Women and their PMS (12)

1 Name: argh : 2006-11-14 16:51 ID:22jEgVN9

Hello 4-ch. I am in a relationship with this woman and we are having a great time. But when the time of that month comes she turns cranky and very sensitive. I also am a very sensitive person (she tells me that I am the most sensitive guy she has ever seen) and it really hurts me when she gets mad for no reason and says very mean things to me during that time. Is she just over-sensitive or is every woman like this when that time comes? and do all men have to take this madness when women are pmsing? How do you get over this monthly desperation?

Tell her you understand what she is going through but she doesn't need to disrespect you. Though she is going through a biological process that gives her mood swings, but it certainly doesn't give her the right to insult you.

> is every woman like this when that time comes?

I don't know.

ps. It's really annoying to have your opinions dismissed for that reason. Women can be legitimately angry/sad/emotional at any time.

Though you are sensitive, you also have to learn how to be empathetic at the same time. It's a lot about knowing what your partner feels and for what reasons. Only then can you really act accordingly. It may only be hormones, but you still have to find some way to deal with it. If you can't be empathetic to a great degree, communication in a proper manner usually is the solution.

I do respect her and her opinions and I know how she feels when something goes wrong. It's just that she blames me for everything and I am the one who apologizes every time. Even though it was she who did something wrong, I somehow end up apologizing. It is very rare to hear 'sorry' from her, and I feel very grateful when she admits her faults. I want to forgive her in anyway I can.

stop calling her? sheesh, take a hint.

when she wants to talk to people again, she'll call you. unless you've driven her batshit in the meantime by trying to talk to her when she clearly doesn't want to talk.

My ex was like your lady OP. She thinks it's alright to not give me the respects any person should be given just because of her hormones... granted she also had a child growing inside her until it was aborted ... but yeah, why is it that some women like my ex think it's absolutely fine to treat her guy like a nobody just because of her hormones?!

Maybe it is because you all let them walk all over you.

I didn't let her though. I call her out on that one. Granted, I decided to take her aside to talk about it when we were eating out with this JP exchange student, so she didn't like me doing that. But even so, I can tell she didnt like it when I tried to say I don't like how she's treating me.

Yeah, you could have talked to her when you were alone and not in public.

Ah well, I was pissed off and my head was overheated... I never could keep it cool when my head overheats.
