Quick Pint At The Pub

by Darren
(Leicester)



I have a partner that is currently not able to see that I have changed and things around me are no longer as important in life as they were. I am divorced. We split up after we argued too much.

We were arguing about our children and money, which did not help the relationship and we split for a time. During this time I used all sorts of sites and contacts to fulfill my needs. Once I divorced my wife, I started a relationship with a lovely caring woman that I am still seeing. We had a long discussion about history and the past and I disclosed what I had done.


We have been seeing each other for sometime now (2 years) and have had problems since I disclosed all--possibly a bad thing in hindsight.

The tale I regale today is a simple one. It is the 29th of December and a good colleague is working in the same office as me this week. So I thought after a quick decision that we might as well go for a quick pint in the pub. Unfortunately this was not planned with my partner who is now very upset that I did not advise her.

This is a typical flash point, but recently I have began to ignore her rants and attempts to upset me. She uses history as a weapon to try to upset and anger me so she can get a response. If I do respond, it can be a snap and usually means I have lost control and escalation happens where we are shouting at each other.

I can be a very snappy person, if pushed way beyond a normal argument. Is there anything I can actually do to help with my anger issues.
