Silent Treatment

This is a guy friend's question: Why make the communication hard as it is already for the the couple involve? What's with the silent treatment? Do you really want your guys to kneel down and beg for mercy for you girls to forgive them for their shortcomings? Why not just speak up and resolve things ASAP? Why make things harder for the two of you? I mean it would be practical, right? There's also this situation that almost happens all the time in a relationship when a guy asks the girl the question "Are you okay? Is there something wrong?" and then the girl says "No, it's nothing." even though she looks pissed off already about a certain situation which the guy is unaware. One more thing, regarding text or chat messages. Why do some of you, when asked about things, make this insinuation on text messages as well as chat: "Oh, really? It's up to you." When it obviously pertains that there is a complain waiting to be addressed? I mean, is that really it? You just want us to address it? If that's the case then I'd say "Why not just say you don't approve just to get things done with?" Not only on text messages but when talking face to face as well.

Well I think because they are afraid they will never talk to them again and move on to someone else... People actually have done this at least some friends that I know have mainly when they really get upset with their partner.. Some do things that get total silent treatment and sometimes unforgivable...

There is nothing worse than the silent treatment. In my last relationship this was something that happened quite often, but thankfully it never happens in this relationship. Whenever someone decides not to talk to me at all, I just get the feeling to give them all the space they need to be silent as they wish, and get away from that person.
