10 Signs She Is A High Maintenance Girl
She not only has high expectations with respect to material things but also with respect to her need for love and attention.
1. A high maintenance girl is self-obsessed
All that your girlfriend cares about is her appearance and what others think about her. She has attention-seeking tendencies. Her obsession with her personal image will become evident to you after a point. She will always strive to achieve her idea of perfection. This will show in the way she conducts herself. Though this might seem harmless at first, it will become intolerable when you realise this is all she cares about. Her inability to prioritise your needs to make you even slightly happy is one of the red flags of a materialistic girl.

2. She criticizes your dressing style
Girls who are high maintenance are conscious about their looks and their image in front of others. While you are dating her, you are a part of her image too. Therefore, she will want you to match up to her level to impress others.

She will make you feel like a trophy boyfriend in front of her friends.

4. A high maintenance girl takes ages to get ready
She is never on time at any event. Imagine telling her to meet you at 7:00 p.m., and when you call her at 7, she’s still not done styling her hair. It takes her hours to get herself all prim and proper. If this is not a sign of a high maintenance girlfriend, then what is?
5. It’s not easy to please a high maintenance girl
A high maintainence girl like her own suggestions and plans best. Therefore, your innovative, out of the box ideas might not impress her. She might put on a happy face for your sake but you’ll be able to tell she’s not as pleased as she should be.
6. She’s controlling
A relationship involves two people making decisions together. In your case, she is somehow always the one telling you what to do. She chooses the high-end bar that you should be seen in with your friends, or tells you to hang out at an upmarket club and gets upset if you have friends who do not fit her bill of “successful people”. It is essential for her to make everything fit her idealistic view. You are no exception. She wants you to behave in a way she approves of and therefore ends up being controlling of your every action.
7. She tells you what to buy her

8. She wants you to be her personal chauffer
You’re always picking up and dropping her everywhere. As cute as it might sound, it’s not possible to pick her and drop her every time you meet her. It becomes tiresome and expensive especially when you both live quite far from each other. But she isn’t willing to understand the situation. When you talk to her about it, she emotionally manipulates you and you have no other choice but to give in.
9. Materialistic things make a high maintenance girl happy
Your high maintenance girlfriend loves you when you buy her expensive gifts! Nothing makes her as happy as fancy shiny things with huge price tags. It doesn’t matter if you end up being in debt. The way to ger heart is through your credit card. Feelings, emotions and love don’t matter much to her as much as materialistic things do. Sometimes you may even feel that you need to keep buying her expensive things to earn her love. Ask yourself, is she with you because she loves you or because of the gifts you buy her?
