My boyfriend irritates me

Published: 19 November, 2012 07:05 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, My boyfriend is getting on my nerves. We both are in our early 20s and are very much in love with each other.

However, his attitude towards me irks me a lot. He has a high opinion about himself and looks down on others. Funnily, I fell for him for this very behaviour in the beginning! Now it seems like it’s backfiring on me. He doesn’t find my taste in music or cinema up to his ‘intellectual’ mark. Though he doesn’t enforce anything on me but his verbal disagreement is more than enough for me to ruin my day. I never thought I’d say this but I wish he was different and a bit ‘normal’ like others are. Should I break up with him?

Dear Sufaira,
You created the problem so you solve it yourself too. What do you mean by saying that you want him to behave in a normal way? It was his craziness that attracted you to him. So you have to clear your muddled mind first. He accepts you the way you are, so you also should accept him the way he is. You need to sit down and have a long chat with him. Only then decide the future course of action. It looks like whatever you liked in him is now irritating to you. So first ask yourself some questions why this is happening. I am sure you will find a solution to it as well.
