My boyfriend has been getting angry over small things: Advice?

Need advice. My boyfriend and I been dating for about seven months. I am divorced and have a son. He’s been great to my son, and I. Recently noticed that he’s been having angry outbursts over very small things, even if it’s something he doesn’t want to hear, and his mood will change from being completely happy to mad in a matter of seconds. He will ignore me for the day or block me from texting. His brother said he’s been like this for a while, but I have not experienced this since now. It sounds like a personality disorder that was mentioned by his brother, also. My boyfriend doesn’t think he has an issue, and if we even talk about this, he gets mad. He’s been a genuine person since we met. Not sure why the change. Help!

He could be depressed or be having anxiety issues. Men tend to respond to mental health issues with anger

Make him your ex boyfriend and let it go. Boyfriends are not husbands, they’re temporary.

In my experience he either needs meds or he’s doing drugs. Good luck. I go through it with mine too.

Are you the first person he’s dated with kids? Dating a single parent when you aren’t one can be difficult

My husband became that way after a few years. Either he accept there is a problem or run.

He is a boyfriend.

Just a boyfriend. Peace out and show more discretion with introducing people into your son’s life.
