He owns the business or I would have already!! I know this because I only started closing this late after he found out I have a boyfriend.

Not likely. Many jobs that have 12 hour shifts don't give OT for that shift. Their OT comes from any hours worked past 40 hours in a week. So he can work her 12 hours on Saturday nights and not pay her OT as long as she only works 28 hours the rest of the week.
Trying to see the brighter side-- If OP works 12 hour shifts then most likely they only work 3 out of the 7 days to get 36/40 hours per week(unless they're allowed some mad overtime?) Personally I'd rather have more days off to do what I want, include seeing my BF. Hopefully they don't work opposite schedules.
Does your boss happen to be a male and jealous??? That sounds like a really dumb reason to put you on 12hr shifts.
She didn't assume Op's boss was a male, she asked. Hence the questions marks. And let's be honest, in every FML we assume at least a little. For instance right now we're all assuming that the Op is correct in thinking their boss gives them more hours and closing times because Op has a boyfriend. When in reality, it could just be that the boss likes and trusts Op more than their other employees and trusts that everything will be extremely clean and in perfect shape when Op closes.
