I've been with my girlfriend 16 years and love her more every day. Shes about the only thing I love anymore but she is so depressed that neither of us have the desire to do anything but go to work then come home and sit in separate rooms and any attempt at communication leads to an argument. We work together so that adds to the tension. I used to listen to her talk about how she has nothing good in her life and theres nothing to look forward to and think to myself that shes just angry, but I know shes right. Were around the same age she's 36 I'm 39 and have no kids, we don't go out much other than work and going to get groceries and such so we're around each other alot but it feels like I'm always lonely and it makes me very angry and sad. She never tells me she loves me and when I tell her it feels like she doesn't love me she just says oh here we go pity party or stuff like that. We have sex maybe 3 times a year and its always like shes just going through the motions even when I can physically tell she enjoyed it. She's become cold and distant and I've been the same to everyone I know for at least the last 4 months. I don't know what to do. I feel I dragged her down and she would have a chance to be happy again without me but she has nowhere to go and I'm not sure she wants to be away from me but I'm positive she hasn't wanted to be my girlfriend for quite some many years now. I couldn't live with her if we broke up. We did it for over 6 months when we broke up 8 years ago and she had different boyfriends during that time but we got back together and I think she regrets it now. Seeing her this unhappy makes me regret it. She went to a counselor 3 years ago but it became unaffordable after we got into a car accident that left us unable to work for 4 months so she just stopped going.
