This has nothing to do with perfectionism!
The true cause of your problem is that you are afraid of commitment.
You start a game, realize it's going to take not days or weeks but umpteen million years to complete, so you get cold feet and subconciously come up with a reason to end the relationship.
You need to come to grips with your fear of long term relationships. Go ahead. Slip a garter over your computer and then say the vows: "I, Jay102, will respect, honor, and pay homage to AE now and in the future; in sickness and in health (preferably the former so that I can spend a day home planning my next invasion of Addu Atoll); for better (when my carriers achieve surprise) or worse (when my 36-ship xAK convoy bumps into a CA Aoba TF at night), till death do us part (hopefully death will catch me in late '42 if I'm the Allied player rather than in early '44 when things are just getting really fun)."
A committed relationship with AE entails remaining faithful and allowing noone to come between you and the game: not your children, your spouse, your elderly parents, or you Labrador Retriever "Butch" who you haven't taken for a walk in 17 days).
Good luck from the rest of us: The Committed, The Clever, the Obsessed.
