    I'm the type of person

    that can always find a reason to be happy, and don't even need a reason in the first place. My boyfriend always seems depressed and I think my bubbly happy talking can frustrate him. I'm not trying to be insensitive and I know he can't help it but I don't relate to that so I...

    My boyfriend lost his business a year ago and for the most part has spent the time sleeping all day, or going days without sleeping.  He got a job briefly last summer, but left because his boss was an a-hole and he wasn't used to even having a boss.  I approved because...
