DEAR DEIDRE: I CAN’T win with my partner. She moans that I want sex the whole time when she isn’t in the mood, and then on the rare occasion I turn her down she moans that she’ll get frustrated and have to look elsewhere.
I am 29 and my girlfriend is 27. I love her but she is like a child.
Last night I made a move on her in bed and she just snapped at me, complaining that all I’m ever interested in is sex.
She makes me feel really awkward. I can’t seem to win.
I don’t think she has ever stuck up for me or had my back and instead prefers to question and criticise everything I do. It’s exhausting.

She is, however, great with our two children, and I do love her, but I am sick of the arguments.
It all feels so one-sided.
DEIDRE SAYS: It seems she has been making you positively miserable. I know you love her, but do you feel she loves you?
Anyone who contradicts everything you say is doing it out of insecurity. The only way she can feel better is by making you look wrong.
Unless you can make her understand that she is destroying your relationship, then things won’t change.
