    Me & my boyfriend have been arguing all day long. Literally all day. Not even over anything serious, just petty childishness from both of us I will admit. He has an attitude where he will never, ever admit he is wrong. So you guessed it, it is me that's always in the wrong. How annoying , eh? lol ... its been a long time since we have had arguments all day long..whats the best way to break the ice and try and remain more 'friendly'? :)

    Just say to him "Darling.... (or whatever!)..... what is going to become of our relationship if I am forever in the wrong?....... How do you think it makes me feel?"........ That might dislodge something in his brain :)

    p.s. could you please tell me how you got your avatar back?

    Get yourself a white board or a flip chart. Each time during the day that you both disagree/argue about something, stop and write it down. At the end of the day, each of you pick ONE item from the list that is the most important of all the items and debate that one item. If you do this, I promise you will both quickly discover how to avoid the petty disagreements and to focus on those things that are primary of importance.

    We use this method, in a different way (problem solving and idea brainstorming) in business all the time.
