Is It Ok To Date A Man With Anger Issues?
My response is, Hell, NO.
Let me explain something to you. It’s not that I’m trying to speak down on this man or say that he can’t change.
I think that people can change. He can address his anger issues and things can improve, but if you get in a relationship with him, or you remain in that relationship while he still has all those issues.
And he’s not actively working on them, then chances are he’s not going to fix them because you’re already benefiting him with the relationship.
He has less incentive to face deeper issues and correct them. Not to mention, if he has anger issues and you’re in this relationship with him, it’s very likely that somewhere along the line you’re going to trigger him.
Not intentionally, not because it’s okay, or it’s validating his behavior.

Boyfriend Gets Mad When I Don’t Do What He Wants:- Simply saying that if he hasn’t learned how to handle his anger and his emotions then any little thing you do can cause him to fly off the handle.
Even if he takes two steps forward in trying to correct the issue, he’s very likely to take five steps back.
Now, you’re in this ongoing cycle of things never really getting better and improving.
You don’t want to take that risk, you don’t want to put yourself in harm’s way.
Anger issues can initially start off as him saying a few mean things, then it’s him getting a little physical, then it can escalate to very dangerous life-threatening issues.
Don’t even take that chance. Get out of the relationship now. Make it clear that once he addresses and corrects it, yes, you can be willing to entertain a relationship with him.
But until then, stay out of that relationship, focus on you, and do what you need to do in your life.
