DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend’s personality changes whenever we go on holiday. She is snappy with me and if the slightest thing doesn’t go right for her, she is negative and moody.
It makes me feel under- valued when she starts talking down to me.
My girlfriend’s always so stroppy and snappy when we go on holiday together[/caption]
I am 26 and my girlfriend is 25. We have been together for almost two years.
I have tried to talk to her about it but it only makes her worse.
The past few times we have been away she has always found something to complain about, even trivial things such as me not picking up a towel after a shower.
I am in two minds whether to give her an ultimatum or walk altogether as I am so unhappy, but I know that she won’t cope well if we break up.
