Something’s Gotta Give: How To Avoid Serious Conflict In A Relationship

Fix IT Before It's Too Late!

Even the happiest of couples have times when they disagree.

Being in a healthy relationship means being able to deal with conflicts as they arise without making things more difficult than they have to be.

Here are some ways to avoid serious confrontations and ensure that every argument has a positive outcome.

Compromise to solve an argument

Stick To One Subject

Often, arguments between partners can spiral out of control because neither will stick to the original issue.

A disagreement about who agreed to cook dinner one night can be turned into an argument about childcare, work or money in no time if things get heated.

Try to scale things back – looking at the bigger picture does not mean dragging every problem into one argument.

 

Compromise

All relationships thrive on compromise.

You will never have everything exactly as you want it all the time. Other than the important things which you feel you cannot concede (such as wanting to have children), everything in a relationship should be able to be negotiated between partners.

If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot compromise because you want different things, it’s time to find someone who fits with you.

Online dating is a good way of finding someone who is compatible and who wants the same things as you.

Dating sites like eHarmony (click here to visit their website) allow individuals to specify certain things they would like in a partner to prevent serious confrontations later on.

 

Look At Where The Argument Started

There are times when arguments are more common between partners, such as when one or both of you feel tired, stressed or you’re in a pressurised environment.

Think about why you’re arguing at this exact time – are you really angry or are there other factors? Are you fed up with each other or are you in a supermarket on a busy Saturday and they’ve run out of everything you need?

When you can see how other circumstances can contribute to your feelings, you’ll be less likely to let things escalate.

Talk out the problem, calmly

See The Other Person’s Concerns

Many people make the mistake of thinking that when their partner is angry or frustrated at them, it’s entirely to do with the relationship.

In reality if your partner is concerned about something, it doesn’t have to be a threat to you. Being able to remember that you will never be the sole cause of each other’s frustration will help to discover the real problem.

Finding and keeping love long term can be a challenge and it’s important to learn how to respect each other before making a commitment. By searching for someone special based on their age, interests, location and goals, disagreements can be minimised from the start as both partners will want the same things. This is why more and more people every year are looking for love online in Melbourne, Sydney and all across Australia.
