Angry partner
Hi all
I have been with this guy for 4 months now. He is sort of ok! but he gets angry over nothing. Time and again I am the one who eases the tension and apologise indirectly (calling him,etc). He told me of his "worst" past, that he had to be independent at the age of 10 after his mother died and he grew up so bad that he doesn't trust people. He said he always thinks that everyone is against him and want to attack him, including me. Well, about counselling, he won't got there because he is "normal", in his own words. Now, although I love him and he is always at home, buys me roses every fortnight, kisses me before and after work (all those moochy stuff!), he really gets angry for days. For instance, I would tell him that I'm not in the mood for s*x tonite and he would go angry for 4 days in a row. He just keeps quiet and never call me from work. Now, I have booked a weekend awa for us in Sept. and I'm thinking of cancelling in case he gets angry again and doesn't speak to me. He gets angry over absolutely nothing. Beats me!!

Wgt sghould one have to work so had for a "sort of OK" relationship ? If he's so certai that he is too normal to benefit from counselling, then he cannot use any problems in his past as an excuse for ANy problems he causes such as by his anger. He sounds immature and unstable, and in need of counselling
Old School's suggestion would be a very tactful way of dealing with the specific problem you mentioned
