Well, four weeks ago I went away for the weekend. I was supposed to start a new job the following Monday, and he called me that Sunday night wishing me good luck. I hadn’t heard from him in two days except when he wanted to find out where I was. I screamed at him on the phone and he was texting me all this mushy stuff, telling me that, when I was finished with the guy I met, he wanted me to give him a call. See, this jealousy of his is an ongoing problem because he’s been divorced twice and I’m a widow. Every so often, if I’m at work early in the morning and he sees me talking on the phone he wants to know who I’m talking to.
Anyway, he used to text me every morning when he got to work before me, he would also call me when he was on his way home and ask if there was anything we needed. Now he has stopped all of this, and we aren’t having sex and he doesn’t even tell me that he loves me. He’s snappy and rude and I’m getting sick of it. I’ve asked him if something is wrong and he says no; I ask him if he wants me to move and and he says no; I ask him if he’s met somebody else and he says no and that I’m the only one he loves.
He’s a Capricorn and it has been said that they can be very moody people. He bought a $40,000 dollar truck and has been having qualms about returning into the dealer because he says he can’t afford it, yet yet he withdraws $200 twice a week out of his savings account.
Deep down inside I know I should’ve never moved in with him and I’m growing closer to moving out. He has breathing difficulties and seems to be meaner lately. Do you think between his financial status and his health this is impacting our relationship or has he met somebody and wants me to be the one to break it off so that he doesn’t have to feel guilty?
I just can’t take much more. Could you give me some insight as to what I need to do? — Not a Capricorn
