7 Practical tips to stop fighting with your girlfriend

Stop Fighting and Apologize Every couple will fight now and again but it can put a strain on the relationship so you should try to avoid it as much as possible. You could apologize when you’re wrong or work on having good communication skills to build a healthier relationship with your girlfriend.

1) Apologize

Accepting responsibility for something you’ve done can avoid a fight if you’re sincere. She’ll see that you’re making an effort and will be less likely to get upset when you make another mistake.

2) See things from her point of view

Before getting upset at your girlfriend take some time to see things from her point of view to understand how she’s feeling. Seeing things from another perspective might help you realize that you’re wrong or it might give you an idea of how to fix things because you’ll have a better idea of what’s upsetting her. Be honest when doing this and leave your emotions out of it to get a more accurate view.

3) Good communication skills

Work on having good communication skills with your girlfriend so that fighting can be avoided over long term. When you think a fight is about to start you should calm down and talk things through. This will teach both of you how to deal with issues in a mature way and you can use this skill whenever a problem occurs to stop it from getting worse.

4) Take a break

When you feel like you’re about to lose your temper it’s best to take a break and spend some time by yourself. This will remove you from the situation and give you a chance to get your emotions under control. Do something you enjoy to take your mind off the issue and only go back to your girlfriend when you feel like you’re able to act in a calm way. After some time has passed you might find that you’re no longer upset and the fight will be avoided.

5) Think things through

Think about whether or not the issue is worth fighting about because it might be better to just forget about it. Think about whether either of you are overreacting and if it’s her then give her space so she doesn’t get more worked up. Also figure out what started the problem so that you can avoid it happening again in the future as well as thinking about how you can resolve the issue as smoothly as possible.

6) Let go of the past

When an issue has passed it’s best to let it go and don’t bring it up again because it could bring up old feelings. When you’ve forgiven her for something that should be the end of it and if you’re tempted to throw it back in her face remember that it could make things worse because you’re adding another problem to the fight.

7) Remember why you love her

When you’re going through a rough patch you should think about why you love your girlfriend because this can bring back positive feelings. Focus on her good qualities and think about what your future with her might look like because this can make problems seem small and not worth fighting about.
