We fight over dumb things. He runs away from conflict because he doesn't think he is man enough to be with me and work things out. And he will say this over something so small like me asking him to not ignore me. I am insecure because I think he doesn't want me. If he always runs for the door when there is a conflict then I must be not enough for him to look passed running to try. We get along perfectly as long as there isn't a conflict. UGH????Answer Question

Saying you get along perfect without conflict means you don't get along very much. Conflict in a relationship is actually healthy. Through conflict you learn how to deal with certain issues and work together towards a common goal. Him running away doesn't work and won't work in the end. Seek a therapist to help you two learn your communication styles and how to work through conflict. Look for the book "Hold me tight" seven conversations for a lifetime of love by Dr. Sue Johnson.
