She’s the object of your obsession. You’ve always wanted to date her. Like since middle school. But you must be committed to her though. She’s demands it because she’s hot, remember?!
She’s emotionally unstable and insecure. You must give her all the emotional energy and time you have and then some more. Even when you don’t have any more to give. It’s never enough. Oh, and she can’t ever look fat in that dress. So constantly shower attention and affection her way.
She requires all of your attention. You can’t be looking at other girls, I mean, startups or jobs. She’ll wander off as fast as you can blink. Or worse, she’ll throw your crap out on the curb, or sell it on Craigslist. She knows when your spotlight isn’t on her.
She needs your singular focus. Hobbies and other things (like your silly workout routine) get cut because she takes all your time. Maybe some friends too who just don’t understand your relationship. She’ll also wake you up in the middle of the night with superficial needs like reminding her why she’s the only one for you. You will need to talk it out until the sun rises and you need to be at the office.
She gets super jealous. Like going from zen to nuclear war in 5 seconds. Seriously, don’t even think about looking elsewhere, or else she’s gone! And every other relationship will be looked on with skepticism and envy,
OH … if you make it a couple of years together … in some kind of miracle … she’s going to want kids, a new house, new clothes, a new car. And you get to start over with a whole new set of demands. 🙂
UPDATE: Brad shared with me this video on the Hot/Crazy Scale from How I Met Your Mother. It cracked me up so I thought I’d share.
