Mine loves game shows, where he shouts out his answer, repeating it until the answer does appear.<br />
He also talks and asks me questions constantly while watching TV.<br />
He has a hearing loss, so uses a headset which gives him more volume from the TV, without blaring the volume.<br />
However, since the headset makes him hear only the TV...he often whistles, too.<br />
I can't stand it.
HI katnipkitkat <br />
One way if you have the facility is to pause the show and talk. Then carry on when he has finished. This will tame him or you will be watching the same show for days!<br />
That short fuse stuff is a control game. Why the need to be in control of you? Maybe work on that taking Time out doing things alone teaching him he does not need to control you for you to come back?<br />
I dunno really just thinking.<br />
Best wishes<br />
Ignore him, or shhhhhh him and tell him you'll begin the conversation during the next commercial or when the show ends. He may not like it but you are not his puppet either to be doing what he pleases.
cover his mouth with ur hand handgaging does wonders trust me i know
This guy seems like a great catch. If he chases other women he's a total zero. Please don't tell me he does that too.
Sit on the floor infront of the tv like a child would. If he asks why, say there is too much background noise in this house and I can't hear the show!
You're rather pathetic really. So what's the difference?
Get headphones then he can talk all he wants, give him a tape recorder and tell him to talk to that and you will listen later.
Sounds like you've got bigger problems than him talking over the tv.
Buy some really chewy lollies for tv time
Set aside some special talking time.
Kiss him to shut him up and keep one one glued on the tv lol.<br />
Ummmmm maybe try resting your head on his chest while you both watch. Most people wont talk with someone pressed on their ribcage lol. If he does talk, tell him to shut up and be a good pillow hahhaha
I think it could be the alcohol that causes this lecturemouth - I believe the motormouthed ladies in 'The Gilmore Girls' had to have been secret drinkers - you could watch this show with him and maybe the talking will cancel eachother out to create silence. Then watch Dexter. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with this bottle? the lectures and the stench and the short fuse that anything could set off.
