Do you break down first?

when you and you SO/DH get in a really heated arguement and you guys stop talking for a while are you the first one to apologize even if he was the one to cause the arguement?

  • I don't apologize, we argue about stupid stuff, I'm usually the first to end the arguement by saying it' pointless to argue and I walk away. It takes 2 to argue.

  • No. I will have anxiety attacks trying to get the courage up to apologize. While talking myself into apologizing he ends up coming to me and I miss out. It means so much to him when I apologize first.

  • yup, bc I don't like all that tension. Even if it's not my fault. What's important to me is the peace and the make up sex!

  • He refuses to argue. So I just wait until he is done being all stubborn and then we act like nothing happened :) 11 years and probably only 2 heated arguments.

  • I'm the first to crack every time. He's stubborn and I"m not and I hate when I've calmed down and ther'es tension in the air. So after seperating ourselves for an hour or so, I come back and we talk more calmly about it. Usually that's how it works anyways.

  • no, apologies are usually pretty mutual, or often we just let to go for the most part.

  • No, probably why things don't get settled most of the time, and brought back up later.
