My doctor and I fell for each other but he's suddenly gone distant

DEAR DEIDRE: MY favourite hospital doctor has fallen in love with me, and I feel the same. But now he has said he can’t see me.

I’ve been seeing him for two years because of my skin problems. He’s a dermatologist.

He’s in his 50s and married with kids – I noticed the photos on his desk – and I’m 39, single and looking for love. Whenever I have an appointment with him, he flirts with me, smiles and winks.

He’s never touched me, although he held my hand for a long time when he shook it, and he holds the door open for me, which he doesn’t for other patients.

But the last time I had a face-to-face appointment, it was with his colleague, and she said he’d handed over my file.

When I bumped into him in the waiting room, he seemed very nervous and said he is now only seeing new patients. I know this isn’t true. It hurts so much that I’ll never be able to see him again.

DEIDRE SAYS: Sometimes, when someone takes a special interest in you, it can feel like they have romantic feelings – especially if you really like them. You have no proof he feels the same. He’s always acted professionally.

Even if he did have feelings, doctor-patient relationships are forbidden.

Talking to someone could help you get over this. Contact Supportline for confidential help (supportline.org.uk or call 01708 765 200). My support pack, Finding The Right Partner For You, may help you meet someone.
