DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend and I have been together for two years – I’m 31 and she’s 28 – and everything was going well until we had a drunken chat.
We were getting frisky and I asked her who her secret crush was.
She told me she fancied my dad and our relationship has not been the same since.
I told her I had a real thing for Kay Burley, the newsreader.
But her answer threw me – she said she fancied my dad. He’s 52.
You can imagine how that killed the mood instantly for me, and now I feel so weird about it.

She has laughed it off and can’t understand why I’m so freaked out.
She tells me I should be pleased because we look alike.

DEIDRE SAYS: The fact that your girlfriend has laughed off her admission shows she really isn’t that serious about your dad.
Perhaps you are fantasising about your crush, so you assume she is doing the same about your dad.
From what you have told me, her crush sounds entirely innocent.
