Re: Husband is only grouchy at me
I dated a guy like this once. He was nice around his folks, his brother, or friends etc. When it came to me sometimes, he wouldn't even acknowledge me at times. He wouldn't speak, or he would just act mad around me. I too, asked him if I had done something wrong, or why he seemed mad around me. He said he was sorry and wouldn't act like that again and that it wasn't me.
However, even though he said it wasn't me, his actions did not match his words. He continued to act that way. Which to me, said it was me. I later on found out after trying to get him to tell me the deal which was like pulling teeth, it was some underlying resentment he had towards me over something that had happened weeks prior. Yes, he was acting childish. Instead of coming to me and talking about it like adults, he decided to use passive/aggressive behavior, by shutting down and not talking to me at all, or acting mad,but not around others. It almost felt like a punishment.
I'm not saying that is the case for you. However, if he says he wont do it again or doesn't realize it, then watch his actions. See if he continues to do it. If he does, then chances are he knows exactly what he is doing, and it very well may be you after all. If someone tells you, its not you or you didn't do anything etc, but yet they still ignore you or act mad etc, then they are probably lying because they don't know how to express themselves verbally so instead they act like that. If he keeps on, you need to get to the bottom of what the deal is.
