Girlfriend is too clingy and the spark has gone.

Dear Coleen, I'VE been unhappy in my relationship for a while now but I can't find the strength to leave my girlfriend.

I think we rushed into things too quickly as I now see her only as a friend and try to avoid sex with her whenever I can.

She is very clingy and gets angry if I make plans without her, and has all but stopped me talking to any girl mates that I did have.

I did break up with her before, but it broke her heart and I felt so guilty I got back with her the next day.

To be fair, she has been great to me, helping me when I was sick and believing me over her so-called "mates" when they started spreading lies about me cheating on her.

The spark has gone for me, though, and surely it's better to be alone rather than staying with her and lying to her about being happy? Please help.

Coleen says YES, it is. Like you say, the spark has gone and you can't stay with her through guilt or because she was nice to you when you were ill. That wouldn't be fair.

You have to do the decent thing now and tell her it's not right for you.

It's never easy to break up with someone and, yes, it's going to break her heart, which isn't nice.

However, it would be worse to string her along and then end up seeing other people behind her back.

It's going to end at some point, so it's better to do it sooner rather than later.
