … [Read more...] about Carl Frampton: I can feel lonely and down
