I spent hundreds on a mini-break but my girlfriend complained the whole time

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM sick of being treated like a mug by my girlfriend. She expects the world and repays me by moaning about me to our friends.

She is 25, I am 24 and we’ve been dating for 18 months.

Last month, I took her on an extravagant weekend away for her birthday.

I was really looking forward to it but she was so ungrateful. She complained about the hotel and the restaurants, not once saying “thank you”.

When we got back, I heard her telling friends how “cringey” it was I’d posted a few pictures of her on Instagram.

I really care about her but I’m not sure I can put up with this much longer.

DEIDRE SAYS: Why should you? This is not how you treat someone you love.

Unfortunately, it sounds like your girlfriend is immature.

Tell her how her behaviour is making you feel. My support pack Standing Up For Yourself will help.

If she doesn’t make some positive changes in the next few months, it may be time to move on and find someone who really values you.
