Is yours?

Is yours?

One in five women think their man is high maintenance so we find out  why!


Have a strop/fit when they don’t get their own way- It’s childish and we all do it but we don’t expect it from a grown man. Our equivalent I guess is to cry!

Needing a reply to a text message/email straight away- If he trusts you then this seems a little excessive.

Need to be told ‘I love you’ several times a day- Too many times and it might become like the boy who cried wolf and it doesn’t actually mean anything anymore.

Always late- Because he has been faffing with his hair or deciding what to wear- have we swapped roles?

Spends longer in the bathroom than you do- What do they need to do other than shower and shave their face? Really?!

Spend a lot of time on their looks/appearance- If he is worried about being prettier than you it might be time to call it a day- we have enough confidence flatteners without that being compared to our girlfriends and our partners!

Won’t wear anything which isn’t branded or designer- So when his Birthday and Christmas come around your skint after buying one item of clothing!

Need to have their calls answered within a certain number of rings- Then he starts to ask you what you’re doing or where you are- there are other things going on in my life besides you!

Always worrying about how they look- People don’t care as much as you think they do- for they too have lives and are not going to freak out if they see a stray nose hair!

Refuses to go camping- There is no way to straighten his hair, or get a proper shower and shave- the world might end!


Refuses to use public transport- For it is always crammed and smelly- if your car breaks you will just have to suck it up!

Won’t step outside the house without their hair styled- The neighbours might talk- of course they will!

Need kisses/a certain number of kisses on the end of a text or email- We all know that one is too few – you have almost regressed to friend territory again- too many and you are overbearing.

Refuses to walk anywhere- What if he steps in dog dirt, or damages his new shoes? Oh the potential drama!

Need their home to be spotless- Your drinks are emptied in the sink before you have finished them and your just opened post has been filed away before you have had a chance to see how much debt you are in on your credit card. (maybe that’s not so bad!)

Constantly looking at themselves in a mirror- No your appearance has not changed in the last fifteen minutes!

Will only eat out at ‘nice’ restaurants- Gone are the days of slumming it with a packet of chips or a maccys- there are no amount of sad faces that can convey how down I feel about this.

Not liking to get dirty- So no holidays in the countryside or any alfresco bonking then.

Will only stay in 4 or 5* hotels- So a surprise weekend away bankrupts you until next pay day or at the very least empties your savings all because he wants a heated towel rail and an espresso machine.

Not likely to get sweaty- It’s natural to get sweaty when you do exercise or if its hot outside- as long as you don’t smell- what’s the big deal?


Will only drink bottled water- Which is tap water in a fancy glass!

Changes outfits several times a day- For who? Me? I go from work clothes to pjs- so really not bothered!

Need to have a present bought for them at least once a week- Or you are the worst girlfriend in the world? What happened to sex being a good enough gift?

Constantly pouting- You start to think his face won’t ever go back to normal.

Will only drink fine wine- So a cheap and cheerful night out on the lash has now turned into a pretentious wine club. Members- 2- you and me- because none of our friends can afford it. Scratch that- neither can we!
