What to do in this situation?
So here's the details:
Me and my girlfriend have been together for about 3 years. We've been living together for the past year and a month or so, although to save money, we also have one of her best friends living with us to split the cost of the rental.
Over the past few months, it seems like me and my gf have been bickering over things more and more. My personal way to deal with these issues is to forgive and forget. I personally feel that instead of arguing over little things, we should just forget it and move on with our lives. I hate arguing, As I feel it distances us. Although ignoring the issues don't seem to be working out either. Lately, whenever she gets mad at me for whatever reason, she'll give me the silent treatment, or ignore me, sometimes for days on end. It drives me up the wall. And even when she does need to talk to me about something, she's so monotone and sometimes rude even. For example, this morning I was woken up with, not a kiss, not a 'good morning', but a 'you need to move your car'. (We have a narrow driveway). And she said not a word after that as she went to work.
And since her best friend also lives with us, it's like she has someone to constantly fall back on when we're arguing, while I'm stuck to take it all on on my own.
What has been upsetting me even more, is that some of my friends have been picking up on this behavior. Some of my friends have said that that don't know how I deal with her bitchyness , some friends have made a point of saying I shouldn't bring her to social events, some friends have even said I shouldn't be with her anymore. I do love her, and while I do really want things to work out, sometimes it just seems like it's not going to.
This is the first relationship that I've been in that has lasted so long, and she's the first girl I've lived with. I desperately want to fix things before it completely falls apart. I just don't know how to deal with this anymore.
Thanks in advance
