My boyfriend has swapped hot sex for his Xbox – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE MY boyfriend’s immaturity is giving me panic attacks.

He is hooked on his Xbox and his toy helicopter which he flies around the flat like a drone.

 My boyfriend is more interested in his Xbox than me - he's like a 12-year-old
My boyfriend is more interested in his Xbox than me – he’s like a 12-year-old

He’s 26 but he acts like he’s a 12-year-old.

I’m 22. I fell out with my parents two years ago so I moved in with my boyfriend.

We couldn’t keep our hands off each other when we first met and our sex life was off the scale.

He’s really irritating now, playing with his boys’ toys.

If it wasn’t for me, none of the bills would be paid on time.

Whenever a bill arrives, I’m so scared I won’t be able to afford it, I walk out and have to breathe calmly to stop me having a full-blown panic attack.

If I say he’s childish, he says: “Look, I am who I am. If you don’t like it, leave.”

Our sex life has plummeted and I feel we should break up, but I don’t know where else I can live.

DEIDRE SAYS Insist he gives you his full attention while you explain how worried you are about your finances and your relationship.

Suggest he puts his gadgets away at least three nights a week – or you will go. My e-leaflet on Family Finances will help.
