frustration is the order of the day, especially in Canada, when u running late and those chinese dumb drivers are driving slow.

When it is humid and u have to jump the train.

When you get your paycheck and see how much taxes are being deducted

a verbally abusive woman is the equivalent of a physically abusive man. since men are more physical n women r more verbal. we all know which is the more dangerous n deserves jail time. hahah

So are they stressed all the time? What I just mention is a way of life with them, watching tv, reading newspapers, clicking on the computers etc,

Have u ever noticed that they could be naggy during the time of the month?

When they are stressed.

But i just think men needs to be understanding and just do all they can to calm them down

I've read all the replies. I still believe that women nag when men don't do their responsibilities but just lazing around watching TV, on the computer, reading newspapers etc,

What is Nagging?

Have you ever thought about what nagging is? Here are some related terms for nagging:

faultfinding, continually complaining, criticism, catty, carping, coaxing, cynical, demanding, dunning, hairsplitting, insistent, nit-picking, overcritical, peevish, persistent, pestering, pettish, pressing, quibble, recurring, relentless, shrewish, slam, swipe, unrelenting, urging, and wheedling.

The Vicious Cycle of Nagging

Nagging can become a vicious cycle. The more you nag, the more your mate avoids you or withdraws both emotionally and physically from you, so the more you nag.

Is this really how you want to live?

Why Nagging Doesn't Work

Even though your gripes may be valid, nagging makes your spouse resentful.

Nagging makes your spouse defensive.

Nagging puts you in the parent role, and your spouse in the child role. This isn't healthy for your marriage relationship.

Nagging is disrespectful.

Nagging is often perceived as criticism, so your spouse may tune out making what you are saying ineffective.

When your spouse is being nagged, he/she probably feels attacked personally.

Nagging can make your spouse feel inadequate.

Ways to Avoid Being a Nag

Don't blame.

Don't demean.

Don't attack.

Don't criticize.

Avoid making your spouse feel silly.

Don't give in to your frustration and do your spouse's chores. Your mate needs to learn to deal with the logical consequences of being messy.

Instead of Nagging, Try Positive Approaches

Share your feelings.

Stick to the issue at hand.

Keep your statements brief so they don't turn into long lectures.

Don't make ultimatums.

Avoid using the phrases, "You always, " and "You never, "

Consider saying "would you" or "will you" rather than "could you" or "can you". There's a subtle difference in the way the request will be heard by your spouse.

Set a good example in picking up after yourself, putting your clothes away or in the hamper, leaving the bathroom is good shape after your shower or bath, eating healthy foods, exercising, etc.

Try to brainstorm solutions with your spouse.

Acknowledge your different perspectives regarding chores and housekeeping expectations.

Show your appreciation when your spouse does put dishes in the dishwasher, or picks up a towel, turns off the television to take a walk with you, or when dirty clothes end up in the hamper.

See what happens if you stop nagging.

If you are the One Being Nagged

Accept your responsibility in helping to create a home environment that has triggered a nagging response in your spouse.

Honestly evaluate your attitude about chores, picking up after yourself, annoying habits, and more.

Ask yourself if you have a pattern of avoidance when it comes to chores or other issues.

If you ignore your mate's requests or refuse to even acknowledge that you heard what your spouse has said to you, stop this behavior. Really try to listen and to respond to your spouse. It is okay to say no. At least your spouse will know you heard what was said.

Maybe men nag too. But they labelled the women as naggers, not the men.

Men play the fool and so women has to nag or complain.

@chuckba$$

i tink u r a degenerate!

topic

i hv only nagged wt a guy i was too much in love wt, but b4 and aftr then, i'v never nagged or should i say, not dt i dont complain, i just dont shout or raise my voice when doin it.

when i'm ignored or offended by my guy, my anger has a way of keepin my voice unusually low. dont know y dt is though?

solution: men can try to be a lil bit more sensitive and attentive and women should also try to ignore some tins dt r nt so important
