28. Being around Other Couples is Awkward AF

photograph,person,eyewear,photography,beauty,

Seeing happy couples just reminds you that you're not part of one.

It's difficult to spend time as a couple around friends who have healthy relationships.2

You're constantly reminded of all the things your relationship lacks.

You Ignore Your Problems Instead of Fixing Them

That's great advice! I actually did that. You've got to fix yourself before you can even go about fixing anything else.

If you're on the fence about your relationship, seek relationship counseling for yourself first, then couples therapy if the therapist thinks that would help.

That is so true!! With my girlfriend and I -- it's all about the little things that cause fights.
Heather Jensen
That isn't good! Are you annoyed with your boyfriend?
Oronda Washington
I get annoyed very easy..Ugh!!

The Little Things!! For my very recent ex there were no major "deal breakers" so i stayed with him thinking i needed to just put up with the little things. But a million little things built up resentment and frustration. Lesson I learned was to have higher standards and not hesitate to consider something a deal breaker.

Aww, I've actually done that to my partner before ... and it's not appreciated at all. Talk about it with him, see how he responds.
Heather Jensen
Aww Jesse, I'm sorry!

It's definitely frustrating at times. Our main problem is...he likes to throw jabs, low blows about a problem I'm struggling with. He always ends it with "I'm only playing" when sometimes he may be but other times...he's really not.
