Sings Of A Stormy Relationship And What To Do About It

It’s normal for a couple to argue, but what’s not normal is when a couple’s arguments are fluctuating and have reached a point where it has become extreme. That’s a giant red flag already. The strange thing is, most couples don’t really know that they’re in a stormy relationship until it’s too late, or until damage has already been done.

Are You In A Stormy Relationship? What Should You Do?

We’ve already mentioned that, commonly, the first sign is when the couple’s arguments seem to escalate and become more frequent. Here are a few more signs that tell you you’re in a stormy relationship:

Repeated Fights

Do you fight about the same things over and over again? What’s sad about stormy relationships is that fighting has become a norm. The couple has fought so much that they feel like it’s already become a regular factor in the relationship. It shouldn’t be, of course.

What to do: Talk after you argue so you can arrive at a resolution and have closure.


People in a stormy relationship are usually overly dependent on each other. This is most probably one of the main reasons for the constant friction in the relationship. One person, or even both, feel that the relationship is necessary for their happiness. Without the other, the overly dependent person feels depressed and abandoned.

What to do: Identify who the overly dependent person is. Once you do, you have to work through the dependency together. If it’s still not working, you might need the help of a professional.

Manipulation In The Relationship

Another sign that a relationship is stormy is when one person uses manipulation to get what he or she wants. Some manipulative behaviours include guilt tripping, showing contempt, and getting defensive.

What to do: It’s hard to spot manipulation in a relationship, and when you do, the person usually is unaware that he or she is doing it. This is when a professional needs to step in.

Your Emotions Dictate Your Relationship’s Health

When you’re happy, you feel like your relationship’s perfect, even when it is not really the case. Couples in stormy relationships often set their standards too low. A small glimpse of hope or peace make them happy, but they’re not really doing anything to address the cause of their problem. When a fight takes place, and it eventually will after a short period of peace, the process comes full circle.

What to do: Take a step back to see what the real status of your relationship is. Be objective and try to see your relationship from a third person’s perspective.

No one wants to be in a stormy relationship so if you identify all of these signs in your current one, it’s time to have a heart to heart talk with your partner. Whatever the both of you decide, you need to think about what’s best. You can either go your separate ways or speak to a professional to salvage what’s left of the relationship.

Is It Hard To Date A Russian Woman? This Video Explains It

Do you know what it’s like to date a Russian woman? If you’re reading this now, it’s likely that you don’t. Well, we’ve written so many blog posts about what it’s like to have a Russian wife or girlfriend, but we haven’t really translated these posts into a video. Today, with the help of a video we found on Dating Beyond Borders’ YouTube channel, here’s how it is to date a Russian woman:

What You Can Expect When You Date A Russian Woman

All of the points that you will read below are based off the video, but we’re adding in a few tips of our own too:

She Takes Care Of Her Appearance

Everyone probably already knows that Russian women like to take care of themselves. We’ve also been saying this ever since. If you want to date a Russian woman, make sure that you take care of your appearance too. Don’t show up on your date underdressed.

Tip: Google “stylish outfits for a date men” and you’ll see examples of outfits that you can wear.

She Rejects Guys Who Don’t Have A Plan

If you’re the type of guy who doesn’t make reservations because you “play it by ear”, “go with the flow”, or “roll with the punches”, you can bet that it’s not going to work out. Russian women don’t like men who are indecisive.

Like what the video suggested, be assertive because Russian women appreciate a man who can take control.

Tip: Tell her exactly what you’re going to do on your date – what you’ll eat, what you’ll drink, where you’ll go and so on. You don’t have to be very detailed. She just needs to know that you’re confident about the date you’ve planned.

Forget About It If You’re Not A Gentleman

Russian women are used to being treated like ladies. If you’re not going to open doors for her, you’re not going to stand a chance. You’ll quickly see that her face will turn sour when you cannot take a hint about what you need to do, like in the video.

She Can Seem Cold

Don’t be deceived by her tough exterior. She may be having a great time, but may not be showing it in the way you would expect her to do so. While you’re on your date, do your best to break the ice so she can loosen up and feel more at ease to show her true feelings.

Once you do, she’ll be interested in everything that you’re interested in. She’ll also be more comfortable to show you her emotional side.

Tip: Stick to jokes that she’s familiar with. If you don’t know any Russian jokes, look for Russian comedians on YouTube and watch their videos.

She’s Not Going To Let You Go Hungry

Date a Russian woman, and you’ll see how caring she is when she’s warmed up to you. She’ll fix you a snack, get you a beer and make you feel like your king of the house.

At first, a Russian woman will seem challenging to date, but if you succeed in winning her heart over, you may find that Russian women make the best wives or girlfriends. We have more dating tips on our blog so check those out.
