Ask Dr. Rhodes

I always enjoy bantering and sparring with people. When things get slow, I stir the pot by making some challenging remark. My boyfriend gets nervous and tells me he doesn’t like it when I ‘go over the top.’ Is he right?


Make sure to stay tuned in to your behavior. It’s okay to be a little provocative as long as it’s not mean-spirited or deliberately trying make someone uncomfortable. As long as you aren’t being rude or inappropriate, you’re fine. At least no one will get bored when you’re around!
