DEAR DEIDRE: I WENT on a great date with a woman, sharing drunken passionate kisses as we walked home.

Now she seems to have gone cold on me.

She’s 46 and I’m a man of 42. I’ve been dating online for over a year.

This woman seemed great and I thought we were at the start of something good.

But last week she admitted she wanted to take things slowly ­– and with that, I felt we’d moved backwards.

We met at the cinema but when I tried to hold her hand, she pulled it away and when I got back to her place, she kissed me on the cheek and went inside.

It wasn’t the end to the night I was expecting.Am I wasting my time?

DEIDRE SAYS:  Maybe not, but it depends how long you are prepared to wait.

She may have been hurt in the past, which makes her wary, but the alcohol on your first date meant she dropped her guard.

Give her the benefit of the doubt and try to get to know her better for another couple of dates. Then if you feel it isn’t going anywhere, move on.
