Girlfriend wont listen.

Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
My girlfriend and I have been together about 3-4 months and have a great relationship. The only problem I have seen is when we fight. I know all relationships have hard times and all that but we can't deal with ours. Every time I try to bring something up that needs to be resolved (jealousy for an example), she comes up with a sloppy response (something along the lines of "Well I will just do this" and then drops the subject completely. If I ask her what she means or say "Just shutting it out isn't going to work" or something of that nature, she gets pissed and usually breaks contact with me for about 8 or so hours. Eventually she comes back and is cooler but still won't talk about the problem. I am sort of confused and lost as to how to handle this. I want to work out the problems and I am willing to do whatever it takes to keep her, but I can't if she won't talk to me. Any solutions? Advice
Explain to her that communications is one of the most important parts of a good relationship.

Suggest that it would be much better if you could talk about things that bother you.

On the other hand, if this is just one topic that she is avoiding perhaps you are dwelling too much on that topic.

Good luck! George
