When arguing with your significant other, it's easy for things to get out of control and for you to say something hurtful. But no matter how high emotions run, guys, there is one thing that you must avoid saying at all costs. I came upon the sage adivce via a relationship blogger for Yahoo Shine , and now I'll pass this knowledge onto you.

Relationship experts advise men to never, EVER tell a woman to "calm down" during a disagreement. This includes any variation – such as "relax," "chill," "take it easy," or "settle down." Any one of those phrases will be interpreted as you telling her that she’s overreacting or behaving irrationally, which women find condescending and disrespectful.  And that can add fuel to the fire of an already intense situation.
