6. He Picks Fights
Some men feel guilty about having an emotional affair so they pick fights with you in order to justify their behavior by making you the bad guy. I’m sure he has convinced himself that the reason he’s spending more time with her rather than with you is because it’s somehow your fault. Maybe he feels that you don’t give him what he wants, but this woman does so it’s your fault for making him turn to her for comfort and solace. Maybe he feels you don’t give him enough sex, attention, affection – whatever – so he nitpicks or bickers with you instead of having a real heart to heart about the state of your relationship. Try to get to the real reason for the argument and ask him if there is anything that he feels is lacking in your relationship. If he opens up and shares with you, great. But if he shuts down, your relationship might be too far gone for repair. It’s not to say that you should give up; if you care, try to take a deep look into where your relationship stands to get to the root of his bitterness. If you don’t care, then keep it moving.
