We all do not like conflicts with loved ones, especially if conflicts break out in public. Meanwhile, a quarrel may arise on the street, in a shop, at a party or at a restaurant, and the question is how to prevent it from growing. Here are 5 simple rules to help you do this.
Click on the "stop"
If you feel that a quarrel breaks out, stop, take a couple of slow breaths and arrange with your partner to return to the problem in a more intimate setting.
Do not raise the tone
No matter how annoying your companion is, try not to raise your voice to it. Speak calmly, letting him know that you are not going to discuss the conflict in public.
Tell me that you are uncomfortable to discuss the issue in a public place.
It seems that this is obvious, but an angry man may simply not pay attention to the fact that you have become a spectacle to the public. Try to convey to him that you are embarrassed to argue here and now.
Try to invite your man to discuss the issue in private
So you show that you are not avoiding the question and it is also important for you to solve the problem, but you cannot do it while you are in public. Offer the man another time or place to discuss the problem.
If nothing stops your man - leave
Let him know that you are going to quit if he does not stop arguing in public. Do not start with this, but use it as a last try. If your man continues to argue and does not respect your request to deal with the problem in private, then leave. This will very quickly give the man to understand that all your previous efforts to smooth out the conflict were not just like that.
