Guys, when you're stressed out with work, school, life. whatever, and you feel like you can't take it anymore, or you're in a really bad mood, what could your girlfriend do to help? What would you want her to do?
Would it help if she gave you space, and left you alone?
Or would you want her to take you out to dinner? order pizza and beer., or take you out for a drive.? sex maybe? talk?
honestly when I'm feeling stressed out the only way for me to really relax is to sit down in an air conditioned room (or heated if its winter) and put on a movie or maybe some standup comedy . . . I like it quiet when I'm trying to relax and if the girl wants to be involved there's really only 2 things she can do to help the process . . .make sure the glass of whatever it is I'm drinking (whether alcoholic or non alcoholic) stays full and just sit there and wrap her arms around me while we watch it together
sex is not a stress reliever . . its something you do when you're already feeling in a good mood . . but it doesn't put you in a good mood if you're in a bad mood . . I don't know about other guys but I can't even get it up if I'm feeling pissed or extremely stressed out
A little space can be a good thing but let him know you're giving him space. My girlfriend would give me space without saying a word and it made me feel abandoned. I would have preferred talking to her about it or just going out and getting a beer together to take my mind off it. I always like the direct approach try "hey you seem really stressed lately is there anything I can do to help" in a concerned tone maybe with your arms around him.
