    Don't know what to do

    I'm 16, my boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 months. Everything is usually okay but it seems like we argue over a lot of little things. I'm not sure how to get past it because it's causing us to fight like every day once or twice and it's just exhausting. I love him and I wouldn't break up with him over it but like I need something to change. I'm tired of fighting and I just want to enjoy our time together! This isn't as major a problem as some people have but please help me. He and I have talked about it before and we always resolve our issues but still it keeps happening.

    Hello Taygirl,

    It sounds like you and your boyfriend have an open line of communication when problems arise, and are able to resolve them as they come. I think it’s pretty great that you can talk and work through the issues. However, at this point, I can see that the two of you are having some struggles with arguing over some little things. That must be frustrating, and I’m really sorry for that. Can you pinpoint any certain topics that seem to cause the arguments? Maybe a certain time of day, or something stressful going on in one or both of your lives? It’s not uncommon for people to have disagreements with people that they spend a lot of time with, be it family members, close friends, and romantic partners. It’s all in how you’re able to talk, work through, and grow from it.

    It’s important to remember that it’s OK to take some time for self-expression as well. Maybe put some time into a hobby or learning something new. Taking walks, reading, baking, and writing are all great examples of activities! I’m willing to bet you could add a lot more to that list!

    I want you to know that we are all here for you! I hope you can work on resolving this! Let us know how it goes!
