There are two types of anger issues – and they are worlds apart.
There are feisty people who are prone to raise their voice, get strongly animated, and occasionally get carried away. They may use overly forceful language to make their point, being unnecessarily argumentative, and refusing to back down from an argument.
Many people will find this behavior deeply upsetting, and they should not contemplate a relationship with someone like this. If you can handle it, understand that this is not a true anger-management problem. Don’t rush to walk away from dating an otherwise great person.
However, sadly there is an abnormal type of anger problem: rage. People who rage pose an entirely different level of problem. People experiencing rage have lost all control. Rage is also difficult to contain and consumes everything. Rage often has no reason at all, and is thus utterly unreasonable.
Someone with a rage problem has a mental illness and needs professional help. They cannot and should not be in a relationship until they have sorted out their problem.
