Distract him. That's what most people who are work stressed want. For them to get off work and do something fun that isn't related about work whatsoever. Plan a fun hangout maybe?

Just throwing it out there..... cause why not....

A BJ always helps with stress;);)

Assuming the OP is a woman I'd even settle for some nudes. Cranking one or isn't as his as a bj, but it works in a pinch.

let him know you're there to talk and if he doesn't want to then that's fine. I wouldn't take it past that.

I don't know what your relationship is with the guy, but what I find helps me most, is when my SO just does something, anything, to take something off of my plate. It can be ridiculously small - a little chore at home, but knowing I have one less thing I have to do, makes a lot of difference.

Just take him out for a night. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy

That is really dependant on the person.

If i was all stressed out, someone forcing me to "go out" will have the exact opposite effect on me.

Depend on how “too much” you consider a blowjob is

Ask him about his hobby or what he likes doing. Showing interest in someone else's interest can mean a lot to some people. Like his interests are being validated, recognized or seen.

jeez some of these replies are from lonely people.

just talk to the dude. a lot of men don't have a go to person to vent. dude is most likely holding everything inside. there's a good chance if you tell him that you can tell he's stressed, he'll tell you what's going on. that's just how i am.
