Relationship in trouble

Default profile image
I got laid of from work recently and I didn't known how to tell my girlfriend. We're saving money to move in 2 weeks so money is tight to say the least. Anyway, its getting close to time to go to work and I do night shifts. She says it's about time to get ready for work and I didn't know how to say it. So I "went to work" and came back in an hour saying I got sent home sick. I know it was wrong but I panicked. Our relationship now feels like it's at a breaking point and I think my gf is ready to leave me. She won't talk to me either. "You lied to me, get out" and called me a deadbeat. I think she's considering staying when we planned on moving. I'm scared to lose her and I don't know what to do. Please help.

Firstly, you have to be honest and upfront..if you lie, you pay the consequences. Second, if you need to keep your GF and don't want to lose her, it's no good lying to her about your work. Lastly, unless losing your job is the last straw for her and is a another one of your 'transgressions', you need to think about if she's worth hanging onto, because if she loved and respected you, she'd support you and be a shoulder for you after losing your job, instead of telling you to get out.
