icecream1414 Posted May 7, 2010 Share Posted May 7, 2010 He has a job, but is looking for a new one and applying all over the place (I don't mind moving, but can't get a job in some of the places he's applying). I say I'd like to discuss where he's applying. He takes this as criticism and I get angry that we can't talk about it. He goes into a sulk. Eventually, I grovel and apologise and say I'll never mention his job applications again. Repeat cycle every 2 weeks. Most recent sulk accompanied by threats to leave. How can we improve communication? I hate that there are "taboo" subjects in the relationship. I hate that I can't control myself getting angry. And I hate that his response is to shut down and sulk. I've suggested counselling, he's said that he can't even talk to ME about his feelings, let alone a stranger. Has anyone read any books that might help, or know any strategies? Link to comment
