You may think you are making your displeasure known, but this kind of passive-aggressive behaviour is actually counterproductive. In the long run, it will damage the bond the two of you share.
One fib or two will not take a toll on the relationship is what you think, right? You may even convince yourself that your lies are small, and therefore, inconsequential. Wrong. Trust that is broken cannot be regained easily.
Making a scene in public
Your partner may infuriate you. But a public place isn’t where you voice your disagreements. It only embarrasses your partner and makes you look like a child in front of strangers.
Withholding sex as punishment
This is a no-no. Using sex as a form of reward or punishment devalues the intimacy you share as a couple. It no longer remains one of the many ways of sustaining a healthy relationship.
If you have forgiven your partner for a past transgression, forget about it and let it go. Bringing it up in future fights serves no purpose, apart from giving your ego a tiny boost.
Testing your partner’s loyalty
Last but not the least, do not keep putting your partner to test. It will only backfire in the long run. Instead, choose to focus on the positives of your relationship and work on your own flaws.
