If you met a woman and fell in love, wouldn’t you just love to spend the rest of your life with her? That would be ideal right? Well, if that’s the case then getting to know the signs that she is high maintenance will help you avoid a potential dilemma.
1. She’s Picky About Plans
Has your girlfriend ever changed plans on you last minute? Maybe she was supposed to go out with you on Saturday night and decided she’d rather stay home and watch Netflix instead. She might tell you that she wants to spend more time with you, but if this keeps happening then what she’s telling you isn’t the truth. If a woman is being high maintenance and isn’t worried about how it affects you, then she doesn’t care about your feelings at all.
2.She’s Really Clingy
If your girlfriend calls or texts you multiple times a day because she just needs to know where you are every single second of the day, then there’s no doubt that she’s high maintenance. You have a life outside of her, so why should you need to answer her call or text every time? It’s not your job to be available for her at all times, and if she expects this from you then it’s time for her to find someone else who can answer her call every time.
3.She Wants to Re-do Anything You Do for Her
If you’re doing something nice for her, like cooking her dinner or cleaning her house, does she complain about how you did it? Does she make you change it? Does she refuse to acknowledge what you did because it wasn’t perfect?
4.She Complains About Everything
If your girlfriend is never satisfied about anything and always complains about everything, this is a pretty clear sign that she’s high maintenance. When someone is picky and unhappy all of the time, it can become very tiring to be around her because you’ll feel like nothing ever pleases her.
5.She’s a control freak
A high-maintenance woman is likely a control freak and doesn’t like other people telling her what to do. She’s also insecure and needs constant reassurance from you that she’s beautiful and smart. If you tell her she looks nice in something and then she changes into something else, it’s because she doesn’t believe you or wants you to keep complimenting her until you “get it right.”
6. She talks a lot about herself
If all your conversations are about her, there’s definitely something wrong with your relationship. A high-maintenance girl is extremely self-centered, so try talking about yourself and see how long it takes before the conversation gets steered back to her.
7.She Makes You Feel Like Less Of A Man
High maintenance women don’t hesitate to remind their men that they’re the boss. They don’t think twice before making their partners feel dumb or useless. They will always put themselves before their partners, even if it makes their partners look bad in public.
8.She never admits that she’s wrong.
Whether it’s admitting that she’s jealous or admitting that she was wrong about something, this is something that a high maintenance woman can never do — because admitting that she was wrong means admitting that she isn’t perfect, and a high maintenance woman can never do that!
9.She seems like she has everything figured out
The thing about high maintenance women is that they seem like they have everything figured out. They seem like they’re perfect in every way possible. If you’re seeing this in your girlfriend, then it’s likely that she’s high maintenance.
10.She expects the best of everything
High maintenance women expect the best of everything. They want their food to look fancy and they want their drinks to taste fancy too. If your girlfriend is super picky about what she eats and drinks, then it’s likely that she’s high maintenance as well.
11. She’s A Total Diva
A high-maintenance gal will expect you to treat her like royalty. And that means she wants to be treated like a princess when she’s out in public. If your girl is constantly demanding that you push her around in a wheelchair, then you should start looking for someone with legs that work. And don’t even get me started on her insistence that you find her the perfect glass slipper.
12.She is always late
You are a punctual person and you expect other people to be punctual as well. But she never, ever shows up on time and she doesn’t seem to care how much it bothers you.
13.Her outfits are always on point
Everyone wants to look their best at all times but when you have a high maintenance woman in your life, it’s next level. She takes pride in her appearance and will never leave the house without being fully dressed up with her hair and make-up done just right.
14.She has a signature scent
A signature scent is required for the high maintenance woman because she would never want to smell like everyone else. She might even come up with her own perfume if she can’t find one that suits her taste. This helps her stand out from other women because there is no mistaking her smell when she walks into a room.
15.She never makes the first move
When you go out with your friends or family, it’s always up to you to initiate things. Whether you’re calling her on the phone or sending her an email, it’s always going to be at least two hours before she responds back to you.
You don’t ask her where she wants to eat. She’ll make the decision for you! And when you guys go out on your date, she’ll never pay for anything…even though she ordered the most expensive dish on the menu.
Ideally, you don’t want to date a high maintenance woman. However, if you have, it’s helpful to know what you’re getting into, and why it’s not a good idea. Understanding the signs of a high maintenance woman is the first step in managing your expectations for the relationship.
