How To Win An Argument With Your Girlfriend

Every couple gets into an argument eventually, and it isn’t a fun-filled event for either party. Women tend to have a little more leeway with expressing their emotions when angry because today’s society is so quick to jump at a man for abuse, or other violent crime  for just raising his voice. Women also tend to have the upper hand in a healthy relationship whether the man will admit it or not. So here is a list of things you can do to win an argument against your wife/girlfriend/significant other.

1. Forget “relax” ever existed in your vocabulary.- The worst thing you could possibly say when your girlfriend is mad is “relax”. Because once you mention the R word, World War III has officially erupted in your home. If she is already on the brink of killing you, saying this word will only push her over the edge. Other unacceptable words and phrases that I highly suggest you stay away from include “take it easy”, “calm down”, “just breath”, “settle down”, and any other form of these phrases. If you slip up and say any one of these, don’t say I didn’t tell you so when she goes commando on your ass and shoves a knife through your esophagus.

2. Avoid blaming her.- The last thing every woman wants to hear when your fighting is “you, you, you”. This is probably the only time she will let you put the “I” before “you”. Instead of blaming her for what she is doing wrong and calling her out on it by saying “You always do….”, or “You don’t do…”, you can say something more like “I feel like I’m not being heard when…”, or “I don’t understand why…”. This will make her feel more comfortable and understanding, and less aggressive. You want to win the argument by making her cave in because she regrets what has been said or done, not because you so overwhelmingly make her feel like crap.

3. Empty threats are empty.- It’s as simple as that. Don’t make empty threats because it will do you no good. 90% of the time an empty threat will come to bite you in the ass. Women are like wolves waiting to pounce on their prey (you). If you decide to give them a choice between Option A and Option B, they will ALWAYS choose Option C. That option involves doing the exact thing you want them NOT to do, and then using it against you, or turning it on you in some way, shape, or form. If you do make a threat to break up with her, or whatever the threat is, make sure you have the kahunas to follow through with it. Which brings me to my next tip…

4. Love takes Balls- No one ever said love would come easy. Especially in today’s society where divorces happen left and right. Sometimes you have to wake up in the morning and take a good look in the mirror and notice those two dangly things in between your legs. A good way to avoid an argument with your significant other in the first place is to have some balls. Don’t be afraid to tell them when something upsets you, because chances are things will just build up and escalate until you have a fight so large the relationship is impossible to repair. Speaking your mind isn’t a bad thing as long as you control yourself and do it maturely.

5. Fib Don’t Lie- Occasional fibbing is not the end of the world. Lieing on the other hand, can be. This is the most important rule to follow on this post so pay attention. When you don’t know what you did wrong, and she asks you the question every woman asks…”You don’t even know what you did, do you?”, nod your head and look like you regret what you’ve done. She is counting on you to say “What did I do, JUST TELL ME. PLEASE.” So when you respond “Yes, I’m sorry…Would you like to talk about it?” or “Tell me how you feel about it.”, she won’t know what hit her. This is probably the toughest strategy because what you have to say to your significant other can vary depending on who you are arguing with but either way it’ll by you some time to regroup and possibly think about what you did to piss her off in the first place.
