Are you one to say things you don't mean when you have a fight with your SO?

ugh, I can be mean and I apologize to him, but I replay what I said in my mind and its like an apology isn't enough :(

  • I did with my ex. But i think deep down i really meant some of the stuff i said, even though it was horrible. I'm completely different w/ my Love that i have now. I would never want to hurt him like that, but if he's bieng a jerk for whatever reason (like daddying me over stupid stuff) , i'll only say the truth. If he is being an ass, I will tell him he is being an ass & in a calm voice (it makes him feel worse if i say it maturely, & calm) .

  • Yeah and I do regret it after I do but its like they underdstand how we feel when they hurt us and its like they don't care either.

  • yea but we both do. i blame it on us both being geminis...its a relationship of 4! haha...but its been 5yrs now that we've been together, and frankly. its not as bad as it use to be. i think we are maturing into a good responsible couple.

  • I used to be like that.. till my Dad died with him and I out of sorts and I'll always regret that so I've learned to try really hard even in anger to just shut up instead of saying something I'll regret and may not get the chance to say I'm sorry for, or that they may never be able to get out of their head. You can apologize all you want, but it never erases what you said, it's forever embedded in their memory

  • He is the one who says mean things when we argue.I don't want to talk at all when I'm mad.Both are just as bad.But once you say something you can't take it back like it never happened.Even if you are truely sorry.For me the mean statement plays over and over in my head.Even if he was really really sorry.I remember the hurt feelings for a long time.My husband has stopped doing that.So now I am willing to have "discussions" with him.I'm just telling you this so you understand your husbands side of it.Maybe you two need to just not talk to each other when you are mad, and wait til later to settle it when you won't argue.

  • Yes. I really do regret it because he is sooo sweet, I'm the fighter not a lover and he's a lover not a fighter lol so he is always the first to apologize. I have gotten better though I just have a problem that when I'm mad at someone I just say the most hurtful things. But if I wanna keep my husband I better watch my mouth LOL.

  • I use to do that with my ex, but I think it was because I had lost respect for him. I don't now with my SO so I think it has to do with maturity (I was younger) and how much you respect them.
