Life is all about boxes, isn't it. Spend your whole life living and looking for a box: a house in the shape of a box, a car such as a box, a tv shaped box, a fat friend shaped as a box and funny how excited you get for a package, which, ofcourse, is a box. Eventually, you end up in one, too.

17: Being exposed means being vulnerable, so I think most of us would rather be surrounded by some sort of walls to feel safe and secure. Maybe a box is a symbol of security? Food for thought.

Yeah. Most guys think for some reason that they're obligated to earn money because they're the men. I hope that OP doesn't take it personally. He's probably just upset and feels pretty bad about himself:( Hope you guys find a solution!:)

14: When you grow up in a society which dictates that you have to be the sole provider of your family otherwise you're a failure, you take it pretty harshly. It's hard to break free of societal norms.

Yea, I was about to say that MOST men feel the need to provide for their family, as it is as it is implied by social protocol. Op's boyfriend probably feels like less of a man now that he can't provide for his family and might be ridiculed by peers, especially if OP has a job while he doesn't.

mm i dont think so. my fiance lost his job in january and has been searching non stop with no leads. im the only one working while he does house work etc. he gets down alot and crabby and let it roll off me bc i know its tough for him bc hes used to working. i could not imagine leaving someone for something out of their control.

13: I'm pretty sure that OP's boyfriend feels this way because he wants to provide at least a place to live for OP, not wanting to let her down. I don't think he meant anything negative towards OP. That's how I see it, anyway.

It's a guys need to be a provider. Telling him that you'll be with him in a card board box would make him feel like he is not doing his job as the provider because he has his girl living in a box. I know it's hypothetical but he just lost his job so that comment wouldn't make him feel better. If she wanted to comfort him, she needs to show him support and reassurance that he'll get another job.

His reaction isn't about you OP. He lost his job and can't provide like men believe they should so he's more likely to feel like a failure right now. Dont take it personally.
