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."
Me: "SHUT UP AND DRIVE ME THROUGH WENDY'S FOR A FROSTY!"
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!
