The fact that you allow her to get away with flipping out on you says a lot about the relationship. You should never let a girl get away with flipping out on you for any reason. That’s when you walk out of there. You reassuring her does two bad things 1) it rewards her terrible behavior and 2) it makes it more likely she’ll pull bullshit and see someone else because she knows she has you under her thumb. Letting her get away with tantrums is no good for anybody. She feels like an idiot afterward. You feel stupid. Both parties feel awful. You need to teach her how to treat you better and the only way to do that is by taking away the prize when she misbehaves.
