How To Avoid Arguments In A Relationship
Arguments are the worst part of having a girlfriend or a wife.
However, they are almost inevitable.
In fact, they are part of a healthy relationship. You shouldn’t be trying to avoid arguments with your partner.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to limit unnecessary arguments in your relationship, how to disagree in a healthy way and quickly come to resolutions that satisfy both of you.
If you’re not having any disagreements in a long-term relationship, it usually means one of two things.
The first option is not worth it at all. Not only will a woman walk all over you if you let her, but she’ll also usually tire of having a spineless partner and leave anyway.
This second option might seem great to you, but you should know that this woman is eventually going to be frustrated with feeling unheard and disrespected. This will cause future conflict, and she’ll eventually pluck up the courage to leave you for someone who respects her opinions.
So, the solution to a happy long-term relationship isn’t to avoid disagreements. It’s to have them in the right way.
There are two types of arguments that occur between a couple.
Competitive arguments are simply a matter of strength and willpower. The partner with the most power in the relationship will eventually win. This is the partner who is the least scared of breaking up.
Still, the loser of these arguments nearly always walks away feeling more frustrated and resentful. As such, they’ll usually cause more conflict and eventually leave.
With collaborative arguments, both partners are likely to ‘win’ as often as the other. In reality, both feel like winners because the resolution leads to a more balanced and happy relationship, where they both feel respected and cared for.
Needless to say, if you want a healthy long-term relationship, you need to be having collaborative arguments. Always consider what resolution is best for the relationship as a whole. Whenever you’re making your point, make it clear that you’re doing this.
If your partner refuses to argue collaboratively, it could be that she senses you’re scared of her leaving you, and will fold to her demands. This might seem like the easy option, but she will continue to do so if she can get away with it.
If she only ever acts in her own interests, you need to leave.
You should strive for a relationship where your woman doesn’t see you as spineless – and is a bit afraid of a break-up because you’re just that awesome.
However, instead of taking advantage of her, you should still encourage her to share what she needs from you – and to let her have her way if it’s best for the relationship as a whole.
When you have the power but don’t abuse it, that’s the formula for a long-lasting relationship.
