    He just wants you to keep encouraging him and showing him you care. Remember though you become who you associate with and when it comes to hanging out with negative people its easier for them to influence you than you to influence them.  Trust me I am one of them at times. Give him some good books to read, like the magic of thinking big.  Read the Bible together, it's a pretty positive book!

    This is a very difficult question.  Do you need a boyfriend who is so negative?  If the answer to this is yes, then you could suggest that he reads some self help books or positive articles, there are many on here.  If he won't help himself whatever you do, think of you, sometimes trying to help isn't always the answer.

    By not taking his negativety seriously and focussing on his good aspects.

    You don't support him. He needs to man up or you need to move on.
