I need help regarding my sons future.

I am 17 and have been in a nearly 2 year long relationship. We have a 6 month old son together and I feel like my boyfriend is working full time just because he doesn't want to be around. what do I do?

What do you mean by "full time"? Do you mean he is never home? Or do you mean you'd rather he have a part-time job? Is he fully supporting you and the baby financially, and is money tight? There could be many reasons.

Who knows what's going on exactly. Maybe he's just working full time because he wants to support you guys and feel secure financially. Maybe he feels like to be the 'man of the house' it means he has to be the breadwinner of the family. There could be other reasons why he's working full-time.

You might try planning a datenight once a week (or bi-weekly). Maybe that will help the relationship get a little spark back into it? Maybe there are other reasons going on but this could help you feel more connected to him and like he's giving you more of his time.

I would possibly ask him out-right as well. Tell him how you feel in a calm respectful manner. See what he has to say, you can't make assumptions on it.

I do hope it's just a misunderstanding.
