I can't imagine that watching your ex get married in such a big manner is an easy thing. That's exactly what Scarlett Johansson had to deal with at the end of 2013 when ex-husband Ryan Reynolds had a large-scale wedding with Blake Lively. Now, Scarlett's reflecting on her past, talking Internet oversharing, and dishing on her dating pet peeves with Marie Claire.
"I don't like jealous behavior," Johansson told the magazine. "I don't mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it's really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity."
MAN I am with you there, ScarJo. When things in a relationship get passive aggressive, you either need to tackle the REAL problem or get the hell out of there.
Passive aggressive behavior doesn't make anyone feel good, period. The person who is being passive aggressive is doing so because their partner has done something to upset them, and then in turn -- the partner is feeling like crap as well. Essentially it's a lose-lose situation.
The reality? Being passive aggressive gets you nowhere. Instead of holding a grudge toward your partner, it's easier to take the time to tell them WHAT made you upset, then move forward. Instead of prolonging the conflict, handle it. I know, I know -- sometimes easier said than done. But tackling issues head on in the long run will make both lovers feel better a WHOLE lot faster.
Do you loathe passive aggressive behavior just as much as I do?
