I recently met somebody (in Dec. 2009) and we get along very well... however since January he doesn't have work (he is self-employed - in the construction business) and I noticed the last 2 weeks, he is not motivated to do anything as he is feeling very down. He says it's because he doesn't have work right now and apparently that gets to him big time.
He is very nice and in December he was full of energy and we did quite a bit... however lately he just wants to stay at his house and does not feel like doing anything with me ... he wants me around but if we see each other, it's usually just watching TV together while laying on the couch....
Sometimes I get the feeling that when we talk and I tell him something, he isn't really listening, he says that his mind is all over, thinking about work (how to get work again).
I am wondering about that, should I be concerned? I can't help him how he feels, I told him he should not stress himself out so much and rather enjoy the time off as he says during the summer he is always very busy where he works every day... however I get the feeling that if he doesn't have work, he feels useless in a way.
