I need some respect (4)

THE SITTUATION: there is a guy.
He is agressive and gets angry, but at the same time he is extremely soft, caring and protective of me.
The main issue is that we are both agressive and big headed, so arguments become more frequent over pitty situations because no one wants to loose and we both persist, ive now learnt to stand down alot more than i used to, too help keep peace.

Guys are hard to argue with because we play by a different set of rules. But we defend ourselves to our last dying breath even when we KNOW we're wrong, because we hate admitting we messed up. Yes, we're trying to save face, but we're also trying to please the girl. If we admit we're wrong, we admit we didn't please her.

>>2 hit the nail on the head.
Just coyly play it off with a little dash of good sarcasm - Not enough to set him off, but just enough to send the message across - "I know you're wrong, but it's OK, I'll play along"

Don't go all emotional when arguing with a guy...use rational arguments, explain your point of view calmly instead of getting upset when you disagree with each other
