3. Crazy Criticism

Sometimes, your partner might have some feedback for you.

Constructive criticism isn’t just a work thing.

It could be that your partner thinks you are away too much, or working too hard, or not pulling your weight at home.

It could be that you’ve got lax with showering, or they don’t feel that you are attracted to them anymore.

And this kind of feedback can be hard to hear, but you need to take it on board and not lash out in revenge.

Refusing to hear criticism, or accept it, will lead to the issues getting bigger and resentment festering.

Work together to resolve the issues, and avoid letting your pride cause more problems.

Passive Aggressiveness


Finding someone house trained and not selfish is so important. For 3 yrs and living in a biohazard, I couldn't wait to leave the relationship. Coming home to a huge mess can significantly increase stress levels.
When you are married it can apply, but if you are single feel free to mingle & not label anything.
I think saying things like, "my man," or " my woman," aren't really meant to be possessive. It just expresses that you are proud of your Significant Other and shows both unity and commitment.

Passive aggressive behaviour is a big no no. It makes people look bitter especially women. You start taking that dreadful behaviour to other relationships. Stop!!!!OK ownership bad one. Especially when girls say 'my man' or a man says 'my woman'please you don't own them. What happened to just my boyfriend or vice versa?I had. Friend who always said my man my man and then he dumped her...she thought she thought he was hers. Now if she had referred to him as 'my boyfriend' then at least there is a relation not ownership. Before there is any objections I am just saying sometimes words play a negative or positive place in our well being...just saying.
