DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE similar mannerisms to my girlfriend’s violent ex, so she dumped me.

She is stressed because of coronavirus and is over- thinking everything.

Her last relationship left her damaged but I’d never raise a hand to her. She’s 25 and I’m 23.

I’ve seen pictures of her ex and admit we do look similar, but that’s not my fault.

I haven’t met her for weeks but we FaceTimed yesterday. We agreed to go for a coffee when things start opening up again.

Is there anything I can do to reassure her?

DEIDRE SAYS: She may have been attracted to you initially just because you do share visual characteristics.

Many of us have a physical type we are drawn to. If you think your relationship has real potential, suggest she gets help to deal with what sound like flashbacks.
