I want to get back with my ex but do I have to admit I had sex on our break?

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE had rebound sex with a friend and feel so guilty that I could do that to my ex.

My ex and I had broken up two weeks before, but still, I feel so bad.

She’s 23 and I’m a guy of 27. It’s not the first time an argument has ended up with her telling me we are over.

I hooked up with an old college pal. She’s 25 and we used to have a friends-with-benefits relationship.

We were catching up after she had broken up with her boyfriend.

We went for a coffee and then she came back to my flat for some wine, one thing led to another and we ended up in bed together.

I feel so bad now and it’s made me realise I really want to be with my ex.

But if I tell her, she might want nothing more to do with me.

DEIDRE SAYS: Well, don’t tell her. Honesty is usually the best policy, but in this case, you weren’t together.

You may feel relieved of the guilt but dumping it on her is bound to make her miserable.

You’ve now realised that your ex-girlfriend is the one for you. I hope you can make things work.
