DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE my boyfriend’s been away at university, our relationship has fizzled out.
Now I want to break up with him but I’m scared how he’ll react.
I’m 19 and he’s 20. We’ve been together since sixth form.

I do care about him but we hardly ever see each other except on Zoom, and the relationship is stopping us from living our lives fully.
I know ending it will hurt him but I’m sure it’s for the best for both of us.
