“I’m less unhappy with you than away from you.” Why is it so hard for women to see that that’s a compliment?

Because you’re saying that although you’re happier with her than away from her, you’re still unhappy! (Edited.)
But I can’t help that, can I? What if one is just a melancholic person?
Well that’s true I suppose, hmm it’s hard then, have you tried explaining that?
I have. It’s just that when I do, the result is invariably the same: the woman ends up feeling inadequate.
It’s like they’ve convinced themselves that their presence should miraculously and wholly mend my state of mind. And if it doesn’t, there is something seriously wrong—with them.
