Let me start off by saying I'm 26, and my boyfriend is 28, and we live together. He hasn't had a day off all month, and he's been working graveyard shifts from 9pm-5am. I hardly go out to begin with, and lately my friends have been asking me to go out. Now when I mean go out I mean grabbing a drink for an hour or two, with my co workers after work. Mostly guys or gals married or in a serious relationship such as myself, but lately it seems everything I do annoys him. I always make sure he has something to eat, and make him lunch for later at night. I clean our apt, do our laundry, and massage him from time to time. Normally he finds my work stories funny but lately he doesn't want to hear them. I was trying to be playful to get him in a better mood, but that annoyed him, so I just don't know what to do? I understand he's tired, and he's not happy with having to work nights, but why take it out on me? I understand he "brings home the bacon", but must I deprive myself of hanging out for a drink or two? I know he's tired and he misses hanging out, but anyone have advice on how I can handle trying to be patient because I love him. It just seems the more I give the more he takes...😔

Night shifts make u moody so give him encouragement and love and tell him how hard working he is. Plan something to look forward to on his next day off and talk about u needing to get out once in a while rather than been stuck at home. He should trust u to be good so tell him how u feel about him and ease his mind. Good luck2

How long have you been together? Was he like this in the beginning of your relationship?
Look, I don't think your situation is quite serious, he's probably moody due to his job.
Have you tried discussing the matter with him?0
