I know it's wrong but I'm in love with my neice

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE developed romantic feelings for my niece. I know it’s wrong, even though she is not a blood relative, but I can’t help it.

I’m 49 and she’s 27. She’s my brother’s stepdaughter and we’ve always got on well as friends.

She has always messaged me and confided in me about problems she’s had with her parents or boyfriends.

I think she sees me as a kindly, cool uncle, someone she can trust.

But as she’s grown up and into a stunning woman, I’ve started noticing how attractive she is.

I’ll admit I have had sexual fantasies about her but I know she doesn’t feel the same.

The problem is, I can’t stop thinking about her. If I send a friendly text and she doesn’t reply, I feel sad and annoyed.

I’m unhappily married, bored and lonely. Her messages gives me a boost.

CAREER TEARS

I hate having to go to work – it's making me depressed

DEIDRE SAYS: Not only are you over 20 years older than this woman, she is also your brother’s daughter, and she trusts you as a friend.

As you know, nothing can ever happen between you. And if anyone finds out your true feelings, you risk blowing your whole family apart.

Please see a counsellor. My support pack on Counselling will tell you more.

If you’re unhappy in your marriage, work on this with your wife, or choose to leave and start again.

Don’t contact your niece again – delete her number if it helps – and try to keep your distance until you can overcome these feelings.
