Who should start to settle a conflict?... or to initiate reconciliation? Who do you think? Does gender matter at all in resolving conflict in relationships? I don't think so, how about you? Who usually initiate peace process in the family? Thanks for sharing!

I think the one who ideally should initiate reconciliation is the one who needs to apologize or if that's not a factor, then the person who has it in their heart to settle the conflict is the person who should do so. Relationships are so complicated aren't they? Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

Usually man should start to settle conflict. Depend on situation. Sometimes woman should settle conflict among each other. Usually woman initiate problem and man going to settle. Conflict should be solve be man and woman together and this is the best way to get rid of it. Having conflict is normal and life would be bore without it.

Who shall initiate peace making? No gender rule, actually. But on my part with my boyfriend, he always does the initiation. I have a high pride than him and he cannot win any argument over me. lol...But, there are times that I would be sweet and initiate though it is rare.

There's nothing wrong about it, actually. For as long as you want the relationship to succeed, you can give up pride once in a while! Thanks for the response!

i don't think it matters because it should be the one in the wrong however as a general rule I always try to settle the conflict amicably because you can't really win an argument with a woman so i tend not to try :)

I think who do the conflict will the one who move first but some people have too high of pride that even though they are wrong they insist to be right and make the conflict worsen.For me it is better that you will talk it seriously then what's wrong and settle it.Gender doesnt matter if you love someone then fight for them dont ever think negative because of what others think that it is bad.Yes definitely, because if you talk it in a peace way there will be an understanding.
