Fighting with a romantic partner feels worse than fighting with a family member, a coworker, or anyone else you know. There’s a reason for that too: you’re chemically bonded to your partner. If you’ve been together for a while, your body is used to certain hormonal changes when you’re near your partner. Those hormonal changes are mostly good (if you’re with the right person) and your body becomes dependent on them. So when you fight with your partner, you can almost feel like you’re sick because the usual feel-good hormones and chemicals you experience around him are off balance. In a sense, when you fight with your partner, you feel like you’re fighting with yourself because internally everything feels messed up. Naturally, you want fights with a partner to be over as soon as possible. But there might be things you do that make your fights even worse.

Aside from those mythical unicorn couples who claim they never fight (no one actually believes them, right?), a disagreement here and there is normal … even healthy. But think back to the last time you and your significant other had a fight — were you thinking about possible ways to resolve the conflict and how you could understand your partner better? Or were you focusing on how upset, angry, and frustrated you were feeling in that moment? Researchers say that your answer may reveal something about your relationship.

A recent study looked at 71 unmarried heterosexual couples who had been together an average of three years. First, researchers had participants complete a survey about their relationship satisfaction and conflict issues in the relationship. Then, each person in the couple spoke to a researcher aloud while communicating about a topic of conflict with their partner (in a separate room) via a chat program. The couples had 10 minutes to talk about a point of conflict (everything from amount of time spent together and  money to  past dating relationships and alcohol use) and come to a resolution. You know, just a typical weekend night for the average couple!

The results of the study found that during discussion about relationship conflict, when one person thinks about making excuses or denying their role in the disagreement while the disagreement is going on, the other partner was likelier to be unhappy in the relationship. Those in unhappy relationships were also more likely to want to change the subject of discussion, to think more about how repetitive the discussion felt, to think about the power they or their partner had in the relationship, and to focus on emotions like anger and frustration— none of which is super beneficial to a relationship.


Taking The High Road? Frank Ocean Says He Won’t Be Pressing Charges Against Chris Brown

While we still don’t know who really started this little rumble in the parking lot between Chris Brown, Frank Ocean and their friends last Sunday, we do know that Chris feels persecuted and Frank believes that Chris is the one who started it.

While there were earlier reports from an LA County Sheriff’s department spokesperson that Ocean might be seeking to file charges against Brown, according to MTV, he is now saying that isn’t true. Ocean took to his favorite place, Tumblr, to speak his mind:

As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer. I’m an artist and a modern person. I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what i want in my short life. Peace.

That’s definitely a way to let this entire thing burn out from Ocean’s stance.  One could call it very “zen” of him to just let the whole thing ride, especially considering that it wouldn’t take much for anyone to believe that Brown was at fault.

It remains unclear if Brown is considering filing charges against Ocean seeing as though most reports state that Ocean and his friends started it.   Perhaps it is best if they both just accept that they don’t like each other and avoid each other as much as possible.

Oh, to be young, rich and seemingly live with no consequences. Then again, a fight can happen to anyone, right?

When’s the last time you had a fight?

Oh, That’s What It Is? Suge Knight Says Katt Williams Isn’t Crazy – He Has A Short Fuse!

"Suge PF"

Reggie Collier/

It appears Katt Williams and Suge Knight are now besties. We’ve heard about Katt Williams bugging out almost every week for the last month or so and finally – finally – Suge Knight has stepped up to tell us what the real problem is.

In regards to all his recent problems, Suge says this isn’t Katt’s fault. He told TMZ,  “People test him because he’s small and the best comedian of all time.”

Of. All. Time.

The two were together in Seattle when Katt was arrested for being in a bar fight.  Knight says they were watching the Seattle Seahawks/Chicago Bears football game – rooting for Chicago – and some fans were offended, so to speak.  Allegedly, they started the fight so of course, Katt had to defend himself against the angry Seahawks fans. Knight says people do this all the time – starting trouble with Katt – and he “just don’t take no sh!t.”

By the way, Suge also likened Katt’s problems to those of Mike Tyson and the late Richard Pryor while they were in their glory years saying, “That’s what happens when you’re the best in the business. Sometimes you just have rough times.”

Clearly, Suge had a lot to say and doesn’t appreciate the way Katt has been “portrayed” by the media. But if he’s a real friend, hopefully, he’s trying to get in Katt’s ear as well and tell him he doesn’t have to react to everyone that “bothers” him.

Up Out My Face, Boy: 6 Signs You’ve Checked Out Of Your Relationship

A wise man once said that if you take the amount of time a couple has been together and divide it by two, you’ll get the amount of time that they’ve been breaking up. A relationship never just ends the moment both parties agree to go their separate ways. Just as it takes time for a bond to be formed, it also takes time for a bond to be broken. Women are infamous for holding onto relationships well after they’ve started falling apart, even if they themselves have checked out of the relationship. Here are a few signs that you’ve done just that.

When your significant other does or says something that upsets you — depending on the size of the affront and the depth of your reaction — you might shut down and stop listening, especially if your partner’s tone conveys judgment or derision. You may withdraw for a period of time or retaliate with criticism of your own. Either behavior results in a negative circle of energy and delays understanding and healing. Help!
