But why do we do so? Is it because we try to take a loved one for granted? Or do we think that a person who is in love with us will forever stick to us irrespective of our attitudes and tantrums?
Well, let us explore this topic a bit....

To Demand More Attention

When a loved one isn't giving enough attention to feel good, then some people try to show attitude to give signals that one isn't too available. They think that this trick might work but at the end of the day, someone giving you attention depends upon lots of other factors. Showing attitude might not work.

We Take The Loved Ones For Granted

Most of us treat others with care but when it comes to loved ones, we tend to take them for granted. In fact, it should be the reverse. We need to show more affection to loved ones and treat others in the circle normally.

To Show Frustration

When your loved one has hurt you in the past, you tend to wait for an opportunity to show your frustration. And when he or she approaches you, you will start showing attitude to take revenge. In fact, that is immature. It would complicate things but doesn't solve the issue.

To Feel More Important

Feeling important in a relationship could be a basic need for some and a narcissistic need for some. In fact, using relationships for egotistical pleasure is the most foolish thing to do in life because your loved ones may sooner or later walk out if you keep showing attitude.

To Prove That One Is Superior

Superiority complex is as dangerous as inferiority complex. Showing attitude to show superiority over the other may make the other person feel insulted and this will burn all bridges later.

Due To Ignorance

When we are young, we tend to be immature. In such phase, we tend to show attitude due to ignorance.

To Point Out The Priorities

Some people carry an air of importance to show that you are not in their priority list. If it happens to you, just leave. If your loved one never behaves that you are his or her priority, it is meaningless to be in the relationship. Simply move on to find someone who treats you like their first priority.
