First Dates star reveals harrowing reason she ‘went off the rails with sex’ as a teen – leaving her match stunned 0 33

A RECENT episode of First Dates saw one half of a set-up couple left gobsmacked after finding out a harrowing life detail about his date.

The first dater of the Thursday, August 11 episode was horse groomer Fabia, from Warwick.

She came onto the Channel 4 dating show looking for love, after being single for five years.

The 26-year-old admitted that she couldn’t date a man who lived in a city, and needed someone who understood her slow, countryside life.

Fabia also explained that she’s from a small, rural area, where everyone knows each other, and eligible single men were in very slim pickings.

Enter George, a 37-year-old fellow countryside dweller, who loves clay pigeon shooting.

Hailing from Leicester, George had also explained he wanted someone who was equally in love with the countryside.

The pair instantly hit it off and bonded over their love of animals, as they both were proud dog parents to black labradors.

Once they were settled down and getting on well, the conversation turned to family.

George asked Fabia if she had any siblings, to which she promptly replied: “Ah, mood killer!”

She then explained to a slightly confused George that she did have a sister, but she passed away nine years ago due to skin cancer.

Speaking to the cameras seperately, Fabia said: “Losing my sister had a massive impact on me.

“I didn’t know where I was going, what I was doing.”

The dating hopeful then explained this to George: “After I lost my sister, I went off the rails a little bit.

“I didn’t do drugs or anything like that but if someone paid me the slightest bit of attention, especially at the Young Farmers Party, s**t happened.

“It gets around, and you’re then a sl*t.”

Although he was slightly taken aback at first, George seemed to understand where Fabia was coming from.

She told the cameras separately: All of my first experiences were around that time with boys.

I was trying to find someone to replace her but you’re not going to find that in – A – a bottle of alcohol or – B – in a bed.

“I just lost the closest person to me and I needed something to let off steam and feel needed.”

Whilst Fabia claimed she had “killed the mood”, she and George got on like a house on fire on the date.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
