Idk Wtf Got Into Him

So over the past day or two Kris and I have been having this little battle i guess you can say. every time Kris texts me and he misspells a word he feels a need to send the whole message all over again. i told him he didn't have to do that because i understood what he was saying 99% of the time but he still does it anyways. well yesterday i was only joking but i told him that i never mess up and we got into this argument about it i never thought anything of it because it was something small. well today somehow the topic came up again and at first we were joking about laughing and everything it and then all of a sudden i could, tell that he was starting to get mad because his answer to all my texts started to be k not ok just k. so i asked him what the whole k was about because i know that's usually him being mad at me. and then out of no where he says i hate when you don't admit sh!t. i'm like whoa back up i didn't know i was making you mad i was only joking about that stuff. I've learned in the past that to deal with Kris being mad i just need to give him space so i told him to do something and cool off and texts me later.

Honestly it does bug me when he does that. I truly understand that they do need their buddy time. So i would always tell my bf. That if he was gona go with his friends just to stop txt me and just txt me back when he wasnt with them. That works a bit better and well i would do the same. Hope everything gets better!!!

I'm sorry, your story I'm sure wasn't meant to make me laugh out loud, but it did. Marines are a tough species, I know only too well. Being much older than you, I"m sad to say it only gets better (not) hang in there our men are never the same after the intense reprogramming they go through during "boot-camp" aka brainwashing camp. On my first date years ago, we had gone to "Applebees" we were seated by the door, (of course he had to sit where he could see everything that was going on..I learned that much later) I digress, after ordering our drinks some kid popped a balloon and all "hell" broke loose, he dropped to the floor, I had no clue WTH was going on, I laughed so hard!! 20plus years later I'm still laughing at the little things that define him as "USM". Seriously, it's a tough road to travel, but if he's your hero, take him wit a grain of salt & laugh your butt off (when he's not around)

I know i shouldn't have laughed at the situation too but i did not around him of course. I would rather go through tough times with Kris than to not have him in my life at all. it'll take time to adjust to his marine ways but i know i can do it. loud noises don't really bother him but he can never sleep at night. He is my hero and i think i'm falling in love with my hero which is weird for me because I've never expressed those words to anyone never even thought of it.

Hi missmyKris21,

I've been reading your stories and I see you and your Marine are having a few "battles" lately :) How old is he? And where is he at? I mean is he on training or deployed (you may have said it, sorry, I have here only one month). What I have seen, from the outside, is that you are always getting him mad, but its all for silly things. Do you see a pattern? I mean, fights for silly things are not worth it, if there have to be an argument for things that are not acceptable in the relationship so be it, but not for little things, that only ruins the relationship.

Go back on your steps and see what is the thing that makes him get mad, and come up with a solution. I joke a lot with my Marine, all the time. I'm always saying Army is best, Navy is best and he always jokes back at me. One time he was on a shooting range and he did bad, and Mis Genius here came up with the joke: oh that is why the Army is better...guess what? there was an explosion of fury haha so I've been more careful since then.

Tell me what you feel about what i just wrote

:)

Yea,he is deployed. He's 26 I'm still learning about my man. He's not really the talk about and express my feeling type we've only been together for a few months and I know he's slowly starting to open up to me but he stil holds things back so sometimes I don't know if little things I say makes him angry and half the time he won't tell me. But I'm trying to be more careful in what I say to him. In the beginning when we first started to date I told Kris I had a mouth meaning I say things without thinking first and I'm trying to control that. He's told me hed help me with that. He usually tells me when something is wrong but yesterday it just came out of no where. I think he had become a bit cranky because of what happened with my ex

Yes, the ex boyfriend situation was a lot, more if they are deployed. Let us know how it goes

I told my boyfriend he was furious asked for my exes name i gave it to him feeling like i made a mistake because i don't want him doing anything horrible that would get him in trouble. i found out recently that when my ex was arrested for harassment they found drugs on him and he was arrested for that too so idk what his jail time is looking like.

I would suggest asking him to do what I do when you are texting...Just put an asterisk (*) first then respell the miss-spelled word and just send that. It's something my friends and I always do and it keeps us from having to re-type the whole message and helps us understand what the other is trying to say (especially if we have been drinking and miss-spell a lot!). I think it was a good idea to tell him to take some time to himself too. I know with my bf we don't always realize until it is too late that the other is getting upset and we just need to take some time. From what you posted it sounds like he is commenting on the fact that you sometimes miss-spell a word and don't correct yourself (and I'm sure that is only because it is human error and you don't even notice it). Just try to remind him that you do make mistakes too and that if you do to politely (or jokingly) point it out to you (as you do to him). It sounds to me like he thinks that you always point out his mistakes (trying to joke or not) and he feels like he doesn't do that to you so it's not fair. I do it to my family and bf all the time with their English (mostly my dad, because my mom's dad was an English major and teacher) and my bf loves to correct me when I'm wrong because of it, but we have learned to make it a joke and not get upset over it. Anyhow, my whole point is maybe you two can come to a compromise so no one will get upset. :) good luck!

I don't always point out his mistakes. I never have that's why Idk why he got so angry so fast
