After about a year into our relationship, my college boyfriend and I fought about everything. Each Others' Past Lives Before You Knew Each OtherIt's easy to get jealous over your BF's past because you don't want them to remember life before you.
If you want to stop fighting and actually fix things, then you need to give yourself time to cool down.
You want to get away from the scene of the argument (which is going to just keep reminding you of the fact that you’ve had one) and do the things that let you cool off.
Similarly, yeah, your girlfriend may have seen what looked like you flirting with the cute redhead from Accounts Receivable, but clearly nothing was going on, therefore it’s completely unreasonable for her to be mad at you!
The problem with this approach is that we tend to equate being correct with having the moral high-ground and that immediately puts everybody on the defensive. This is another area that trips a lot of people up: we tend to equate apologizing with being morally wrong. And above all else: never, ever apologize just to make the fight stop and get her off your back.
I notice you didn't really say anything about how to proceed if the fight is over you having some grievance against HER. Feelings I usually feel during these points: sense of abandonment like people are withdrawing from me, loneliness, something about how whatever part of my life is bothering me at the moment (career, relationship, friendships, etc) is about to fall apart, anxiety over nothing (sometimes over a small thing, sometimes over literally nothing). Again, I stress that this is all from personal experience and is not based on any scientific study, but I do think it's worth thinking about.
I was being at least half joking with the whole stereotype, but you made it even more stereotypical.
You know, your responses to women here disagreeing with you are not doing a whole lot to support the idea that your first comment was entirely a joke. Yes, it does help to have some small amount of social calibration when introducing yourself to a community of people who have no idea who you are, no matter how often you read. Most relationships go through a stage where you and your partner are just constantly fighting. Some partners can get through this stage and come out okay – maybe even stronger and better than before!

Source: ShutterStock Think Before You SpeakOftentimes in an argument, you or your partner will say things you regret or don't really mean. Source: ShutterStock Stop Focusing On Who's Going To WinIf you're a competitive person like I am, you probably want to win most arguments instead of having to apologize. Source: ShutterStock Actually Try To Resolve Issues - Then Let It GoDon't stop the conversation you're having until the issue is resolved. We are fighting all over the time but that’s just because we love each other in fights. I feel it’s a lack of confidence and sometimes I refuse knowing that it will never stop and he will exaggerate in doing so but he gets angry and ends the relationship.
I was taking my time to accept the things that bother me but he was so impatient about marriage and now it’s too late for both of us. I believe that he still loves me as I still do but cannot figure myself living miserably I mean by this without socializing and always subject to suspicious beliefs. Every guy I've dated refuses to ask for directions or let me navigate, which usually ended with us getting lost and them yelling. Fighting with your significant other about which celebrities you'd hook up with is just the dumbest thing. This means you have to work on this together to fix things, not just dictate terms to one another as though you’re negotiating the Treaty of Versailles. Now in my late 20s, I have suddenly been hit with bouts of crazy PMS-type emotions that are kicking my ass (usually there are about one or two days in the week before my period that are kind of bad, and then like one super shitty day during my period). There are so many endocrine disruptors in food and water it can quickly build up to a major problem (I know that sounds real hippy but there's quite a bit of research backing the claim). He doesn't argue with her, so he instead makes snide comments about the old ball and chain to his friends or perhaps just quietly resents her.
It also seems to come with an suggestion that anything a wife might be in conflict with her husband about is trivial enough that agreeing to it comes with no serious consequences.
You also have to know how to stop fighting so that you can actually fix things and move on to the more important parts of the relationship… like the make-up sex. Unless you actually address the cause, then all you’ve done is just put things on pause until you fight again. Collaborating together to find a way to make things right reinforces the fact that at the end of the day, you’re on the same side. It reaffirms the strength of your relationship and rewards you for fixing the problems instead of just fighting over and over again.


The minute you start suffering in silence for however long means there is a conflict, whether the other person is aware of it or not, and regardless of the level of civility when it is brought up. Taking a breather from each other allows you both to calm down, think about what you're angry about, and approach the situation in a more mature way. I'm a very stubborn person, so I have difficulty with this myself, but it's really important to be open to what your partner is trying to say.
It shows that you're closed-off, not interested in working things out, and just plain angry.
Letting things go to focus on later is only going to leave both of you feeling dissatisfied, bitter, and frustrated. A sincere apology means understanding why your partner is upset with you and copping to your part in having made it happen.
And if you actually care about the person you’re dating, then you damn well better care about how you make her feel. My boyfriend knows this has been happening too, and pointed out that our last two major fights have happened at exactly the same point during the month for the last couple months. If you’re not ready to give up on the relationship, then you need to learn how to stop fighting!
I'm not talking about a week separation - you just need about 30 minutes apart to really think about things on your own.
When we fight, we just deal with it and everything’s fine cuz he always understand me. At the time, I was super passionate about these fights, but looking back I’ve realize how stupid all of that was. Like a campfire, it may seem like things are settled, but one errant spark and suddenly the whole thing flares up again and burns the forest down. When you feel this time coming on let your BF know and maybe limit time together (which will not help with abandonment feelings but may reduce fights). If the answer to all of those things is yes, then this is an important issue worth fighting about.
