"Like, I know I can come across a little strong and I'm not trying to be mean or anything like that. It's something I'm working on, for sure, but I mean, it's a flaw of mine and I know that."
Erik's Married at First Sight co-star Jacob Harder also appeared on Unfiltered and chimed in, "I think context is everything, and I think what you were intending to say, there wasn't any foul sort of intention there."
"That's always something you have to gauge, I think, in person," Jacob added.
"Someone who doesn't know his wife super well and doesn't know her friends, I think he's saying, 'Let's make sure that we're guarding our relationship,'" Viviana said.
"He says it in a way though that is so, like, commanding!"
Viviana then addressed Erik and said, "It sounds like you know what you don't want and you want to give her that feedback; you want to give her the keys to make sure that you're happy. But she doesn't know that that's where it's coming from."
"Yeah," Erik agreed.
"It just sounds like demand, demand, demand," Viviana pointed out.
On the latest episode, Virginia also told Erik that she didn't want to move into his apartment after the show ended because she and her three pets wouldn't feel comfortable there.
"Her wanting to live separately is taking a step back, like, it worries me," Erik admitted to the cameras.
"She's finding excuses to not live with me, and I get the feeling she's going to get scared off and just run away... that's how she was in previous relationships, and I think about that. So it's hard."
However, the pair claim to be in love with each other, and they both try to find new and creative ways to show one another that they care.
When celebrating their one-month wedding anniversary, Erik took Virginia flying in a plane and she gifted him with sweet and thoughtful items, such as a blanket with her face on it.
Erik said his relationship was going better than he ever thought it would at the one-month mark.
