My boyfriend shuts me out!
whenever my boyfriend is angry with me he never talks to me and it drives me INSANE!!!!! I know taking some 'time out' is just the way men deal with things sometimes but I cannot deal with the lack of communication, even to the point where I am considering ending our long term relationship over it. I don't think I feel the same connection I once did with him because of how he always shuts me out. He is always saying 'don't hassle me' and 'I don't want to talk about it'. He will go away for an hour or so and when he rejoins me he is STILL mad, so there hasn't even been a cooling off period.

This happens to me a lot with my husband. He picks the wrong battles to fight, and can stay angry for way too long (i.e. a fight over the blender?!? Pretty dumb). Does your bf have an activity that he does to relieve stress? The usual way for my husband to get out of a funk is for him to sleep, or go have a drink with a buddy. I will gladly allow him to do that if he comes back "normal" and happy again!!! You're right, it's a miserable existence if you can always sense that something is wrong but don't know what it is. You might need to tell him straight up how you're feeling. If your bf IS angry with you, then he needs to tell you so it's not bottled up (and maybe it's something that can be fixed). And if he's NOT angry with you, then he shouldn't take it out on you. Good luck!
