Dear Diana,
I got divorced three years ago. It was by mutual consent as I just did not get along either with him or his folks. We were married for three years. Now I am 31 years old and have met this guy who is 43. He is well off and runs his family diamond business. Every thing is going well, even the fact that he is 40 plus, except that he feels that I am after him because of his wealth. It hurts as I am not after his money and I'm not wanting to marry him because of it. What should I do?

Dear Deeksha,
You have already had a failed relationship, so it is you who should be wary of tying the knot again. Here your guy has some nagging thoughts! It appears that he has been with other girls but it is this fear that stops him from committing. Money is there today, gone tomorrow. It is important for living but an obsession can lead to a lot of problems like the one your guy is facing. You need to have a frank and forthright talk with him. You have to explain to him that you are looking for a committed and understanding partner not a Mr Richie Rich. Before you take the next step be sure about his intentions, or else you are better off without him. You have hurt yourself once, why hurt yourself again?
