Just got back from Valentines day out with the wife.

There were many factors in the outcome of this day. So I won't go into it, but to summarise ...

IT WAS A SHIT DAY !!

I am here on the couch, which will be my bed for the night. Which is for the better as I am soo royally pissed off right now.

I turned on my laptop to do something to keep me occupied, and for the life of me, I could not think of anything to do that will calm me down, except come here and vent to you guys .....

So here is what I want to know.

When you guys are really pissed off with the other half (won't say better half, as she makes me want to punch brick walls right now (don't worry, im not. if i did, i would break my hand and need to goto the hospital, and i can't be assed right now to drive out again)) what do you do to take your mind off things and cool down.

And what do you do to make up? Other than just say sorry or whatever. What creative things have you all done to make it better?

I'm away at work so I didn't get to go through all that, fortunately. Sorry to hear your day was so shit. I sent mine a dozen roses to the school she teaches at so I'm in the good books.

We did have a massive fight a few weeks ago though and I find that if I just ignore her and tell her to stay in the lounge room while I watch tv in another room she usually comes in soon after to apologise. You need to have the 'hand'. They need to respect your authoritah! :D I think my GF likes that since she is a teacher. Usually during fights she will say that I never admit to being wrong. She's usually right with that one :p I'll admit to you guys that I am wrong sometimes. Maybe 5% of the time :D

Of course that style doesn't work with everyone which I have found out from experience.

I hope she never sees this!! Hahaha

Good luck Yikes!

Sorry to hear bout your rough day, I hate vday, just an excuse to overspend on usually normally priced crap. Usually after an argument I'll come and read on some forms or get into a game, maybe take a drive, something to keep me at at bay bc I have a real bad temper and things get broke when I'm pissed. I've been with my girl for 10 years almost (highschool sweethearts) and its been a hell of a ride for sure. Had a lot of couch sleep, forum time, miles driven, game time.

After I calm down I'll usually apologize, unless it's just not my fault then hold on its gonna be a bumpy ride. Sometimes I have to think all she's done for me, which is a lot, and look past a lot of the stupid stuff (main thing).

I just play games to take my mind off of it, then I look for a way to make up, somehow.

There seems to be a lot of apologizing going on around here..........come on men. If you ride it out they usually crack and then you get the almighty 'hand'. With great power comes great............everything else! :D

Yeh, if I told my wife to go sit in the lounge, the fight would go on for a week. True story.

I used to play games, and it was good for a while, because she would get more pissed off at me and not talk to me. So I would get a bout 4hrs minimum of game time before she started to bug me.

I held true and did not apologise!!! So I think we are ok now. It has been successfully swept under the rug.

Im considering abstaining from sex. She wants more kids, and I do not. So no make up sex.

Glad it's okay between y'all now, it really sucks when you aren't at fault and yet have to suffer from it. Well the bigger picture is what counts.

Mine sucked. Mainly because both of us worked and it was a hell of a day at work too. Was fine otherwise. We work a lot so we have come to realize we don't have to celebrate everything that day. Just next time we get the time :)

But as for fights, we have been through our fair share of them. I ALWAYS talk about our problems. I never want to be without her, this is the person I want to grow old with..so pride is stupid. If it wasn't my fault, or more her fault than mine.. I still talk about it and apologize for my part. Usually the fights are stupidity on my side anyways.
If this person means anything to you, fight with everything you have to stay together.
Hope everything gets resolved.

I had a shitty Valentines day to..
Can't help with the woman trouble, my gf and I are pretty chill and on the rare occasion that we do push each others buttons we drop the issue, calm down for a few hours then talk about it if it needs talking about.

Valentines isn't even a real holiday... It was basically created by Hallmark to make more money...

Well in regards to talking, never gonna happen. Whenever she is angry, there is no talking. End of story.

That has never sat well with me. I'm always trying to talk it out, and if I force her, it will just get worse.

If we fight, it's never her fault. And if it ever is, it's who she is and I should never change her.

I'm sure I have my fair share of problems. I just have never found any myself ..... So not entirely sure what she is talking about .....

Yeh, we talked a lot about this. We both agreed that the day was a gimmick.

But when the day comes, and she sees all her friends getting stuff, she just wants it too.

Worst thing is, we agreed on activities for the day, but when it came time, she wanted more. Sigh.
