High-maintenance women. A reader actually asked, "Why don't you write a Top 10 Signs She Is Not High-Maintenance since all women are high-maintenance?" Funny stuff; the man does have a point, so I guess we will hit you with that one later. In the meantime, enjoy this one and discover whether or not you're dating a high-maintenance woman.
10. She's unfair
She asks you to drive her somewhere, and you get yelled at for being stuck in traffic. You go for a walk, and she gets peeved because it starts to rain. You stop by to surprise her with pizza, but she blasts you for not getting burgers.
9. She's daddy's girl
She has never earned anything in her life; she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth and requires the help of servants to remove it. Her idea of protection is the insurance clauses on her daddy's platinum card.
8. Going out is like the countdown to eternity
Going out for a night on the town should be more fun than this, but you must give her a 48-hour heads up when you want to go out, since getting ready entails calling in the jaws of life, especially considering that she applies a pound of goo on her face.
7. She has irrational demands
She is used to drinking watered down cocktails when she's drinking on her tab, but when Daddy Warbucks comes knocking, it's Dom Perignon time.
6. Bills, bills, bills
Her answering machine greets you with the Destiny's Child tune. You have never seen her wallet, she has never paid for a thing, and the only bills she's accustomed to are the credit card kind.
5. She's not comfortable with herself
We like attractive women who take care of themselves, but we also want women who can be themselves ‑- track pants, ponytails and all. If she needs a wall of gunk on her face to look you in the eyes, then she just might have an issue.
4. She doesn't know the definition of sacrifice
Relationships are meant to be about compromise, but she is more about selfishness. You bend and adapt to her needs, yet all she gives you are ultimatums.
3. She's difficult to please
No matter what you do or say, she will want something else. No matter how much you try to please her, you will always fall short. She has never cracked a smile and has a tendency to rain on your parade.
2. She's socially inept
She only hangs out with people who can offer her something, and she is a social burden the rest of the time, eating into your good times and peace of mind.
1. She needs to be in control
Most women admit that being high-maintenance comes down to being in charge and running the show. They need to feel that it is their call; their way or the highway. It's up to you to show them otherwise.
