I cheated but is girl taking me for a ride? Life, love and angst Anne Diamond answers your questions.

Byline: Ask Anne

Dear Anne

My girlfriend and I split up a couple of months ago because I was stupid and had a fling.

Now I'm doing everything to win her back and we are seeing each other almost regularly again.

My friends think I am stupid because I am making all the effort by taking her to dinners and buying her presents. She is just accepting what I do for her.

They say that she is now just leading me on. I don't know if they're right or not. I want her back but am I really being stupid?

But often friends - if they are real friends who want to see you happy - can be more objective and it might be wise to listen carefully to their fears.
