1) Have patience.
2) Have a backbone.
Yep, sometimes you just need to stand up for yourself. Being a high maintenance girlfriend myself, sometimes it just takes my boyfriend to tell me straight and basically put me in my place!
3) Make sure you have your shoes on the second she’s ready.
Oh god, she’s taken 2 hours to get ready and now she’s yelling at you because you don’t have your shoes or your coat on? BIG MISTAKE DUDE…BIG. MISTAKE. Take it from me, put your shoes on that extra five minutes early and your night will be a lot easier.
4) Be prepared for makeup products, clothes, magazines, appointment cards, hair brushes and lord knows what else scattered around your room. And just deal with it.
Now don’t say I didn’t warn you…
5) Compliments are key.
A high maintenance girlfriend will usually put lots of time, money, and effort into looking her best. So a compliment every now and again goes a looooong way. Don’t get me wrong, this definitely isn’t a one way street. High maintenance gals love dishing out the compliments too…because who doesn’t love getting their ego stroked once in a while? And she knows that.
6) Plan around her prep.
High maintenance girlfriends value their prep time before a night out, date, or even a walk to the park. Don’t rush her…and try to plan around her prep time. It may sound vain and basically pretty lame…but it’s not! Not all people feel comfortable without wearing makeup or looking their best, so when they look good, they feel good – and you should respect that.
7) Give reassurance.
It may seem tiring, but offering her reassurance that you love her just the way she is (high maintenance or not!) will do a world of good. This is a no brainer really.
So there’s a few tips from me!
