10 Signs He’s a High-Maintenance Boyfriend

We all have those girlfriends who can be a little too high-maintenance, but sadly this disease is spreadin’ to the fellas, too! Maybe there’s just something in that bubbly, imported French water, but it seems like the metro-man was bit by a radioactive spider and has mutated into a more obnoxious version of his former self. So to help you navigate this new strain of guy-folk, TheFrisky.com has compiled a list of 10 “highmay” men to turn and run from.

If your dude is on a diet and spending ALL his free time at the gym, then get the heck outta there! An in-shape guy is sexy, but an over-buffed gym rat whose idea of a romantic date is sharing a salad and a bottle of muscle milk is so totally not.

I know our culture is all obsessed with vampires right now, but if your guy wears more eyeliner than you do and thinks immortal love blood pacts are “super sweet,” shut the lid on his coffin and go find yourself a macho day-walker.

Sensitive types are great and all, but when the first sounds you hear after the deed are him sobbing, don’t wait around to see what’s wrong. Grab your clothes and never look back!

    “when the first sounds you hear after the deed are him sobbing, don’t wait around to see what’s wrong. Grab your clothes and never look back!” While it would be kinda weird for a guy to sob after ‘the act’, its very cold to just run away- what if the guy is only sobbing because the last girl he slept with was his girlfriend who died violently? Maybe try to find out what’s happening first and then politely walk off. Just a few hints to (try and) make the world a better place…

    I’ve never dated a high maintenance man, but we have plenty at work and in my tennis club. The arrogant and condescending kind. I just want to get as far away from them as possible.
