Never Go to Bed Mad

Heartbreak, Love

The things he (or you) should never say while fighting.

The folks at had a tidy little list of things you should never say in the midst of an argument. Things you’ll regret. For real. Just a few that we whole-heartedly second:

You’re a lousy lover!

First off, we don’t think anyone would say it quite like that. Might be more along the lines of size, enthusiasm, and/or ability, but we won’t get into that here. Suffice it to say, doling out a sex critique is almost impossible to recover from—for both parties.

“Why Can’t You Be More like [insert ex’s name here]?”

Ouch. No commentary needed here. Just never say it. Ever.
