Something isn't right...
You're fighting more than usual. Those warm, fuzzy emotions from the beginning of the relationship have now been replaced with feelings of resentment and frustration. Arguments don't seem to end with a sense of resolution.
Have you thought about breaking up?
I know. Sometimes you feel like you're stuck between a rock and a hard place. You guys can't seem to work through your differences. But the thought of ending the relationship seems like a terrible idea. There must be some way to make things right again.
You've asked your friends.
Friends, family and other support persons can offer much needed venting and a shoulder to cry on. But maybe you and your partner are at the point where you need professional support — someone who can lend an unbiased ear and is trained in counseling skills.
It's time to reach out.
If you're looking for help online, it's a sign you're ready to reach out. Remember, there's nothing wrong with getting counseling. It means you're taking proactive measures to improve your relationship using the best resources that are available to you.
