But any heel over three inches is simply a disaster waiting to happen. Clowns go to school to learn to walk on stilts, yet certain women persist on teetering around in them without training whatsoever.One pavement crack away from a broken ankle, they walk slower than Jesus, always needing a man's hand to get down the stairs or help her up from the curbside onto which she fell.Guys: Since you can't seem to figure it out for yourselves, I'm going to be like your cool older sister who bought your sorry fifteen-year-old ass beer from the Quickmart and offer you a few tips on how to preemptively spot a high maintenance (or, as I like to call it, highmay) girlfriend.You can write these gals' seemingly benign behaviors off as girly or cute, or you can see them for what they are -- blinking red lights on the highmay highway urging you to slow down and reconsider.Before we start thinking about stereotypes and take out the “gold digger” card, think of high-maintenance women as women who merely have high standards, have lived those high standards, and expect those standards to be maintained.There really is nothing wrong with women who spend a little more time to look good, are motivated by their own standards, who know what they want, and are driven to succeed.

There need not be an occasion for you to gift her that purse she had been eying, which you noticed on sale! Public Affection Let her know that your display of affection in public is a result of the crazy love that you feel for her, and that you cannot help the mushy feelings when you are around her, and that they are way above the material gifts that you shower her with.
The phrase “high maintenance woman” casually refers to a woman who places exceptionally high standards on herself and her dating partner. She makes hoop-jumping seem like a normal part of dating, is constantly making their partners prove their worthiness either through displays of affection, commitment or status – which she may or may not reciprocate. Just about everyone tries to “spruce themselves up” for a dating partner; this type of woman might demand perfection in one or more of these areas.
According to researchers, “high maintenance” is just today’s term for a well-tuned competition strategy to win over a high mate-value partner. There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance. High maintenance women just “want it the way they want it” and settling for something less is just unacceptable.
If the answer to all or most of these questions is ‘yes’, you know what you’re dealing with.
The first rule is to never let her know that you think she is high-maintenance. The best way to deal with such a woman is to try and understand her methods and attitude, and attempt to live with them. Expensive Gifts While the only kinds of gifts that satisfy her are the ones with a hefty price tag, this may not always be possible for and fair to your pocket.
