    Right now I'm feeling emotionally drained. My boyfriend isn't the happiest person in the world and I knew this from day one. However it's finally taken its toll. I know not everyone can be happy all the time but it would be nice if he cracked a smile once in a while. If he isn't moaning about drivers on the road then it's something else.

    Totally I just gave up talking, I even joked and asked if he could crack a smile or something and he didn't. I kept asking if he was OK because he looked so miserable. I was close to asking if I could stay over but given the mood I didn't even bother to ask. I just sat in the car in silence as he moaned about people and their bad driving techniques.

    The Other day I asked if he was happy and he said he was happy with the relationship... so I don't get it. I understand he is still having to deal with his injury after his accident and I symphasise with him in regards to that. I wish I could help him in some way. Other than that I don't know what to do anymore. I have to look out for myself and my happiness, I can't be putting my all into trying to make him happy 24/7. Its not even like I'm comparing him to other guys or hoping he will change. I just want him to be happy...

    What do I do?
