AIBU to think that sulky men are a massive turn off, do is in the huff, hasn't even said hello to me since he came home at 6:30pm when he's supposed to finish work at 4:30pm, I feel like throwing something hard at his head.

What do you think?

I think that sulking is childish, manipulative bullshit and has no place in an adult relationship.

Sulking, regardless of age, sex & reason is unattractive full stop

I can't stand sulkers, very childish.

Is sulking a deal breaker?

I did one better I went to my bed to get away from him, was nice to the DS and dd and left him to it, silent is better for dc than shouting

My dad was Sulky McSulkface. To this day I can't be arsed with sulky people.

My 3 year old nephew acts more mature than some sulky grumpy men I've came across, and that is said without exaggeration.

I can't put up with sulky for long. When it happens too often it kills the attraction for me stone dead, then thats that.

It's awful. DP is mostly great but if we row (and DD is 7 months; we have had the usual sleep deprived rows over the last few months!), he has a fine line in passive aggression. eg words are had, then after a period if silence, I say I am off to waitrose, what does he want for dinner?

Nothing, of course...

Why do some men ( and I presume women) do this?! It's like going out with a hormonal hungry teenager for a couple of hours..

Period OF silence. I might sulk with my stupid iPhone for always correcting me incorrectly now.

My DH used to be a terrible sulker, he has got a lot better after our DD started to copy his behaviour and directing it at him quite a few times, I pointed out to him that it was his own fault as she watched him do the same and remind him when he was sulking that he doesn't want his DD to behave like this!! Also I find it upsetting because she can tell he's being off and gets upset that were "not friends" he doesn't do it often now, can go atleast 3 months without a sulk and they only last a few hours now so maybe now it's more having some space. I think it's manipulative, off putting, childish and so infuriating.

I absolutely cannot stand it, from men or women. I just find it so immature. If there is problem lets sort it out, if not, why are you acting like there is? Urgh.

DH used to be, I started to call him on it and tell him he was a fucking sook and he eventually grew out of it. Took a couple of years but he got there.

TinklyLittleLaugh Tue 19-Apr-16 10:17:26

Yep mine used to sulk, I hate sulking. I have always called him on it and he grew out of it pretty quick when he realised I wouldn't be indulging it.

He still does a bit of a tight lipped thing when he's pissed off. He's just not very good at saying, "I'm bloody pissed off Tink, let's sort this out".

I find teens very useful at pointing out when DH is being a prat; he seems to accept his unreasonableness more if it is remarked on by them.
