Why am I rude to my boyfriend?

Answered by on -

A.

Hello. I’m a 39 year old woman who is dating a 26 year old man. I’m divorced and was single for many years before I met him. I also have a teenaged son who lives with me. My son and boyfriend get on well.

My problem is that I can’t help putting my boyfriend down with snide comments and picking arguments. Sometimes I get myself so wound up that I begin to cry. He is such a sweet man and I really don’t want to lose him. How can I change myself?
