Lockdown made me see old female pal in new romantic light – is it just hormones?

DEAR DEIDRE:  SINCE being in lockdown I’ve started to have romantic feelings for an old friend. 

We’ve been there for each other through life’s ups and downs. She’s 28 and has been working in Australia for a year. She stayed longer than planned because of the virus.

I’m a guy of 29 living alone. My feelings towards her have changed. I’ve even had sexual dreams about her.

She’s due back next week. Do I tell her I have these deep feelings for her and what if she doesn’t feel the same way? Would that be the end of my friendship with her?

Is it because I’m a hot-blooded male coming out of lockdown that has made me like this?

DEIDRE SAYS: You have some reasonable questions and you need to be sure of the answers before you declare your deep love.

You have been stuck on your own during lockdown and an active imagination may have played a part in this. It is natural to fantasise but that does not mean these feelings are lasting.

Your friend has been away a long time. 

Take the time to get to know each other again and see how you feel then.
