Dr Miriam: I long to forgive cheating lover; LETTER OF THE DAY.

Byline: Dr Miriam Stoppard

I'VE been in a relationship for 10 months. In that time I know my boyfriend has cheated on me at least once and lied about it.

We had a huge row because he kept in contact with his ex. He stormed off straight back to her and now she says she's pregnant with his child.

He claims he slept on her sofa but I know what a strong sex drive he has and I don't think he'd hold back if she was offering it.

We've been apart for six weeks but five times he's come looking for sex and I've given it to him.

I really love him but he won't give me a straight answer when I plead for us to get back together. He just says he doesn't know, we'll see. I'm having such a hard time letting go because I feel we should be together and I invested a lot of time and love in our relationship.

GET your head out of the sand. Doesn't the baby on the way prove he's a cheat and a liar? His main priority is easy sex and he's been lucky to find at least two gullible women to let him have it.

I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have a whole harem tucked away.

Your qualms that he was in regular contact with the ex should have been an early warning that you were backing a loser.

It's time to get tough with yourself and stop giving him sex in the hope of keeping him to yourself.

As long as you continue to think he's worth running after, you'll never attract a faithful, worthwhile man.

And the more you run after him, the more he'll know you think it's OK for him to ignore your feelings and degrade you and other women desperate enough to put up with it.

At least you're not pregnant. Your rival can't erase him from her life the way you can, if you have the sense.

A leopard doesn't change its spots and, in years to come, I bet she'll rue the day she let him into her bed.
