Just wondering if I can gather your opinions on a little issue I have currently. In recent months, my GF has exhibited the habit of lashing out at me when we’ve argued. The first time she ever did this was around 5 months ago, and since then she’s done it 4 more times. The last 2 were in the proximity of just one week. Now I’m a 6 ft well built guy, whilst she’s only a slim 5ft 1 girl (weighing no more than 110 pounds); thus giving me very little reason to react badly to her physical outbursts.
But because of me always turning the other cheek, I think she’s become comfortable in knowing she can hit me, and not expect anything to come back at her (hence the 2 slaps in one week). Now I must stress, the actual blows she lands on me (slaps on the face) don’t hurt me at all; therefore doing very little to invoke a physical reaction of my own. She also is not a bad person; I know she cares a lot for me, always going out of her way to be the best possible partner she can be. However it’s just these minor eruptions, which are giving me cause for concern.
The question I’d like to ask you all (males and females), is whether it would be correct for me to return a smack of my own, of equal measures? Please everyone, I’d very much like to hear all of your opinions. The more honest you are the better!
