My relationship with my girlfriend is not going well. She’s short-tempered and we fight all

the time. What can I do to make our relationship work?

Anger and a short-temper are destructive, negative attitudes that can spoil any good relationship. Your partner needs some help to understand why she behaves like that.

Often such reactions are because of something that happened in her life before and she learned to react with anger to defend herself. Some people are aware of their anger issues but do not know how to help themselves. Then they need a professional therapist to help them through the process. Show her how her behaviour is pulling you apart.
