Dating a man with a short temper

Little kids are prone to throw temper tantrums. As you age, you start to learn that keeping your anger in check is essential to maintaining respectful, solid relationships. The things he says in the heat of the moment matter. How you choose to work through an argument is important, and the way your boyfriend addresses problems is really a reflection of his feelings towards you. If his first instinct is to corner you and immediately start attacking you with hurtful words, that indicates a huge lack of respect.

A Letter To Those Loving Someone With A Short Temper

SO and I are both 24, we have been together for 1 year and living together for 7 months. We get along great, we are best friends, and talk frequently about getting married, etc… basically have a great relationship. SO is a pretty happy, chill guy, but can lose his temper easily when he gets frustrated or impatient. Today for example, he was helping me do some financial stuff over instant messenger while we are both at work it was time sensitive so we had to get it done there and then and he got frustrated that what we were doing didnt turn out the way he wanted it to, got annoyed at me, then lost it.

He always has a picture in his mind of the way things need to go and if he doesnt go that way he basically gets pissed off and horrible. I spoke to his parents about this and they said he has always been like that. Being a very sensitive person I got upset and went and cried in the bathroom at work. What im bascially wondering if any of you fine ladies on here also are in a relationship with a man who can lose his temper easily over stupid things , and what are the ways you deal with it?

Normally i ignore him, but on a day when not feeling my normal self I think I need to find a way to better deal. Any suggestions? I personally am not in your position. My Uncle is like your SO and my Aunt is like you. They have been married for 40 years and she has gotten very good at ignoring his tamtrums. Tell him what your line is. Tell him he upsets you when he over reacts like that. Everytime he does it to the point of bothering you, let him know.

Our counselor identified my guy as a perfectionist, and not immature. The desire for perfection at all times causes him to react poorly in normal situations where someone would just cut their losses and label it as bad luck. He never screams at me. He never throws anything. He never calls me names. But I know his personality enough to know that some times I just need to give him a second to vent and just ignore him.

Either then or later once he cools off. But it happens. Point is. Frustration like that CAN be a sign of emotional immaturity. But it can also be a sign of a perfectionist attitude. You need to know where you draw the line though. He needs to learn to practice some self control. Happens in any relationship with strong differing personalities. Sorry you had a bad day. Like right now I am yelling at the autocorrect in my iPad lol.

Yes, my ex-husband was like this. It had to do with a selfish, entitled attitude on his part that no situation or person could dare to go any way but HIS way and he was Prince Charming…until something anything, nothing set him off. We spoke a bit last night when he got home, he said he was just frustrated with the situation in general and it isnt me. I called my mum too and she reminded me that he just needs some space and he will be fine which he was! These situations dont occur very often, but we agreed that when it happens again that im just going to back off and leave him to it, then we can discuss when he is more relaxed.

Sounds like my fiance. I just ignore him while he throws his tantrums. I just ignore him and he eventually settles down. This is pretty much exactly my DH! My fiance has an anger problem. For him, a lot of it has to do with his upbringing. He was never encouraged as a child to express himself or tell people how he felt, and he is a pretty sensitive guy. He is never violent or anything, he usually just yells something then feel guilty about it for a day or two. One thing that really helped was talking openly about the problem.

Once he started to realize what he was doing and how his reactions were perceived by others he began to control himself better. That has been especially helpful.

A man having a bad temper should be considered as dangerous and destructive as, say, smoking. So why do many outburst-prone men get away with it?. One of the biggest red flags when dating someone new is a bad temper. Any signs of a bad temper and you should peace out immediately.

A short temper has been the hardest thing I have had to deal with. Anger builds inside of you, regardless of whether or not you understand why. I've heard of many who easily find themselves sad and suffering from a sinking feeling, but anger is like the opposite.

Individuals who suffer from short tempers are generally quick to anger and flying off the handle. Unfortunately, society has trivialized the monumentally devastating consequences which can follow suit as a result of a short temper.

When You Love an Angry Person

He had a very bad temper. It seemed he would get extremely angry about little things. He would get so angry that he would break things and punch holes in his walls when I was standing there crying. In one instance, he even threatened to kill himself. I find that I am afraid of telling him almost anything that might slightly anger him. This only happens about once or twice every 3 months. In every day circumstances he is very kind and understanding, it just seems that sometimes he blows up. In my opinion, I think he holds in his emotions and they eventually blow up. I have told him I think he needs help and just recently, after one big anger blow up, he agreed and is willingly pursuing it. We are planning to discuss this all with his parents and seek their advice on what actions we should take. I really love him and I care about his health and I want to help him as much as possible.

10 Ways to Handle Dating Someone with Anger Issues

The world is a mixed bag. We encounter people with varying personalities and this is what adds spice to life. But encountering a person with a bad temper is not a very pleasant one. Moreover, dating such a person is totally out of the question. But people possessing a bad temper do find a date willing to go with them. How is that so? Which side are you on?

There are many traits that are good predictors of how a man will treat a woman while in a relationship. Here we take a deeper look into the man with a temper and list the warning signs. Most women assume that I am referring simply to a man who is violent or abusive. Naturally, avoiding those types of men is a given. However, when I refer to a man with a temper, what I am specifically referring to is a man who overreacts to a situation when he is angry. Although again, behaving in either of these ways would be inappropriate and inexcusable.

The intention to help is good but it is misplaced as it enables the angry person to stay as he is. The research shows that men are angrier than women. Women have structural differences in their brain that work with emotions, so that women can more easily inhibit the anger response. The higher testosterone level revs up in men and sets the stage for more aggression. In addition, aggression is considered to be more acceptable in boys and men and is modeled for them by Hollywood through violent movies. Boys usually like the more violent computer games. Women typically take the peacekeeper role, although recently more and more women are acting in aggressively angry ways.

Traffic is a nightmare, your favorite sport team loses their championship game, your new shirt was ruined in the laundry -- the list of common grievances like delayed flights and having a waiter bring the wrong dinner goes on and on. Yet when someone acts angry for no reason, or explodes in anger, that could be cause for alarm, because extreme or explosive tempers are one of the warning signs of dating abuse.

Rick Kirschner on January 24, Recently, I was asked to respond to someone who has a bad tempered boyfriend. I know that I cannot argue with a hot tempered guy because it will make it worse. Instead, I have tried to calm him down everytime he gets upset. He is a wonderful guy, and he also makes me laugh. How do I deal with him? My response came in the form of a little straight talk.
