my boyfriend of over a year definately has an anger problem. little stuff makes him mad, he yells alot and gets irritated easily etc etc etc. he has gotten a little better from when we first started dating but not enough for me to be satisfied. he says he just 'cannot control it', i disagree!! what should i do for him or suggest for him to do? he has ADHD, could this be causing some of it?
I'm in the same situation as you and honestly I don't know what to do about it. My bf and I have been together for almost 3 years and I'm not one to just throw away 3 years of my life on a relationship I worked so hard for.
He definitely has the same issues though, gets angry over very little things (in fact he hasn't talked to me in the past few days because he's angry over a stupid incident from last weekend).
I'm not the only one who notices this either, his family complains about it also, but no one can make him do anything about it since he's old enough (22)to take care of himself. He's just so immature.

You did mention ADHD and though that has its own issues, I don't think it should contribute significantly to his anger.
I wish I could suggest something to you, but I'm looking for answers myself. I wish you the best of luck with whatever (if anything) you decide to do to help him.

time to find a new boyfriend....one who doesn't have an anger problem.
if he can't control it, he needs to get some help, and you need to get out of his immediate vicinity.......it's only a matter of time that you get a black eye or worse......verbal abuse frequently turns into physical abuse....
you don't need it.

he says he cannot control it......who can say what he will do next
Oh I wanted to add that I have ADHD. I overreact to situations easily and am on medication for the ADHD which has helped. I do have a temper and I used to have anxiety really bad as well but I am working on it. I think my boyfriend might have it as well. I brought home alot of literature for him to look through and discuss with his dr. on Monday. But I am not the Dr. so I don't know maybe it's something else.

Anyhow I just wanted to say that the ADHD does make you overreact to situations and to misinterprit meanings of what people are saying and how they are acting. It makes you impulsive, hyperactive, easily bored, take risks, etc... Read up on it online. Is your boyfriend taking anything for his ADHD?
