The OP mentioned that he thinks it would be good to have some time apart
OP's GF said that’s not an option and that she was offended he would even ask
And the comments from other Redditors roll in...
From a Redditor who's a cat owner too
The OP's feeling his girlfriend is being demanding
She only seems to get more demanding
This Redditor reveals what they find exhausting
Dinner every night? That sounds exhausting — are you sure you want to be in this relationship if your preferences don’t count for anything? That’s also BS with the dogs vs. cats — like sure, dogs tend to be more “needy” (I love dogs) — but an evening alone once or twice a week won’t hurt them, if you give them a nice setup (food, bed, water, ambient sound, etc…).
Your gf sounds needy as hell, and I would draw a clear boundary in this situation. She can either accept that boundary, or end the relationship.
She refused the time apart
OP's GF sounds very toxic
That kind of behavior is controlling
It's not going to get better
What is she going to do?
Compared to dogs, cats tend to be less active and require less exercise. Although every cat is unique, they are also typically more independent, so you might be dealing with a real snuggle bug.
Some Redditors say that the OP's girlfriend lacks empathy for his cat, and he should say what works for him. Drop your thoughts about this story in the comments section below.
