I can only move away from my abusive dad if I agree to be an older man's girlfriend

DEAR DEIDRE:  THE only way I can afford to move away from my abusive dad is to agree to being an older man’s girlfriend.

I am not attracted to him but he is my only hope.

I am 30 and lived in Portugal until a year ago.

I moved to get away from my ex who was physically, psychologically and financially abusive.

I now live with my even more abusive dad and I feel as I did when I was a child.

My male friend is 59. He lives in Portugal, where I’d like to return.

I have asked him to lend me the money short-term but he gets angry or refuses to listen and just goes on about us living together.

DEIDRE SAYS: Please don’t feel pressured into moving in with this man.

He’s not a real friend if he is prepared to pressure you into a relationship, and presumably sex, that you don’t freely choose.

That’s just another form of abuse.

It’s better to find support to help you become independent, emotionally and financially.
