Father of my child convinced me to have a baby – only to run out on us

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I got pregnant five years ago, I had a great job and was not ready to be a mum. I was only 22.

The baby’s dad convinced me to have our baby girl – only for him to leave me before she was a year old.

He said he didn’t love me any more.

I asked him if it was because of my baby weight and if I wasn’t attractive now but he wouldn’t answer.

I feel I gave up everything for what he wanted, only for him to leave me.

I worry I will be alone forever because of my lack of body confidence and my fear of rejection.

DEIDRE SAYS: I totally understand how deeply you believe your daughter’s father betrayed you. But that is a heavy burden for a little girl to carry if you feel she ruined your life.

Talk to Family Lives to be sure she is not suffering for her father’s callous actions (familylives.org.uk, 0808 800 2222). He didn’t reply when you assumed he was leaving because of your appearance.

It is more likely he just wasn’t up to the challenges of parenthood. My e-leaflet for Lonely Single Parents can help you rebuild a social life and look to the future.
