So my fiance and I just moved to the city. We both just graduated college. He got a high paying job as a computer engineer and I am nannying this summer and will be attending Optometry school in the fall. It’s been about 2 months of Fiance working and he hates his job. He has had an internship doing the same sort of work at a different company and he really enjoyed it. Here, he has had absolutely no training. His boss is unhelpful, and he is expected to work long unpaid hours on nights and weekends. He is convinced he will get fired because he was given too much to handle to start off with, and at this point, he is missing deadlines. I can see he is suffering, he is loosing weight, and he keeps apologizing to me for not being happy and not being with me enough. I really just want him to be happy but I don’t know how to help. We already signed a lease on our apartment that we won’t be able to afford if he quits. Now, things could get better once this specific project passes. After all, it could be a learning curve and adjusting to professional life. I’m just not sure what I can do to comfort him or make the situation better. It makes me so sad. Looking for advice please!
