High Maintenance

Urban Dictionary - High Maintenance: "Requiring a lot of attention.  Being emotionally needy or prone to over-dramatizing a situation to gain attention".

Today my friend who happens to be a boy told me I was high maintenance.
Here was the exact conversation.
Me: "I'm not high maintenance, am I?"
Him: "Well, I would say you're more high maintenance than the average girl."
Ok...that last part wasn't exactly what I said, but something like that.
Him telling me that really upset me because I like to think I'm pretty low maintenance.
I mean, sure, I like to have my curling iron, blow dryer, straightener, and billion makeup products laying around all the time, but that doesn't mean I'm high maintenance right?
It doesn't take me 2 hours to get ready and I'm pretty easy going.
He said there's nothing wrong with being high maintenance and some guys like it.
I've never really met a guy who has said, "Man, I really hope I find a high maintenance girl!"
Maybe it isn't such a bad thing, but I certainly took it that way.
Perhaps the fact that I'm writing an entire post about this particularly ridiculous topic proves I am, indeed,  high maintenance.
I guess you can't win 'em all.
C'est la vie.
That was too many puns in one little section!


  1. I never thought I was high maintenance until Chase said something about it. I was like, "What? Just because I like my hair, makeup and nails to be perfect and I love shoes and purses and hate when you play are your Iphone when we're out to dinner, that makes me high maintenance?" Oh well. When I think of someone who is low maintenance, I think of a girl with no makeup and generally doesn't care how she looks. Maybe there's a happy medium between the two extremes. And tell the boy to shut up because he doesn't know anything!

  2. haha I think there's a happy medium and I genuinely think I am somewhere around there. Although, I have heard before that a girl needs to either be extremely low maintenance or just go all out crazy! haha
