- examples: who drives to visit whom more often, who pays, who makes more sacrifices, who gets to choose how mutual time is spent (his activities vs.
her activities), who has more limits (e.g., she has to call/be home by a certain time, but he can do whatever the hell he wants).
3.) A man who wants a groupie MORE than he wants a partner - needs to be fawned over, told how impressive he is, how strong and manly he is... While I wouldn't want this, many women I know would revel in the opportunity to run his life for him. Is this a sign of high maintenance or of a low life.

It’s the cumulation of living with these contortionist adjustments, day-in day-out, that becomes a huge problem. You’ve created a monster by allowing this behaviour to continue, so now it’s time to establish some healthy boundaries.
All those things you’ve stopped doing because of him? Yes there’ll be drama from his end, but you can’t buy into it.
A lazy guy who works sporadically outside the house and not at all, in it.
