Faultfinders and Flakes

September 9, 2004

Is your personality poisoning your relationship? Dr. Phil has advice for faultfinders, flakes and whiners whose personalities are wearing down their loved ones.

Faultfinder
"Living with a negative person sucks the life right out of you," says Melissa who is tired of her husband Dwayne's finger-pointing, faultfinding and constant criticism.


Is she ready to take the kids and call it quits?  

 


Whiner
Cat constantly whines about everything, especially the small stuff. Her boyfriend Daniel has had enough of it.


"She's driving me insane," Daniel admits. 

 


Flake
Debbie's husband, Andrew, doesn't remember plans he has made and often sleeps through engagements. Debbie is concerned for their relationship and how Andrew's flaking is affecting their children. 

  

"I'm at my wit's end," Debbie says.
