A female United States age 18-21, *akia2014 writes:

So, my boyfriend and I have been fighting a lot, and it's all about really dumb stuff. Most of it is my fault, because I have a really bad temper and things make me mad very easily. We've been dating for about 3 months, but you'd think by now he'd know not to say/do certain things. I know that I should not get mad so easily..but I still do. Anyway, I was going to break up with him the other day, but decided I would wait a while to see how things went. I just don't know if I should still break up with him or if you could please, just please help me... :(

You should probably end it, not because he did anything wrong, but because you need some time to sort some things out. Getting mad for no reason is common in high school relationships. People that age are full of emotion, hormones, and tons of other fun pubescent things that make them walking balls of drama and rage.

You're still very young, don't make a big deal out of it. For the safety of his own confidence however, make sure that he knows its because you have anger issues and its causing the fights. If you have already acknowledged you're at fault on this website, you need to acknowledge it in real life as well. Maybe if you really really like this person, some day you can get back together when you're both more mature and ready to face the rollercoaster ride that is a relationship.

The Realist agony auntI think you should end because you should never expect him to just know not to say certain things unless they are directly mean. He has the right to say what he wants and it'll help you out alot in relationships if you just never expect thing like that to fix themselves. You need to talk to the person because no one is a mind reader and he may be confused as to why you are even mad at him.

I say end it because I know those thoughts are on your mind and I think that you are serious about it. When you are at that point I really have never seen any relationship survive unless it has been going on for quite some time. You don't want to let the relationship drag on at any point in your life.
