First off, I'd like to say that this post doesn't have anything to do with my fetish, as my fetish isn't causing any conflict or negativities in the relationship. If anything, my fetish is something that we both have fun with. Now, on to the parts I need help with.
I love my girlfriend, and have for over 2 years, without hesitation. Sounds great, right? Well, it is, except for a few little things. the first of those is the fact that I'm always so exhausted. I do 28 hours of classes a week in various engineering courses, plus around 3 or 4 hours of homework a night. Add to that the fact that I have to cook my supper and clean the apartment when I get home, I'm usually pretty tired. This tends to create problems, as my girlfriend always wants to hang out and go do something but I just don't have any energy by the end of the day it seems. I really wish I could do something about it, but I'm so flustered with school that my brain just goes on autopilot when I get home and it crashes a few hours later.
The second problem, the fact that things are becoming routine. It's not very often that we do something new or explore anymore. I don't have an income and I live on a very tight budget with only a few dollars a month to throw towards leisure. That usually leads to just hanging out at the apartment, not doing anything really amazing. I want to be able to make things fun again, but I can't really think of anything to do?
The third problem, my girlfriend thinks that I've become less affectionate over the last little while. I kind of have to agree with her, but then again, I haven't really noticed a shift? I mean, I'm still affectionate, but she says I'm not the same as I used to be? I don't know what I can do about that or even if I can change that.
Well, I don't really know what else to say, I just hope that some of the collective ADISC wisdom will help solve some of these problems or give me advice as to how I can solve them myself. Thank you.
