I keep causing arguments and I fear my lovely boyfriend will get fed up and leave

DEAR DEIDRE: I NEED to change from being my grumpy usual self with no sense of humour or I am going to lose my lovely boyfriend.

I am 24 and my boyfriend is 25. I’ve known him for a long time.

We will be having a nice evening and then I start arguing over nothing at all.

I can’t take a joke and it seems I have absolutely no sense of humour.

It’s like I am a train crash waiting to happen.

We live together, I cannot imagine living without him, and I could not be happier.

I would honestly just like to be normal. Every time I apologise and promise to change. He says he will believe it when he sees it.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as though you are tense and expecting to be attacked all the time so you are very defensive.

Did you have a parent or sibling who used to tease you mercilessly when you were young so you are wary of so-called jokes?

Even so, you can control how you react now.

If you feel your gauge rising, go and put the kettle on for a cuppa.
