    Ask him quietly, why is he despressed? What has happened? I think he has a problem. Maybe about his family. Try to understand his feelings and make him smile again!!! By knowing what has happened to him, you'll be easier to make him like usual again!!! Just tell him that there's no use to despress or sad. I had happened so there's useless to think about the problem again.

    Hey Missy. Depression is a serious thing, but needs to be diagnosed properly. It might not be depression at all. He may be unhappy in the relationship. So, sit down and talk to him about it. Tell him you want to help because you care about him. Understand that people commit suicide from depression. But there is hope. Thousands of people get out of their funk through psychological help and medication. If the relationship is an issue then you two need to work on that. That might even include breaking up if it helps him.

    Well is it just negativity or is it actual depression. If it is depression, you can not treat him, and he needs to go to at very least a therapist and possibly a dr. If its just negativity then therapy could help, but really, some people are just extremely negative and wont be changed in that matter

    sadly depression can do this to couples, but if your serious about helping him i advise you to go to group therapy with him, to help you to understand what he is going through. also by doing this YOU have support and are not dealing with this alone!
