Without question, having a girlfriend is a chore - but a good/great woman makes that chore worth it and more.
Most women have no idea how demanding and needy they can be. They tend to need LOTS of attention and when they get emotional, they often really lean on their man for support - and that's okay if it's something that doesn't happen too often, but much less "okay" if it happens all the time.
As I said, the best women are those who are aware of their needs and the time and effort I put in to meeting those needs, and who in turn does other things to make other parts of my life easier. Such women are gold.
Others just take and take. That's less of a problem for me (because I don't put up with that), but I see a lot of guys whose girlfriends/wives have them constantly running or doing things for her - or just can't leave them alone for 5 minutes without needing attention from them. Those guys might spend 20-30 hours a week putting effort into their girl - but only 5 of those hours might be spending time with her in a way that HE actually enjoys - the rest of the time being him doing things for HER that he wouldn't otherwise have any need to do. To me, that's a very unhealthy ratio.
Don't get me wrong - guys can be difficult too; I've seen that plenty.
The best relationships are those when both people really try to keep their partner's interests and perspectives in mind, and work to help each other instead of working against each other.1

Not really a chore but there is a lot of work involved and time and patience, etc. And some people aren't ready to put in all that work or to sacrifice all that time. Its like having to take care of another person plus taking care of yourself.1
