There are some questions about men that only a guy can answer. We asked the dudes at guyspeak. Q: My boyfriend is the guy that taught Negative Ned all he knows. He is so negative, and the smallest thing going wrong will ruin the next week of his life, no matter my efforts to improve his day. It really takes a toll on our relationship—I am at the receiving end, every day. What do I do?

For me, this was never an easy thing. Having unrealistic expectations of a partner almost always ensured that they would get scared off, or fail to meet them in a way that would catastrophically disappoint me. And the repeated rejection that would come from putting someone unjustly onto a pedestal eventually gave me the jaded and inaccurate perception that most men don’t want to date. I can tell now that’s not the case, but if you’d asked me a few months ago, I would have sworn that was the truth.
To find out which views of relationships can be very unhealthy for you and your partner, I enlisted the help of relationship psychologists and authors of Stitched Up: A Primer For Healing After Heartbreak Aimee Hartstein , and Monica Parikh.
When You’re Dating (or Married to) a Pessimist…
Background and study aims Over the past two decades, significant changes have occurred in how men who have sex with men MSM find partners, moving from the traditional approach in person at gay bars to the Internet and now to smartphone dating applications apps.

The present study investigated the combined effect of trait anger and negative attitudes towards women i. A total of college-aged men who reported that they were either currently involved in a romantic relationship or had been involved in at least one romantic relationship during the past 12 months were recruited. Correlational analyses indicated that trait anger, hostility towards women, and calloused sexual beliefs were positively associated with frequency of physical assault.
Further, hierarchical regression analyses indicated that both hostility towards women and calloused sexual beliefs moderated the relationship between trait anger and frequency of physical assault, such that in men who possess more negative attitudes towards women, higher levels of trait anger lead to increased physical assault. Results provide initial support for the role of trait anger in dating violence and suggest the existence of a subgroup among premaritally violent males who possess negative attitudes toward women and also possess a strong tendency to experience intense levels of anger.
