I've seen this girl 4 times and she has complained or been super picky about a lot of things. Although she is a pretty nice person in other ways, the complaining and negativity is getting to me.


Doesn't like the smell of coffee.
Doesn't like the bed in her furnished apartment, too soft and too big.
Doesn't like visible cords on electronics. Told me to hid the cord if it was showing.
Doesn't like the color of her Wii. It's white but would look better with her stuff if black.
Doesn't like shellfish.
Old bedroom is too brite.
Old roommate is too noisy.
Can't hang out with school friends because she has too much stuff to do.
No towel racks in her bathroom.
Her new living is too brite.
Doesn't like the color of her new hallway.
Upstairs neighbors being too noisy.
DVDs must be in alphabetical order.
All skirts must be on one color hanger, all pants on another color, etc.
Landlords didn't clean apartment enough before she moved in.


I'm sure there is more, but you get the picture. While some of these are valid, why voice them? No one likes a downer. I felt bad for her at first, but I'm thinking now, what's the point of trying to cheer up a negative person.

Kind of makes you wonder if she is going to start complaining about you, no?

yes, i am. but when i am out with someone i don't complain or am not picky about every little thing. for one it makes me feel like they are having a bad time, so i don't have a very good time. also, i try to do things that she will like in hopes of making nothing to complain about, but that is stupid, because she should just be more positive without needing things to be a certain way.

like when we first met we went to lunch and i ordered lamb. she has something against lamb, because it's not ecological enough or watever because it's a baby animal. so i ordered beef, although i did want the lamb, but she spoiled it for me.

i had picked places she liked a couple times, then i had limited choices last time we went out for dinner and we went to sushi. i always love this particular sushi place and was excited to go. but with her it sucked. she was just being weird about the sushi, because she doesn't eat shellfish, raw fish and prefers organic meat. she wasn't being awful, but it was a negative vibe.

then yesterday, i was hungry and we were out getting her chai that she always has to get. so i saw taco bell. I don't eat much fast food but i was really hungry. So then, I hear about how taco bell doesn't even have real beef.

She seems very controlling. You can either:

a) Stop seeing her and move on

b) Buy the whips and chains and go with it

she is just self-unaware and probably spouts off any thought that comes to mind. i dont think she is necessarily negative or un-fun nor does she need cheering. she probably forgets what she says as soon as it comes out her mouth. you should just do whatever you want instead of trying to react to her comments.
