DEAR DEIDRE: IS it acceptable for a boyfriend to wait a whole day to reply to my messages? I don’t think it is.

I met this guy two months ago. He’s 27 and in the military. I’m 23 and I’m a hairdresser.

We had three really nice dates when he was home on leave but now he is back in the barracks away from home.

He says he can’t message all the time because he is busy with work.

He might be, but sometimes he doesn’t reply to a text until the next day.

He can’t be working such long hours that he doesn’t get a break to go on his phone.

I’ve asked him if he has gone off me but he says, “No, it’s all good. I can’t wait to see you again.”

I think I might be wasting my time here.

My uncle abused me when I was ten, was it my fault if I instigated it?

If he says he’s busy, assume he is and give him the benefit of the doubt.

A few more dates face-to-face will tell you whether this guy is worth sticking around for. I hope he is.
