Dating someone who gets angry
Give him a chance to be part of the issue and to come up with a solution that works for both of you.
Here, a guide on how to control anger in a relationship: ‘I am mad at my boyfriend! A man is naturally drawn to a woman who is in tune with her feelings and who has both the confidence and the self-love to not put up with what doesn’t feel good.
If you’ve ever encountered resistance from a man when you share your feelings, think about whether you were actually sharing your feeling or whether you were making a judgement about his behavior or the situation. He can’t hear you past this because he feels blamed, criticized and wrong.
Instead, focus on the actual feeling you are experiencing: “I feel really weird talking about this, and I don’t like feeling angry about such a small thing as ‘time’, but I feel crummy when I’m waiting for someone.” Notice how you’re not directly making him responsible for your feelings.
So before you even speak to him, take the time to get real with yourself and understand where you’re coming from so you’re better prepared to approach the topic with a calm mindset and attitude.
When you feel anger toward the man you’re with, this is often a sure sign that you’re simply doing too much in the relationship – what some experts call ‘overfunctioning.’ Overfunctioning involves working hard to win a man’s attention and affection, and it also happens even when you’re spending a lot of time just thinking or talking about him.And the reality is that you’re angry with yourself for doing so much to begin with.
