BTDT, not nice but we usually cool off while apart, then naturally fall back into our happier routine (a rat/maze thing), and then work on the issue. Hope it's similar for you.
I am thinking the majority is more like this...what you describe here CharlieParker...
We're a little different.. There have been times I'd slam a door in a huff... (frustrated) but then... I come crawling back as I can't stay away.
All in all.. our fighting style is rather humorous... I open the crack of the door telling him I am so pathetic that I can't stay away from him.... .never fails.. he gets this corner smile on his face
.. he likes that !!
Truth is.. we're both kinda worthless, feeling the weight of the world ...just miserable when we're at odds... we both hate it.. this keeps our fights very short lived.. it's like we have to just wade through it ...finding our peace.. He listens to me.. I listen to him. we unload..
I am more the hot head for sure.. but he handles me so well...it's hard to stay mad at the man.. I know it's ME who needs to bring that dang olive branch... though he's done it even when it was my place.... Just gotta love him for putting up with me - at times..
I am betting you feel this way about your wife @Ikaika
, as you said you can be stubborn, probably more your place to bring the olive branch...
I pretty sure it will be. Making up for us can be exciting.
Making up can be very passionate. I've said this before... Mine's accused me of fighting - just for make up sex a # of times over the past 8 yrs... I swear it's not true.. but yet.. I sure don't mind it either!
