    Hi, Beachgirl. Even normal people can turn on a dime. Your key to surviving in this relationship is to cultivate the skills to spot his mood changes before he does. Sort of like the barometer dropping, even though there are no clouds in the sky. There may be a chance to head him off with a gentle or stern warning before all hell breaks loose. Or you may need to give him a wide berth and leave the room.

     

    Keep in mind, you can't reason with a person when they're irrational. If his bad mood strikes without you seeing it coming, you need to disengage at once. That way, you will have less chance of getting hurt.

     

    Later on, you can reason with him. But if he is not open to reasoned conversation, then you're in for a very rough relationship.
