How can you tell a relationship is dead before it's actually ended?

I can't stand my boyfriend anymore we have been together now for almost 2 years and we have lived together for almost a year.
I think most of it is because he's changed! The sex has changed, he don't shower anymore, he's not very active anymore. He could careless if we went out on a date or just went out and did anything anymore. I haven't been out since april and it wasnt even out with him I went out with my best friend.. it's now the end of july...
I have two young children and I love going out and doing things with them too but he would rather be at home than join us on a family outing.
He quit helping out around the house as much as he used to. I'm just so tired of it!! I'm still young I'm a very young mother 22 to be exact. I have a 5 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. so I started young!
I don't abandon the guy.. I'm still sexy he could still do what ever he wanted with me in that department and still chooses not to. I know he's not cheating ..He just don't go anywhere. Work does not consume his entire life! I'm not a sit still kind of girl! He wants to sit and watch movie after movie with out moving once. Me on the other had I would rather take my kids to the park or go take a walk around the block a few times. I'm completely clueless as to why he is this way.

I'm posting in this thread to see if similar woman in my age group have had the same problem i'm having. Anything from suggestions Your own stories and advice would be awesome!

yes thay's what it sounds like to me as well. It might be a good idea for him to go see a doctor, and ask about depression. I'd sit down with him and have a talk about what he's feeling and whats going on with him. Let him know you're concerned and you think he should go see the doctor just to get some bloodwork done(they'll check his iron and thyroid to make sure those are both ok) then you can talk again. Meds have helped me tremendously.

Maybe he is depressed. Has he always been like this? Do you want to help him?
