A Sydney-based woman has spoken out about breaking up with a boyfriend because of the uncomfortably close bond he had with his younger sister.

Jacinta Coelho explained that she ended the relationship after just four month because “Jack” made her feel like she couldn’t compete with his 21-year-old sister “Melinda” - both names are pseudonyms.

The 30-year-old writer revealed how “Melinda” would hardly ever leave the couple alone and rarely spent time with any friends of her own.

Writing in a post for Mamamia, Coelho said that “Melinda” would glaringly watch the pair cuddling on the sofa before promptly storming off to her room.

“Did I think it was weird her staring at us? a little…but honestly…that was only the beginning,” she writes.

On one occasion, Coelho recalls how “Melinda” confessed that she was probably still single because she hadn’t found anyone that matched up to her brother.
