The rich guy I am dating is just my back-up plan — I still love my lazy ex

DEAR DEIDRE:  THE rich guy I am dating treats me well but is just my back-up plan.

I love my handsome ex, who is broke but doesn’t look for work. That’s why I dumped him.

I’m 29. If my ex, who is 28, sorts himself out and gets work, I plan to leave the rich guy, who isn’t so attractive.

I want to have kids with my ex, who understands me perfectly.

We dated for five years and are in touch every day as friends.

But I’m feeling pressured by my new guy to marry.

He is 33 and loves me so much. Should I end things with him?

DEIDRE SAYS: I would say from what you tell me that neither man is the one for you.

Is it likely the guy you were with for five years is suddenly going to change and develop a work ethic?

But it is unfair to marry your present boyfriend – whom you don’t love – simply because he can offer you a comfortable lifestyle.

Better to take a total break from them both for three months and then see how you feel.
