    I'm under extreme pressure at the moment, there are a lot of stressful things going on in my life, and yesterday I reached breaking point, after working a full day's work whilst juggling some stuff I'm dealing with, and then receiving a letter asking me to provide documentation I don't have and can't possibly get before proceeding with an application.

    My boyfriend (4 mnths) came around, but he came 15 minutes early and I was just getting out the shower. I had been crying on and off all day, and for some reason, him coming early just set me off.

    For about 10 minutes after he arrived I was really really difficult and pissy with him, before breaking down and apologizing for being a *****. He tried to help me solve some of the admin problems I was having, and then told me not to worry about it, and that he knew something was up as soon as he came in.

    I just hope he doesn't think I'm a crazy...and this morning on reflection, I feel really bad about how I reacted and took things out on him. Is this...''normal''?

    You're a girl, so yes it's normal.

    Girl's frequently tend to be irrational and emotional, especially during that time of the month.

    Hey, i wouldnt worry too much, im sure he understands that you felt under pressure and as you said he helped you try to resolve some of your amin problems. I would say he doesnt think your crazy, he sounds an understanding guy.
    im sure it will all be smiles next time you see him :-)

    I don't see the issue here. You say you were pissy with him for 10 minutes, then apologised, and you both worked together to sort it out. Problem solved, surely?

    Wouldn't worry about it OP. Happens to everyone, and you've been with him a few months so a small-scale bout of frustration/upset isn't a huge deal. If you do something along those lines on a first date, that might convey a bad impression, but by this time he'll know you were just stressed. Sounds like he was nice and helpful about it, so that's a good sign. You might apologise again, briefly, and thank him for helping you out.

    How to make a girl more irrational and emotional: hint that she's pissed off because she's on her period. Or imply that women get emotional/upset/angry more easily then men.

    I thought I'd get a bit of domestic violence when I clicked on this thread.

    Yeah honestly it's fine. My boyfriend is like my best friend so I tend to take a lot of stuff out on him and I feel so so bad afterwards but he understands that I get a bit stressy . Just apologise and do something nice to make up for it

    I'm not being sexist here at all. Women can be irrational in the way you described; if it happens rarely then it's not a problem and he should be OK with it.

    If it happens a lot, it could put a strain on the relationship.

    I'm sure he doesn't really give a crap and he's not going to be seriously offended by it so chill.
