    I'm 10 hours in ...

    Stupid argument about nothing and my GF as usual won't speak to me .

    I always break first . I'm holding out just to see if I can win .

    We don't argue very often ....

    She's very good at the silent treatment .

    We've watched TV , ran errands, dealt with the kiddos and so on without saying a word to each other ....

    I think I'm gonna lose this one ,I won't go to bed without some kind words...

    Women ....not as weak as portrayed

    That game sounds counterproductive.

    She is a strong woman ...that is one of the reasons I love her...

    This is meant as a joke....we will survive this ...she knows this drive me crazy
  6. When I give mine the silent treatment, I usually have some one tell her-otherwise she won't notice

    Tat2dHeart Only two strings away from an attitude problem.

    I NEVER use the silent treatment. All the guys I've known thought that silence was awesome so if I really wanted to punish them, I just kept on talking. About anything. Like...shoes, hair, makeup, my friends, my friends' friends, recipes.....what color to paint the ceiling. Then, when I was tired of punishing them........

    .....um nevermind. It's not polite to tease you all with how that went. ;)

    You must be young, or inexperienced.

    The longer the game goes on, the more you win.

    I tried that early on in my marriage. Experience proved to me I was better off to swallow my pride and seek a resolution.
