First off I want to preface this by saying I am not a violent person at all. Ive been in a few physical altercations in my life but Ive never started one. However I do have a problem controlling what comes out of my mouth. When I am extremely pissed about something I say very hurtful things to people. I often realize it right after it happens and I have to apologize. Ive been this way since I was a kid and got in trouble for it several times as a youth.

Ive told myself many times that next time I will think before I speak, but then it happens again. I dont know if its immaturity, if its the way I was raised, or what but I really want to be able to control it because I don't like being this way. Anyone else have this problem? Any tips on how to control what you say when you're infuriated?

When you're about to say something hurtful to someone in your anger fit, count to 10 in your head. If you still feel like saying it, go right ahead.

Well, what prompted me to start the thread was this morning my gf started bitching at me and accused me of cheating on her because one of my ex's sent me a text asking how I was doing. I stayed calm, and explained to her that I cant help if someone else texts me. She kept on and finally I got pissed and told her that I was fucking her and that she was better than her even though I really haven't talked to her in months. After I said it I was like "damn did I really just say that?" She started crying and now Im on damage control. I know it was a horrible thing to say, and it was wrong but in the heat of the moment it just came out.

A competitive personality is part of an alpha males genetic wiring. Go back to our ancestral roots. Women like men who can lead, get shit done, and don't take shit off others. It's gradually being phased out today but still exists to a decent degree in many. Competitive people (real men) have higher testosterone levels and differ substantially neurophysiologically from the more modern beta nerds, who may as well be women. Basically, your actions are just part of being a man. However, the temper thing can also indicate depression. Combine a low grade depression and/or boredom with higher testosterone levels and you have a recipe for angry outburst. Neurochemically low dopamine, low cortisol, and higher testosterone are a perfect recipe for rage.

I would be pissed too. I hate getting blamed for shit I didn't do.

You need to turn it around on her. Tell her, "What difference does it make? Even when I'm faithful, you still won't believe me." Relationships are built on trust. If you can't trust each other, what's the point?

Don't apologize for anything! Sure, it was a bad joke, but she's the one making false accusations.

I get pissed off too easy at little stuff. I try to make myself shut up, and tell whomever (wife) has pissed me off to give me a second. Or, if your GF is barking at you, you could try and say "If you give me a second to talk without interruption - I'll explain".

Generally speaking for me, if I can get both me and the other person to just shut the fuck up for a few seconds, I can gather my emotions and not say anything stupid.

In stuff like this I just try to put myself in their shoes. Everything is said for a reason and at the end of the day people just want to know that their view point is heard.

You also have to breakdown what is reasonable and unreasonable. Just my opinion that it is reasonable to raise some concern over the text message. However I think it is unreasonable to automatically associate it with something bad going on or assuming you are sleeping with someone.

Her end is going like this...she prob knows youve been with a lot of people lately and she sees there is back channel communication and she doesnt know what is going on. She is filling this unknown with the worst case scenario and getting herself all worked up.

So you need to go to her and say "Hey, I could see why this is something that could upset you but I promise there is nothing going more than being a friend for this person. I am happy to tell you and show you any texts that come from though from her until you are satisfied that there isn't an issue"

Having said all that...I would bet money there is a reason she would automatically think you were banging this broad that texted you beyond the fact that she sent you this text message.

Battles like this are rarely fought in the place they actually come from.

Well thank God I asked for an example. You are the man, keep it up.

Seriously though, if you want to stop doing things like that talk to as many people as possible and try different things. If there's certain people you're exploding on repeatedly, then talk to them about it and make sure you pick a good time to talk to them about it. So if it's your girlfriend all the time, talk to her about it. That would honestly probably help a lot. If it's a bunch of different people, then maybe see a counselor or talk to someone who's opinion you trust on this sort of thing.

A woman or a man will never get over that, and if they do then they have major issues themselves.Sadly, this is pretty truthful. If your g/f doesn't trust you, you're going to have to get to the root of these things and have her talk through it with you in a rational manner. If she's incapable of doing that (like most women are when they get emotionally worked up) it doesn't bode well for the future time you're going to spend together.

This is exactly what I was going to say. Women don't ever forget the stupidest little things that you say or do. And what you said to her will haunt you for as long as you're in a relationship with her. My advice is to adjust your thinking towards you relationship with her at this time.
From this point on you might as well just treat her like a whor and just see how many times you can fuck her until she dunps your stupid ass.

Then go get yourself a dog. They can't talk back and when you get mad you can just kick the shit out of them.

Women always translate the unknown, in their minds, to the worst possible scenario. Now after your immature behavior I doubt if you will ever get her to trust you again. You admit yourself that you have always been this way. The only common denominator in all the f-ed up aspects of your life is _you_. I can only imagine the problems your kids are going to have in their lives due to this completely deficient example of manhood they have to learn from. (sorry if that sounds harsh)

I think you should start by accepting responsibility for your actions.

"It just slipped out."

"She did it too."

You always take what you do and try to make it out to be someone else's fault.

"It was how I was raised."

Deflection.

And there's usually some truth to what people say when they "snap." You told your current gf that an ex was better than her. I'm strongly guessing you really believe that. Actually, it really wouldn't surprise me if the sleeping with her now part wasn't a lie either.

I don't know about the specific situation with your gf, but in general I'd recommend getting the snot beat out of you a few times because of your tongue. Hire someone if you need to.



Heh, he could PM this dude.

Jesus, with guys like MTG out there, no wonder it took me so long to find a girl that wasn't completely fucked in the head.

Well, what prompted me to start the thread was this morning my gf started bitching at me and accused me of cheating on her because one of my ex's sent me a text asking how I was doing. I stayed calm, and explained to her that I cant help if someone else texts me. She kept on and finally I got pissed and told her that I was fucking her and that she was better than her even though I really haven't talked to her in months. After I said it I was like "damn did I really just say that?" She started crying and now Im on damage control. I know it was a horrible thing to say, and it was wrong but in the heat of the moment it just came out.

Now you have to have sex with the ex , so you don't become a liar too.
