Since breaking up with my girlfriend, I am evaluating what I did right and what I did wrong, so I can be better in the future. My general feeling is that I did things right in the beginning of the relationship; flirting, not being nervous, showing her an exciting time, not being needy, pushing the physical boundaries, ect... But I also feel like there were times when she did things that annoyed or angered me, but I didn't want to express it because I was afraid of ruining our time together or appearing too emotional and weak. I was afraid of conflict basically. I think I became too nice and she lost respect for me because I didn't really stand up for myself like I should. Thankfully I had to balls to be the one to end the relationship before it dragged on even more. I know that you guys have made mistakes like this in the past, so I'm asking that you post examples of them, what you did to fix them, and the results you saw when you changed your behavior.
