How to avoid an argument?

What do you do when your lover keeps trying to start an argument with you? Is this the best time to just leave and go for a ride or will that just make things worst? My boyfriend keeps trying to start an argument with me and it's making him angry that I'm not falling into it with him. I think that maybe he just has something that he wants to do and starting with me is the only way that he feels he can get away to do it. What do you think?

i thought keeping my mouth shut helps avoid it but it only adds to the fire...im not the type of person who handles argument well, if im in that situation, all i can do is just cry

ok always remember a plyrics of a song "you say it best when you say nothing at all" so to avoid a wild fight just keep your mouth shut then kindly tell him that it would be much better if you talk when his head is already cool.

msbiggs24 We think alike..I too have felt like when my boyfriend keeps trying to start an argument with me maybe he wants us to get into a big argument so he can leave and go hang out with his friends or whatever he wants to do BUT you have to stop thinking like that (i did) If something is bothering him which something probably is because he keeps trying to get your attention but in all the wrong ways, then you should sit down with him and talk about it like adults..no yelling or screaming just mature talking. Im sure if you really sit down with him you can get to the root of the problem which im sure is just a minor little thing. Good luck!

I keep saying in my mind "A silent tongue keepeth a wise head" . It does work and I try to think about the positive things about him.
