According to Wikipedia, passive-aggressive behavior is a behavior that expresses aggression in an indirect, passive way. This includes procrastination, hostile jokes (though in general jokes are recognized as a method of expressing veiled hostility), stubbornness, resentment, sullenness. or deliberate/repeated failure to accomplish requested tasks for which one is (often explicitly) responsible.

 

A truly passive-aggressive person suffers from a personality disorder that is marked by some very specific behaviors – or lack of behaviors. Many people have varying levels of a tendency toward this disorder, and many of those do not even realize that the way they behave at times can cause trouble with their relationships. Others are well aware of the way their mentality works, and they use it to their perceived advantage – often as a weapon against the very people they are involved in various areas of their lives.

 

More often than not, the people who have this disorder are very personable and charismatic, especially at the beginning of a relationship. You may have had fun together, felt like you knew each other instantly, and become close very quickly. This is just one reason why it can be so frustrating to deal with a person like this once things turn sour.

This is a short list of some of the ways passive aggressiveness can wreak havoc in relationships with men. Some of these situations may even sound familiar to you.

 

• They Show A Lack of Responsibility and Make Excuses For Just About Everything – People who incline to be passively aggressive very often make excuses for everything. They often refuse to take responsibility for their own actions, and they have a tendency to blame things on other people –  that they are responsible for. They often blame their wives or girlfriends for things these women have nothing to do with.

 

• They’ve Learned To Have An Attitude Of Helplessness And Victimhood – Passive aggressive men often play the “poor me” or victim role. This goes hand in hand with a lack of personal accountability. Sometimes they create scenarios where they’re victimized just to get the special attention and favors that they need to accomplish their goals.

 

• They Have A Tendency To Be Obstructionism And Create Interference Much Of The Time – If you have ever noticed that your significant other tends to seem to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or has a tendency to interfere in things he has no business interfering in, then it’s likely he has some tendency toward a passive-aggressive nature. Although passive-aggressive men are capable of loving, they very often have difficulty trusting the judgment of others, and they have trouble with intimacy, which can be very annoying to deal with.

 

• They Intentionally Cause Chaos – If things seem to be going a bit more smoothly than normal,  be prepared for the situation to change. It can happen as something as minor as a dropped bag of groceries, followed by him blaming you and intentionally picking a fight – or it can be something major.

A mental health practitioner can help a person with a behavior of passive aggression to realize that they are causing damage within their relationships, and over time, can help that person to live a more normal life. If your loved one is willing to accept help then seek the assistance he needs. If not, reevaluate your relationship. You may be happier elsewhere.
