Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

My boyfriend is quite protective and he doesn't like it when I travel for work. Whenever I have to go away, he gets really upset and we end up arguing. I don't want to fight with him but I also can't give up my job. What should I do?

Before you tell your partner that you are going away for a few weeks, sit down with him and explain the situation to him. Let him know that you understand his concerns but that this is something you have to do. Additionally, try and assure him that you will stay in touch and that you will miss him while you're gone. Finally, offer to video call or send photos so he can feel like he's there with you. By doing this, you will show him that you are still committed to the relationship even though you're apart.
