Hot girls are (usually) higher maintenance. The reason? Higher
dating market value means she can demand more – and will.
I had a beautiful, intelligent, ambitious girlfriend in the room
with me when I finally got through to the state’s Department of Revenue
to ask about a somewhat large tax bill I’d gotten. It was a weird tax
situation, where I thought I’d paid all the taxes I owed, and yet I
received this letter saying I had back taxes and need to pay now or
they were going to come and get me.
So I called the department, got a very nice, jovial guy on the
phone, he looked through my record, and was as stumped as I was. He
admitted several times my case was outside his usual depth and he
get legal counsel to look at this issue. He was as unsure about whether
I actually was legally obligated to pay this tax or not.
Anyway, I got off the phone and my girlfriend, who’d been lying on
the bed, said, “Well?” And I said well, the guy at the tax department
doesn’t know either. So I can get some legal counsel and see what they
have to say. Or I can just pay it and be done with it. Or I could...
And then she flipped out. “You don’t owe that tax. And you would
just pay it? I just lost a lot of respect for you,” she told me. And
then she stormed out of the room.
I didn’t have a chance to say well wait a second, I think there’s a
pretty good chance I actually DO owe this tax. I didn’t get to mention
that I just got new information and was in the process of processing my
options, and since she asked me immediately she heard Chase thinking
She simply immediately sprung to, “He shouldn’t have to pay this. I
think he is just going
to roll over and pay it anyway. Therefore, he is weak. Thus, I
am disgusted with him. Why am I with a weak man?”
(for the record, the odds I would actually pay something, no matter
how large or small, without making sure I absolutely owed it first are
near-zero. But I will not rule out an option until I’ve examined all my options)
I eventually explained the situation, and this girlfriend chilled
back out. But not before she’d locked herself in a room to make it
impossible for me to resolve the situation with her, leaving me to stew
with the negative emotions she’d just dumped on me. Thanks, babe.
You might be thinking Man, that
girlfriend sounds like a bitch! Well, every girlfriend I
take has a low tolerance for perceived weakness. Yet it’s not just me
either... every man I know with a genuinely hot girlfriend deals with
stuff like this too. It is not a fluke; it’s a pattern: hotter
girls are higher maintenance.
