Last time I checked, having standards doesn’t make a woman high-maintenance, it just makes her a person who knows what she wants.
It doesn’t make her a mission impossible, it just requires a bit more effort than it normally would.
And putting in extra effort can be a problem to some, which is why it’s always easier to come up with excuses than it is to step up your game.
She is the kind of woman who doesn’t depend on anyone.
It’s because she knows to lean on someone in life means to be left without anything once that someone decides to walk away from her.
That’s why she takes care of herself and she makes life good for herself. She doesn’t need you to do that for her.
She’s perfectly capable of doing it on her own.
She knows her worth.
She feels good about herself and she isn’t afraid to show it. But she only feels this way because she’s worked hard on herself.
She’s aware of how much she brings to the table and she always keeps in mind that she’s more than good enough.
And there is nothing more valuable in this world than a woman who knows her worth.
She knows where she wants to be in life. And she knows how to get there too. She’s a person who constantly pushes her limits and who’s constantly trying.
She keeps working on herself. She takes care of her looks and her brains as well.
She knows what she deserves.
And she isn’t settling for anything less. That’s why she might appear as high-maintenance to some. But she is just asking for as much as she’s ready to give and that’s all.
In case you’re failing to reach her standards or win her over, perhaps it’s not the problem that she has set her standards high, but that you have your efforts set really low?
You don’t get to disrespect her.
She doesn’t let people treat her badly and she never allows other people to project their insecurities on her.
She is a high-value woman and she holds her head high. That’s why she’ll never put up with someone who tries to bring her down to feel good about himself or with someone who disrespects her.
You don’t get to treat her right only sometimes.
She wants constant effort and she deserves someone who’ll treat her right on all occasions.
She deserves someone who’ll treat her right even when she makes a mistake. She deserves someone who’ll try constantly to prove his love, his admiration and his commitment to her.
You don’t get to be mediocre.
With her, it’s all or nothing. Why do anything half-heartedly? You either do it right or don’t bother doing it at all.
So don’t bother trying to get in her life if you’re going to do things half-heartedly. Don’t bother trying to make her notice you if you have this custom of settling. She never settles.
She aims high and she is restless until she gets there. That’s what she wants from her partner too.
With a woman who’s aiming high in life and isn’t settling for less than she deserves, you can’t really think you get to have her while being just average.
If she stands out, you’ll have to do something so you’d stand out too, in order for her to be able to notice you. But if you’re going to give up because ‘it’s just too much work’, don’t accuse her of being high-maintenance.
You’re low effort and that’s where the problem lies.
If you want a great woman in your life, you don’t get to be with her by making her lower her standards but by stepping up your game and making sure you’re at the same level.
No excuses, just hard work. That’s how things are done with her.
