Boyfriend and politics.

Anonymous

I been with my boyfriend for 2 years now. His laid back and very sweet guy and can be socially awkward.I'm completely the opposite of him I'm very outgoing person. I pushed him out of his comfort zone and he loves that he still struggles with talking with people. It does worry me that he doesn't have any friends and he doesn't go out other than with me or his parents. When him and I argue I go to my bff and talk about it and makes me feel better while he has nobody and his parents aren't very open like that they seem more interested in conversations on politics. This is where Im scared of his political views. We both have the same political views except he's more into it compare to me. I explain to him already why politics isn't important to me I will vote and help make a difference that way. I avoid watching the news because it only gets me upset and stress. I lost 2 of my closest family members and I wish I could of spend more time with them. For that reason I care more in living each day like it's my last being with friends and family and my bff and finishing school and helping the community the best way I can. I volunteer in Childrens Hospital and going to marathons for charity. He knows how I feel and he tries not to talk to me about politics too much. The other time he was telling me that his afriad that the economy for Texas will worsen I just sat there and listen didn't judge him at all. He said if it gets any worse his going to leave Texas (how can Texas get any worse.?)  I asked what about me and he said you can come. I told him Texas is my home and all my family are here and I will stay here. He than said he will have to move. I got very sad and I felt like our love for eachother isn't that important next to politics. I told him that and he felt bad and he apologized for it. Well something goes wrong with the politics he gets depressed and I can see it eve  if he tries to hide it. We only see eachother 2 times a week since we have busy schedules. He had to cancel on me 2 times already asking for a personal day. Its hard when he does that because we can't make up for another day. School and work is stressful for me, but i always manage to put things aside and make time for him.  We both live with our parents and the only comfortable place we can hang out is at his house. I'm always the one driving to him and usually traffic is bad and take me an hour to get ther and to go back home. I don't know what to do I don't want to change who he. I honestly believe he needs to have friends so he can have those political conversations with them. Or should I try having political conversations with him instead.??

Avoid political talk with him, instead have meaningful conversations.

My opinion, every one has their own thoughts and beliefs, and I read that you try to respect each others feelings. The relationship is still pretty "new", I would suggest to sit down and just talk about what the other invision's their future to be like, what they want to include / be a part of. Don't need to be exactly alike, but hopefully there are a few that are similar.
