There IS A Way: Here’s How To Win Arguments With Your Girl

Love’s not a competition, but it’s nice to win sometimes. When the first, “honeymoon” phase of the relationship – when all is rosy and neither of you is flawed in any way – passes, dark clouds will start to appear and you will slowly start bickering occasionally. This is how to win arguments with her every time (almost).

How To Win Arguments And Cut Your Losses

It’s a little childish to expect to win every single fight, but it’s also kind of pathetic to lose them all too. If you feel you’re in the right, this is how to deal with an argument.

Choose Your Battles Wisely

First of all, some issues can be resolved without an argument. Minor things can be discussed in a very relaxed fashion and some are not even worth discussing at length. Choose what you ignite an argument about because too much arguing can take a serious toll on a relationship. Not to mention that it’s a waste of precious energy.

Keep Your Cool

Easier said than done, but making an effort to remain calm during an argument is solid advice.  There are quite a few reasons. For you, it’s much easier to follow where the argument is going or navigate it where you want it to go. It is also good for her that you remain calm because when we get hot under the collar we say things we don’t really mean.

Don’t Patronize

There are few things women hate more than to be told to “Relax”, “Don’t get so worked up” and “Take it easy now”. In actual fact, telling a woman these things is like raising a red flag in front of a bull.

“I” Before “You”

It is best that you don’t begin your sentences with “You” but with “I” instead. For example, instead of saying “You are irritating when…”, go for “I feel a little irritated when…”. Might seem like a small thing, but it goes a long way toward making you sound less accusatory and finger-pointy.

Choose Your Timing

If you have had a really bad day at work, or feel too exhausted to process any kind of info or argument, just say so. There is no perfect time for an argument, but if you are honest and say you can’t handle an argument the way you should, it should be respected by your partner. The idea, however, is to postpone for a more fitting time, not sweep the issue under the carpet, so you may want to set a time that would be ok for the conversation/argument to be had.

Don’t Aim To Hurt

Even though you’ll get tempted to use 4-letter words and major accusations and always have one up on her in the insult stakes during the argument, try and aim to resolve the problem, not hurt her. You will lose all control of the argument and become the bad guy if you say things you don’t mean.

Don’t Lose Focus

Last but not least, it’s important to stay focused on the issue at hand instead of throwing in the argument all your problems and complaints about anything and everything. When you are dealing with one single thing, you are far more probable to come up with a solution or agreement of some sort.

Well, arguments are an integral part of any relationship and should not be something to fear. In reality, they help relationships move and couples come to better understanding of each other. Now you know how to win arguments with her, there really is nothing to worry about next time you have a strong disagreement over something.

Common Myths Dispelled: Why Dating After 50 Can Be Super Fun

In a society that is so obsessed with youth, it is easy to forget that today’s 50-year-olds are worlds apart from what quinquagenarians were like just a few decades ago. Perhaps now is a good time to debunk some of the false myths related to dating after 50.

The Myths And The Truth About Dating After 50

Let’s take a look at the most widespread myths regarding middle-aged people dating, as we explain why each one of them is false.

Myth #1: 50-year-olds don’t have enough energy to date. While this may have been true a few decades ago, in actual fact things are very different today. Today people in their 50s have great health, they enjoy a high standard of living and have a completely different lifestyle compared to that of decades ago. People in their 50s are now strong, healthy and full of beans.

Myth #2: People in their 50s don’t have the desire for physical contact. This is one of the biggest myths. People never lose their interest in or need for intimacy. By contrast, as we mature, we gain experience and become better romantic partners. In fact, it is more likely that a partner in their 50s will have enough experience to know how to make his partner happy.

Myth #3: Middle-aged people are narrow-minded. As with most generalizations, there is very little truth in this claim. In reality, people can be narrow-minded at every age – it is up to the individual to see life in an open way and be more accepting and modern in his views. Today’s 50-year-olds are up-to-date and sometimes even more modern in their views than 20-year-olds. We can thank their high levels of education and the media for it.

Myth #4: 50-year-olds carry too much emotional weight. To be fair, this is not factually wrong. But the way you interpret life experiences is totally up to you. Some might say that people in the fifth decade of their lives are carrying emotional baggage that may be a burden for their relationships. Others, however, may see it in a totally different light. As we grow older, we become more multi-dimensional by discovering that life is not black and white. People dating after 50 may have high standards (because they can compare with what they know), but they are also more empathic, understanding and insightful.

As with most things in life, age is a matter of perspective. If you are dating in your 50s, you should not let anyone categorize you just on the basis of your age. If you are thinking about dating someone in their 50s, you should not judge them on a criterion so shallow as age, depriving yourself of what may be a chance of finding true love.

You Are Doing This Every Day And It’s Destroying Your Relationship

In relationships that have been going on for a while, it is common to have arguments over the smallest of things. If you have an argument about something very silly and trivial and you can’t fathom what’s really brought it on, it may be that there are other, deeper causes for it. Read about some of the mistakes you may be making in your everyday life that are destroying your relationship little by little.

How These Habits Are Destroying Your Relationship

When the first period of your relationship is over, it is easy to make certain mistakes unbeknownst to you, really thinking they are perfectly alright and not realizing they may be the cause for much of the friction in your relationship.

Not giving yourself alone time. Being in a relationship is time-consuming and you will, of course, enjoy being with her. While it may be true that you need to spend time together and experience things in common, it is also vital that you save some time for yourself. Being consumed in a relationship is wrong because it essentially changes who you are and it deprives you of the air you need to breathe. Not having time to yourselves can cause bitterness and resentment, so leave some time aside for you and only you.

Making her spend too much time with your friends. Another relationship problem related to what you do with your time arises when you insist on both of you spending big chunks of it with your mates. As we said earlier, saving time for you is a must, so you can hang out with your friends during that time. Of course, it isn’t bad to invite her along sometimes and hang out together. However, you should remember that, as much as you love your friends, she is not just a friend – she is your girlfriend, and you should be devoting time to her too.

Not really listening. It is easy to make this mistake. As we get to know our other half we might feel we know enough and stop listening. Could be down to tiredness after a log day at work, could be because you’ve heard some of it before, or simply because you don’t want to hear her complaints or criticism, but blocking her out is wrong. It is disrespectful and she will notice if you keep doing it, so while it may be (barely) ok that you pretend to be listening once in a while; if it happens frequently it is bound to eat away at your relationship.

Criticizing her in front of others. This is really big no. No matter what she has done, how wrong she may have been and how annoying you may be feeling, you should never put her down in public. Keep your criticism and advice for when you are alone, as belittling her in front of others – even your closest of people – will create an ugly gap between you. You should be united and act as a strong team. Members of a  team don’t turn against one another, they cover for each other.

Now that you know about these small but significant relationship mistakes, you can stop destroying your relationship and start fortifying it by making small steps every single day.
