Are you High Maintenance?
Whether or not you think the above test is scientific (it’s not) it’s still a great question. How high maintenance are you to your partner? Of course, this can be a can of worms, as even a low maintenance person can seem high maintenance to a partner who tends to be self-centered.
Ultimately, you have to go on whether or not your needs are being met and vice-versa. If you’re in a relationship that’s working, keep at it. If not, you’ll need to assess whether your unmet needs are due to you being high maintenance and impossible to please, or not.
Yeah, you may need an outside opinion – and it’s worth getting!
