A The Daily Garriga classic!
Are you currently dating or married to a crazy girl? Are you crazy in love with her? If you aren’t sure then read on and find the answers you’ve been looking for.
A brief definition:
A “crazy girl” is an ambitious and accomplished woman who has achieved great things in her life and career, but who freaks out when in a relationship and may behave erratically due to over-analysis of ordinary events.
Here are the top five signs that you are in love with a crazy girl:
1. You are happy serving as her crisis counselor!
It seems as though crazy girls are always in the middle of a crisis. If she isn’t fretting over her girlfriend’s relationship drama, she’s worried about rising to the top of her career field by next week. The things your crazy girl worries about may not always seem that important in your mind, but they matter a great deal to her.
So, you do your best to put on a serious face and help her talk through her problems. It feels great to be there for your crazy girl when she’s feeling down or worried. She may tire you out with her constant worrying, but you recognize that her worries come from a good heart and an even better spirit, so you’re happy to serve as her crisis counselor. The best part is that this constant flow of communication serves to strengthen your relationship.
2. You are a master at dealing with her mood swings!
If you’ve dated more than one woman in your lifetime, you should understand very well that women can get moody from time to time. It doesn’t have to be a big deal if you don’t overreact to her moods and understand that it’s just a small part of her nature. However, when it comes to mood swings, crazy girls take the cake.
Crazy girls aren’t necessarily moodier than anyone else; it’s just that they are more willing to show their emotions. Your crazy girl may go from happy to sad to confused to excited to annoyed and back to happy all within one thirty-minute phone call. It can be very exhausting!
Despite it all, her moods help you to remember all the little things about her that you love. You never go more than a day without getting a generous dose of her passion, wit, charm, intelligence, strength, and tenderness. This helps you to recognize that your love for her is real.
3. You regularly praise and pamper her!
Crazy girls want to be loved – they need to be loved. Love is like oxygen to a crazy girl. You find yourself constantly complimenting her, buying her gifts, and showering her with affection. You do this because you believe it is a blessing to be with someone who is driven by love.
And why should you be stingy with your love? Why guard your love as though it is a limited commodity that will eventually run out? You understand that love is a renewable resource. Best of all, you know that for all the love you give her, you will get back that much more in return.
4. You admire her domestic aptitude!
You love that your crazy girl loves to cook for you. Each meal is prepared with care and with lots of veggies. Of course, your crazy girl goes into drill sergeant mode when in the kitchen and she demands that you immediately stop whatever you’re doing so that you can eat together. It doesn’t matter if you’re watching the game or finishing up a presentation for work tomorrow.
No cold plates in her kitchen! She might even monitor your plate to make sure that you eat all of your veggies. Yes, you’re a grown man and you don’t like being treated like a child, but you know that she wants you to be healthy and live for a long, long time. It makes you feel good that you’re with a woman who cares for you so much.
5. You love her ability to dream big!
Crazy girls are generally not shy when it comes to discussing the future. She has big plans when it comes to her career and personal life. If she isn’t telling you all about how she plans to be the next Oprah, she’s describing what she expects her epic wedding to look like.
It may be exhausting to spend so much time talking about such monumental goals, but you’re ready to do whatever it takes to help make her dreams come true. Her ability to dream big also pushes you to work harder than ever at being your best self.
Sure you have the talent and drive to excel on your own, but being with her is like having an awesome workout partner at the gym. You’ll probably work a lot harder and sweat a lot more with that great workout buddy, but in the end the result will speak for itself. While it may be possible to achieve that result on your own, it is so much sweeter when you have an incredible partner.
If you believe that you fit into the preceding criteria, then you, my friend, are in love with a crazy girl. If you still aren’t convinced that your woman is a crazy girl, I suggest that you talk to her and make her feel truly safe to express herself fully. You may be surprised by what she tells you.
I love my crazy girl and I wouldn’t trade our relationship for anything. I’m not going to lie, our relationship started out as rocky as it gets and we broke up several times before we figured out how to make it work. I’m glad I opened my heart to her, and that I took the time to really get to know her. Take as much time as you need to get to know your crazy girl and see where love takes you.
The bottom line is that dating a crazy girl can be fulfilling and make you a better person, but only if you know how to handle her. If you are confident, love yourself, and have a lot of patience and love in your heart, you’re in for the journey of a lifetime. Your crazy girl will exhaust you on a daily basis…and you will be happier than you’ve ever been.
