DEAR DEIDRE: I RECENTLY used my dad’s laptop and discovered he had been on dating sites and writing to loads of women suggesting they meet up.
He talks of taking them away for the weekend and spoiling them.
My mum is gorgeous and I cannot understand why he would want to risk this. They have been married for 19 years, I thought happily. I am 17 and their only son.
I also discovered he had been talking to men and now I am wondering about my dad’s sexuality.
I have no idea what to do. His parents died a while ago and I don’t want to add to his stress. Should I just pretend I have not seen what I saw?

DEIDRE SAYS: Maybe he doesn’t follow any of this up but best tell your dad that you couldn’t help seeing he had dating sites on his laptop and it’s left you upset.
He can reassure you as best he may but it will also be a warning to him of potential fallout.
