All my life I've been the fun - happy girl but lately I've been dealing with a deep depression problem. I went to a shrink and she told me I should have a friend to rely on and talk about my problems and what's bothering me. My boyfriend is my best friend but I'm afraid that if he knows about this deep depression, maybe it'd be too much for him, or are boyfriends supposed to be the perps. We rely on? Help us when we are crap? I'm just afraid he'll get tired of my crying and stuff

You know we all go through some stuff in life. I'm generally a strong person but I've just recently gone though a tough situation. I'm okay now but I needed someone to lean on for a bit. I'm single so I had support from my parents. But if I was your boyfriend I would try and help you. I would be a shoulder to lean on and support you. Don't be afraid to let him know. We're all human. Bottling it up doesn't help. The one thing I will say is never give up. Keep on pressing through your situation. We have to try and get through things no matter how tough. If you're trying your best there should be no reason your boyfriend wouldn't support you0

My boyfriend is sort of his and miss with being supportive to me when I break down. If it's following a fight, he's being unreasonable and I cry or say something after he makes a rude remark, he'll often being up my being 'exhausting', or will say that I can 'keep crying, it's not going to change a thing'.
After things like that happen, he usually comes around within half an hour and apologizes. admitting to acting wrongly. There are also good times. When I'm down for whatever reason and he's the sweetest guy.
Good boyfriends should generally try their best to be there to provide emotional support for their girl. Same goes for girlfriends being there for their boyfriends. However, it's important that the guy not let himself be used as an emotional crutch. I know way too many couples where the girl treats the guy like absolute crap, in addition to only really benefiting from being with him by using him as an outlet for her emotions. They are only human, so most boyfriends/girlfriends can only do so much to help their s/o out with problems.0
