Dear Poll: Have You Ever Fought With Your Significant Other in Public?

Yesterday I gave you the dos and don'ts of fighting and one of my suggestions was to fight in private. Not only is it important for the quarreling couple to be disturbance free, but fighting in public is sure to make everyone in the vicinity feel incredibly uncomfortable. Now I know that it's easy to let our emotions get the best of us, but tell me, have you ever gotten into a knockdown, drag-out fight with your significant other in a public place?

I'd rather not make a scene thanks.

No, never...I can't think of a time in any relationship that I've had where this has happened. I am so not the kind of person who likes to make a scene--I will walk away.

All the time with my ex. he would never do it in private. He would only skulk and pout. But if we were at school or in town he would chuck complete fruities and try and make it look like I was the insane one. Thank god my partner doesn't do this. Actually, thank god we dont fight!

In college, i was spending the weekend with a good friend and her man. They were making snide remarks to one another that seemed to be escalating...Eventually, out to dinner that night, he called her a "F*cking bore" She came back with.."You're a Boring F*ck"!!! I wanted to crawl under the table.. She claimed she was joking..Just a clever play on words.. But he couldnt(understandably) get beyond that..I think it was the fact that, there was an audience that heard her say this!!! That was the end of that relationship!

yes, he threw a plate at me and then said he was joking. It cut open my head, and then i punched him, he got knocked out! We split three years ago.

We've had public disagreements but there was no yelling involved.

unfortunately i did, it wasn't as much a fight as a slight disagreement with his thoughts about something but it was at his family's house and i did the wrong thing by criticizing him in front of everyone..and he was really upset about it later on. but i guess from your experiences...

I have gotten into little tifs with boyfriends in public, but never made a scene. This past weekend though we were out and saw this huge blow up fight between a couple. She was yelling and screaming at him to leave her alone and to never call her again and she even threw her phone at him. lol. I felt really bad for the poor guy, because he had no idea what to do with his drunk ass girlfriend.

Once at dinner, my best friend's loser boyfriend (whom I hate) literally threw an honest to God temper tantrum because she didn't want him to order oysters as an appetizer because he was the only one who liked them (and, oh yeah, she was paying and he was already planning on having a very expensive steak as his entree), and she wanted to pick something we could all share. He started swearing and pouting, and eventually walked out of the restaurant to smoke a cigarette because he was "tired of never getting what he wanted." OH MY GOD. I was so horrified that I think I'd rather die than fight in public.

Yeah, on his college campus. I still feel bad about it; but, damn, he pissed me off that day.

I refuse to do this. I will be absolutely silent if necessary. I had a childish ex, as well, who tried everything to push my buttons. One time while we were at a bar in the middle of winter he completely hit on one of my friends in front of me (she was mortified and not at all interested), so I ditched him - he had to walk home in the snow.

I love going to Disney because you are at the "happiest place on earth" yet you walk by a family and see the parents fighting because they get so stressed out trying to make the family vacation perfect! We've all been there!

I've blown up at him over the phone while with friends and their friends whom I didn't know well. I'm sure that made a good impression.

Yes, once, many years ago before we were married. I learned my lesson, and I never argued with him in public again. I save it until we get home. :)

well we were out with some friends and we had a tiny squabble in the car and we just were quiet the whole evening. well near the end of the night he decided to unleash at me. he thought he was "whispering" but at least two of our friends on the table could hear the mean things he was saying. i was MORTIFIED, theres nothing less classy than fighting in public. i kept telling him to keep quiet til we got home but he wouldnt so i just left the table and went to the lady's room. one of our older friends followed me in and i was crying. it was awful and embarrassing. i'm still embarrassed by the impression we must have made to others. its' so not like us. tsk tsk hubby.

I almost did but I realized how many people were around us and decided to save ourselves the embarrassment and fight it out when we got home. By the time we got home, we were both cooled off.

Oh man, it was our first fight and we werent married yet, and i ended up getting soaked in gatoraid at the store i was working at from him getting up and walked out from the deli table and splling it on me, then i ran after him to call him a so and so. and ran smack into his last girlfriend.. who stopped and stood by smiling while we continued the fight!!! it was HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. and the whole thing was my fault for being a negative nancy! i wanted to choke her for being so happy about us arguing..! ugh!.

Yup, I have. My ex was absolutly impossible to deal with. Worse then dealing with a child. He seemed to always pick fights with me while we were out. I haven't thought about that in a while. God, that was annoying. I'm so glad I'm dating a grown up now.
