    High maintenance, but it’s mostly about food and washrooms, hahaha.

    High maintenance all around. I like nice things, like to do nice things, and I have my moments when I’m probably too emotional. DH is totally the opposite, where he is fine staying inside wearing a sweatshirt that he has worn for two days and he normally doesn’t get riled up about anything. So, I think we balance each other out…He brings me down to earth when needed and I don’t spend as much money, and I make him go out and do things he probably wouldn’t have done otherwise.

    Low to medium. I want to look put together but honestly  I rarely ever wear make up. I really only just brush my hair and make sure it’s washed. I think perfume and deodrant are my biggest musts. Clothes wise I try and look decent. It’s really not too important to me.

    When it comes to getting ready I am pretty low maintence. I don’t wear make up and my hair  is straight most of the times.  Although when it’s curly it takes forever to style and has a 50/50 chance of looking good. I do  like nice purses on occassion. Emotionally I would say I’m low maintence as well. I know my SO loves me and that’s good enogh for me.  I don’t really have to be held a lot or told I’m beautiful constantly. I like to snuggle every once in a blue moon and we hold hands when we are out occassionally. I’m not opposed to physcial affection but if it doesn’t happen daily I’m ok because when it does it’s extra special.

    I wish there was a “very high” choice.  I take a long time to get ready, am extremely picky, and a lot to handle.  I am also very hard to please and even harder to impress.  Ugh, I’m such a brat ๐Ÿ™

    I’m very low maintenance in regards to appearance.  Sometimes, I wish I fussed a bit more than I do.  Physical affection is where I can get a bit needy.  I’ve gotten better, but wow it was bad a few years ago!

    Relatively high, probably. I pay attention to my appearance (usually don’t leave the house without my hair looking at least decent and basic makeup on), but in other areas as well, like I need a lot of mental stimulation and trying new things and I take my husband along for the ride ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t require a huge amount of attention from external sources, but I do pay a lot of attention to myself (in what I think is a non-conceited way, I’m just autonomous!) so I’d probably land in the high maintenance category pretty squarely if I had to choose one. Ideally I’d say moderate maintenance lol.

    I’ve always been high maintenance physically…I take forever to get ready (and I wish I could cut down, but don’t know how!). I don’t require Fiance to take me places, buy me things, shower me with things, blah blah blah, but I do constantly buy myself new clothes, get my hair and nails done, buy new shoes, etc. I think I’m more high maintenance for myself than anyone else.

    I actually had a guy I dated for a very short time ask me “So, like, are you a high maintenance girl?” and I was barely 20 at the time, so I said “Well, what exactly do you mean by that?” and he responded “I will buy a pair of jeans at JC Penney and wear them for years. Would you do that?” Well, I’m a girl who enjoys expensive denim so I simply told him no, and that fizzled out (we were SO NOT compatible in any way possible). I actually had a little sign that said high maintenance hanging on my closet door in my bedroom, that a friend got me after she heard about the guy asking me about being high maintenance ๐Ÿ™‚

    Im low maintenance insofar as my appearance. I rarely wear makeup, I don’t get my nails done (do them myself), and my hair is usually pulled up into a ponytail. As far as my emotional side, I tend to go with the flow, be non-confrontational and generally easy-going. However, I do enjoy getting affection and emotional support from my husband.

    I am incredibly low maintenance. I only spend a few minutes getting ready each morning and I really don’t require a lot of attention.

    Low.  I love being outdoors and I love being effortlessly elegant.  I hope to live off the grid!

    Personality wise, I’m definitely not low maintenance because I expect a lot from my fiance, and others. I’m hard to impress. I’m kind of a brat and I’m a bit spoiled. I do not let my fiance do whatever he wants… AKA I said no to strippers, etc.

    Looks wise, pretty low maintenance. AKA, I just put your hair in a pony tail with light makeup most of the time. I work outside and live on a farm (though not a working farm anymore, it’s defintiely a farm) I’m happiest in a simple sundress and flip flops.
