When he comes home on weekends he spends a lot of time by himself

I've been with my boyfriend a year and a half. I knew him for about that before we got together.

He's been driving for about 2 years. He started a new job when we got together and it wasn't as bad at first as I suppose we were in the honeymoon phase...

I moved in at Christmas just gone and it seems that when he gets home from work he will eat shower and fall asleep (which I don't mind as he's had a long day) but come the weekend when I've been waiting all week to spend a full day with him it's like he's grumpy and just wants to be on his own?

He apologies and says it's just cos he's tired... and there is more days than not that we have good days. But we argue so much more and I feel so alone.. especially in the the week. I feel invisible and I don't like it.

It's hard to talk to him as he gets upset and says he is really sorry he is out so much but I don't know what to do anymore. I'm really struggling and when it comes to weekend he spends so much on himself I feel by myself.

It's probably really selfish and I love him and support him on his job 100%... but I feel like I'm forever waiting for him to give something back. He never has to do the shopping or the tidying and the laundry.

I try to make him being at home nice instead of sitting in a mucky lorry all day... but I feel like I'm slowly giving up and I don't want to.

Are you in Europe? The word "lorry" is European.
Anyway, can you ride with him in the truck?
