You'll never meet a man who has changed his mind and decided to change his behavior due to the fact that his beloved constantly yells at him. The only thing he can decide to do is to part with such a woman. Kharkiv girls know this and therefore wisely choose reasons for claims. They feel, when it is necessary to show discontent, and when it is better to stand and keep silent. Nevertheless, if a man wanders around the night, not wishing at least to warn her, even an ideal girl has every right to throw a scandal. But endless quibbles do not correspond in any way to the image of the most desired and beloved Kharkiv woman.
