Especially when she's on her period or getting close to it are you used to a woman controlling her emotions because she recognizes when its that time or are you used to the bitchy can't control herself type? Which would you prefer and why?

Well, my girlfriend is already a very emotional person as such, which has a lot do with her culture. She is from South Korea and Koreans are known to have a very fiery temperament (they're sometimes called "the Italians of Asia"). On top of that, she's somebody who lets her emotions out freely when she's on her period. She says that since I'm her boyfriend and since we're so intimate, she shouldn't have to make the effort to control herself because that's even more exhausting than just letting out the emotions. So together with her already fiery temperament, this can be quite exhausting for me too, sometimes ;-). In the beginning of our relationship, it sometimes led to some big and very unnecessary fights. After two years or so, I couldn't really take it anymore and I also knew her well enough to try a new strategy. Now, I always ask her when her period starts and she also doesn't mind talking about it. When I know she's on her period (especially on the first 1-2 days), I deliberately pull back a lot. I'm usually a very sweet and caring and very talkative person but during her period, I make myself become very reserved and quiet. I would mostly just keep for myself, sit on the computer, read or something like that. My girlfriend sometimes doesn't like that because she also feels very clingy and wants a lot of love but I know it's best to stay hard and reject her because if I don't and we start engaging more, we usually sooner or later end up in an unnecessary fight due to her period-temper. It's not always easy to be like this but throughout the years it has proved to be a pretty successful way of dealing with this. Obviously, I would like it better if my girlfriend would control her emotions a little more but I'm not mad at her for it. I also have my cranky moments once in a while and I know how hard it can be to not show it.0
