When a two-year-old pouts, it’s cute. When a grown woman pouts, it’s not.
Merriam Webster’s second entry for “pout” is: “to refuse to talk to people because you are angry or annoyed about something“
Yes, this is a lot like Monday’s The Horrible Power of Being Offended or Wounded, but it’s more of an occasional thing rather than a way of life. It’s choosing to not engage, which is a bad plan in a relationship.
That said, needing time to process or to calm down before you deal with something is fine. Just watch your lower lip, and your attitude.
~ Paul – I’m XY and I was 12 before I managed a physical pout.
