I can totally relate, but I couldn’t really tell you what I do to deal with it! haha I’m not quite sure what I do to deal with it. Normally I give it right back to him and he gets the point then appologizes, otherwise I normally tell him to leave ME alone until he gets straightened out and wants to be nice. lol

When my Fiance starts acting like he is on a man period I tend to try to help him sort out what’s wrong first. If he starts getting worse I tell him that I’m backing off for awhile so that he can sort out his own problems. When he’s calmed down a bit he’s able to sort things out or he comes to me for help. 

If he has something going on for a long length of time I usually let him know how it is negatively affecting us and my sanity. Then I try to find things to keep me occupied and out of each other’s way for a little while. Sometimes when my Fiance gets upset with work he just needs a little space.

When Fiance gets grumpy and starts asking for chocolate/dessert more I know he’s having his Meriod (man period). 

I hate when he’s on his meriod, he’s such a grumpy old man! lol

I give him chocolate and tell him to knock it off. If I can’t act that way every time I have my period, there’s no way in hell he can!

OMG so frustrating. Mr. GrumpyPants mopes and mopes. When my Fiance gets that way I just leave him alone until he is ready to come back out of his cave. I stay near enough so he knows I’m there when he wants to come out. I also happen to play music he likes and happen to have something yummy baking to lure him out and give him a hug. 😉

My Fiance likes when I notice that something’s wrong, but usualyl denies it and won’t talk about it right away anyway. Then I just let him be and he comes to me when he’s ready to talk. Usually doesn’t take to long.

In the mean time, he loves riding his motorcycle so I tell him to go do that to clear his mind. And sometimes I bake something, or do a lot of cleaning so he’s in a slightly better mood.

this happens with us sometimes so I ignore him, spend lots of time going out and seeing my friends/family, and usually a couple days sitting at home playing on the x-box makes him feel better!  but the worst he ever was, for the longest time (about three weeks) was last year, I said to him, “I don’t like being around you any more, you’re being a total dick. Why don’t you fuck off somewhere until you become you again” and that actually helped! I told him to go over to see his friends, get drunk with them until he felt better and then come home and he started laughing and in the end it was fine.  just remember that in the future you’ll have full license to be as moody as you want now!!

Haha! I’ve actually told him that he’s on his “man period” before..while he was mad! He didn’t appreciate it very much. He gets over things pretty quick so I have no advice for you at all! Maybe just do whatever helps him get over whatever is bothering him quicker?

lol! I can soo relate. It depends on how bad he is. If its only mild (pouting really quiet) I will ask him if hes ok, and either A tells me whats up or B says nothing. I respond with Ok well if you want to talk Im here and start doing my own thing. If its bad (snapping, short, and compleatly disregarding everything I say…what I call minor dick mode). I will tell him to piss off and go do something until he can talk to me the way a man should talk to a woman and can tell me what the heck is wrong with him. If its really, really bad (really taking his mood out on me and starting arguments and really starting to hurt my feelings..major dick mode)…he has his “time out” time on the patio. Where I tell him to go outside and chill out and come in when he is better and not until then. And I leave him alone and do my own thing in the mean time.

HAHA, I read the title and was like, “Is there supposed to be a comma in there?” And then I read the post and lol’d. DH’s Man Periods don’t last very long, but I just avoid saying anything that will make his inner princess-diva come out. 

Thank god he only has one every six months or so.

Mine doesn’t really have them, but when he gets in a funk man does he suck. Last night (and I’d be pretty pissed too if this were me) his car got hit and screwed it all up. And now he’s just acting crappy. I offered him breakfast and he said no, I have no way to carry it, since I have to ride my bike to work.

The last time Fiance did this I threw a tampon at him and told him to either use the product or stop acting like he was on his period.

 

It defused the cranky beast and made him laugh.
