I love my boyfriend but we've never met or even had a video chat

DEAR DEIDRE: I LOVE my boyfriend but I’ve never met him, seen him in person or on our video calls.

We have been dating for a year after meeting online.

He doesn’t drive but says that when he can find a way to travel, he will come and meet me.

I’m 25 and he’s 31.

He tells me he loves me every day but when I ask to see him, he always comes up with some excuse.

He says he’s shy.

My friends think he’s not who he says he is.

I’m not sure but I think if he really loved me, he’d want us to see each other.

I was hurt in my last relationship. Is this going to happen to me again?

DEIDRE SAYS:  Trust your instinct. There is no good reason why he wouldn’t want you to see his face.

As you are beginning to doubt his sincerity, ask to see him online within the next week so that you can move your relationship on.

If he refuses, explain you can’t continue.

It will spare you any further upset.

My support pack Love Online explains the pitfalls of meeting people this way and has advice on how to keep safe.
