my boyfriend is a victim of that..but i guess nagging is just a kind of releasing some "steam" inside you. if you don't let it out, you'll explode! men deserve it anyway. they're all har headed. hehe!!

I don't think nagging helps in a relationship if you want your partner to change something or to do better. He/she might interpret it in a way other than what you are pushing through and might just complicate things. I guess it would be better to say things outright in a normal conversation without getting the other being annoyed by nagging.

No nagging doesn't help to solve any problem. It will worsen the situation. Talking to each other in a nice and gentle will be the best way to solve the problem. coz if you nag to your partner he/she won't listen because it annoying to hear someone Nag.

I don't think that nagging is an effective way to change someone or a situation. The person that you are "nagging" knows after the first time what the message is that you are trying to convey; they are choosing to ignore it for some reason. I find that it is more effective to open up the lines of communication and come to an agreement or compromise rather than to waste my time nagging or to irritate my boyfriend with repetitive nagging which will only anger him and cause him to be defensive.
