The Top 10 Argument Triggers For Couples

According to a new study, bathroom behaviors are to blame for triggering the majority of couples’ average of 312 fights a year, with kitchen cleanliness coming in a close second.

I’ve been with my boyfriend for about seven months, and things are going amazingly. For the first time in my life, I feel emotionally healthy and secure with myself. I spent a year being single, working on loving myself and I’m no longer battling the constant fear that the man I’m with will abandon me and nobody will love me.

I’m not afraid that he doesn’t love me, and even if he doesn’t yet, I know things are heading in that direction.

I don’t want the constant anxiety and tears, always thinking that I’m not good enough to be loved. What should I do? Should I face my fears and tell him how I feel? Or should I be patient, and wait until he’s ready to say the words first? And how long do you think it takes the average man to say “I love you”? — Waiting To Hear The Words
