I have been dating the same guy for 2 1/2 years off and on since October. That's when we discovered a problem. He had a very bad temper. It seemed he would get extremely angry about little things. He would get so angry that he would break things and punch holes in his walls when I was standing there crying. In one instance, he even threatened to kill himself. This scares me and I don't know how to handle this. I find that I am afraid of telling him almost anything that might slightly anger him. He doesn't exhibit this behavior very often. This only happens about once or twice every 3 months. In every day circumstances he is very kind and understanding, it just seems that sometimes he blows up. In my opinion, I think he holds in his emotions and they eventually blow up. I have told him I think he needs help and just recently, after one big anger blow up, he agreed and is willingly pursuing it. We are planning to discuss this all with his parents and seek their advice on what actions we should take. I really love him and I care about his health and I want to help him as much as possible. What actions should we take to help this anger problem (if that's what it really is)? Should we see a psychologist? I'm stuck!
