Yes, it's hard. Relationships are very hard. How does a guy deem a girl as "psycho" when describing her to his next (yes I said it) girlfriend? When a guys says psycho, does he mean needy, whiny, temperamental, or moody? All of the above. How can a girl stop herself from being the psycho ex? Examine the list and see if you fall into any of the categories.
Let me count the ways ---
1- Call him more than 2xs a day and he hasn't called you once yet.
2- Tell him you miss him when you just saw him 5 minutes ago.
3- Ask him to come by and if he doesn't, you give him the silent treatment or worse, throw a temper tantrum.
4- Move in a few days or just a couple of weeks into the relationship.
5- Drunk dial him more than once a week.
6- Talk about your children together and you have been together less than a year.
7- Arrange his clothes drawers.
8- Do his laundry and you don't live together.
9- Don't want to go anywhere without him.
10- Are jealous of his friends and family.
11- Cry when he leaves you for the night or to go out with friends or family.
12- Call him repeatedly when he's out.
13- Expect him to let you know his every move.
14- Call him excessively at work.
15- Expect him to call you every day (GET REAL!!!)
16- Tell him you've talked to your therapist about him.
17- Tell him you just want to love him.
18- Tell him how he feels about you
19- Start using the word "we" when you are really talking about "you."
20- Don't listen to what he is saying and try to tell yourself what you think he means, and proceed to tell him.
I am sure I am missing loads more, please feel free to post your comments.
