I told my boyfriend today that his indifference and cold attitude towards me makes me feel horrible about myself. He won’t call me beautiful, won’t have sex with me, and spends every waking hour he can on his computer and ignoring me.
I told him it feels horrible that I always build him up and let him know how great he is, when in return he won’t even give me the time of day basically. I told him when he rejects me for sex, it’s more than just an “oh man I’m horny thing” and that having sex with him makes me feel sexy and empowered. He cooly responded that he was sorry sex was so validating for me.
I have manic depression and he used to be an uplifting part of my life but I don’t know what to do anymore. I’m in a tough spot as I live with him and feel like if I leave him it would put me in a position where I would need to find a new place and I don’t think that’s possible. I don’t know what to do.

Take back your life and start apartment shopping. Also get a counselor and on antidepressants. You may need to try several before you find the one that works for you. You wouldn’t run around without glasses if you couldn’t see. Don’t waste anymore time on this boyfriend. He may have tried to take care of your mental illness for too long and have burnt out. He is now a lost cause. One person trying to work on a relationship won’t work. This will be hard for you but I know you can do this.
Up and go, lady. He is NOT worth YOUR time of day.
