How can I keep myself from being loney even when he is home?

Whenever my fiance is home, he is either playing games on the computer or on his gaming console. I get so frustrated because I feel like I am the only one that takes care of our child. I feel lonely even though he is in the same exact room. We really do not spend any quality time together, because I guess we just don't know how to. We don't have cable tv and we have seen every movie we own at least 5 times each. We can't do anything, because gas is too expensive and everything is over priced. How can I keep myself from feeling lonely even when he is home? Or what are some ideas on what we can do together at home or inexpensive? With or without our son....

  • I would go out to the park or start a play group make some friends and talk to him tell him what you told us and move on from there.

  • I try to tell him. I have even left... He said things would change but they haven't. I love him... But I am really at my wits end!

  • Will he play games WITH you at least? When I was married to my ex I felt lonelier when he was home than when he wasn't. Notice I said ex.
    Try talking to him and compromise together on an amount of time for him to play his games, and then he spends time with you and your child!

  • Go to the goodwill and get some board games. You might actually have conversations while you play them. Or take family walks.

  • When dh and I were first married and struggling, we spent time together doing little hobbies. We'd bake, I would teach him. We would make little birdhouses together -he taught me...very inexpensive but so worth it...
