DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend doesn't get excited about anything anymore. He walks around the house all day with a gloomy expression. When I ask him about it, he tells me he is bored.
I'm scared he might get bored with me. Our sex life is great, and the relationship seems like it's on firm footing. But I can't shake this feeling he doesn't want to be here anymore.
Sometimes I see him staring out the window as if waiting for something to happen. He talks less and less every day. I'm not sure what's wrong, and I'm really scared for him. -- ALARMED IN ARIZONA
DEAR ALARMED: The behavior you have described could be a sign of depression -- or not. If you want to find out what's going on in your boyfriend's head, summon up the courage to ask him if he is unhappy in your relationship. If he says you aren't the problem, explain that you can see his behavior has changed, and tell him that if he's depressed, he needs to talk about it to a doctor and get a checkup. There might be a medical reason for his boredom and low energy.
