An 18-year-old young man

“My girlfriend tried to push me off a cliff as a ‘joke’.”
The Original Poster (OP) explained:
My girlfriend (20/f) is completely crazy but mostly in a good way. Spontaneous is an understatement. Sometimes she goes too far but I love her for her crazy personality. I (18/m) am more relaxed and we balance each other out. Two recent incidents really freaked me out though and I need advice.
I was driving on a the highway with a lot of traffic. We were going maybe 40 mph. She suddenly started tickling me and wouldn’t stop when I yelled at her. I jammed on the brake and someone almost hit us from behind. I asked her what the fuck is wrong with her but she just laughed about it and told me to chill. I said “what would make you want to do that?” and she said “idk, just felt like it.”
Then last Saturday I was hiking with her and I was standing near this steep cliff. I’m usually wary of her because you never know what she’s gonna do even though it’s usually just a prank or something. I let my guard down and she went behind me and pushed me towards the cliff and I swear I almost fell off. She did it hard and I ended up right at the edge. She was laughing so hard. I freaked out and started screaming at her and I may have been out of line but holy shit. She laughed about it at first but then she started crying and saying she was so sorry.
The next day she started texting me saying that she didn’t mean any harm and she just “didn’t know” that I would get so mad at her for doing that. Am I crazy for even thinking about this? Is it possible she’s just immature and if I get back with her she’ll be different? I’m kind of lonely and I really love her but this really made me rethink the situation because now I feel like she’s legit crazy, not just fun crazy. Thanks for your advice.
