Dating high maintenance women
Came across this article today on high maintenance women. I can see the argument of the author that women need to "shrink themselves" so they don't seem high maintenance by people they are trying to attract. I know there have been countless threads on women in finance/but I don't think I have seen any healthy discussions on this topic.
My POV on high maintenance is that yes it can be a lot of "labor" (financial or dedicating time) and I prefer to have an equal/balanced relationship where she also dedicates the same in return, ofc I am not going to count every single detail.
If the woman needs a lot of expensive things (hence why she is seen as high maintenance) then she should either support herself or accept the fact that many men can't afford to or don't want to support their lifestyle (in both cases resulting in a smaller pool of potential mates). so either they support themselves and make it clear that they are not expecting their SO to support them or stop complaining about how their dating pool is small. This is only for financial needs assuming there isn't something serious / out of the woman's control that is preventing them from supporting themselves. Dedicating time is a different thought process, for me.
Would like to hear what my fellow monkeys think or your experience dating high maintenance women.
