DEAR DEIDRE: MY boyfriend confides in his female best friend. I don’t think he fancies her, I’m just sad he doesn’t talk to me.
I’m 17 and they are both 18. They’ve known each other since primary school. I only met him a year ago.
Sometimes I feel left out. If he’s upset about something, he tells her, not me. When I ask him what’s wrong, he’ll say: “It’s nothing.”
But then I’ll see him messaging her or calling her.

DEIDRE SAYS: Tell him you like his best mate but that you feel left out and want to be as close to him.
He’s probably just used to telling her things. Or maybe he’s embarrassed to look vulnerable in front of you.
So if you can show him how supportive you are, he’ll learn to trust you more.
