I'd explain my feelings, while using examples of what behaviour or comments specifically hurt me. If I was in a conversation that was heated, however, I'd probably take a breather in between for a little 'cool off' and thought collecting time. Arguing gets no one anywhere. Having a little cool off time can get people a lot further. You just have to calmly touch base on the issue that was at hand again when you're both feeling better.
If I was in a relationship with someone who constantly wasn't very respectful to my feelings, however, I think I may personally take a step back to reevaluate things. People who care about each other or love each other should care about their partner and think before they speak.
We've talked about it a lot. Somehow it doesn't seem to work even though he claims to be working on that but a lot of times especially on extremely touchy topics, I don't see ANY work done on it.
Try reminding him that he was supposed to be working on it, when he does it. Explain that you don't see any improvement, and you wish he would try a bit harder, at least enough to see a change.
how can it be worse when she feels this way?
something has to be done, shes already told him once and he agreed now hes gone back on his word
actions speak louder than words :)
if he isnt been sensitive towards your feelings when youve already told him and he agreed he would, do similiar things he does, he will soon realise :)
Talk to them about it, and tell them you wish they would be more sensitive towards your feelings. Tell them why, and that it's important for your relationship.
Sorry. :( That must be a really tough situation. All you can do is try and talk some sense into him, or hope for him to change I guess. :/
Oddly enough, that always seems to start a fight as both of us are quite hot- tempered. Thanks though :)
Getting back by doing the same to them just makes things worse.
