    Low. I spend barely any time getting ready, and I don’t wear high-end clothes, carry an expensive purse, etc. And I feel awkward when people pay for things for me. So in that sense, I’m low maintenance.

    I’m about as low maintenace as you can get other than jewelry. Even then I’m happy with anything he gives me other than diamonds. I’m picky about my diamonds but since I’ll take anything else with gratitude and love, it’s not an issue for us.

    @Meowkers:  I’d say high maintenance. Many people have called me this throughout my life.

    This will make me sound like a total bitch, but I do have some good qualities too haha. When I’m not happy about something, people know. I don’t wear a ton of makeup, but I need to have a zillion bath/body/beauty products with me basically wherever I go. I carry a huge handbag most places lol. I don’t do camping. I can be needy emotionally. I’m also quite paranoid and a hypochondriac. I like to eat good food… I’m not the type to be happy with a pb&j sandwich. I love high heels and so can be irritating and not walk certain places. I’m very type A and highly strung.

    So basically yeah I am a bit of a pain in the ass 😛 Not exactly easy-going.

    Most people do say I’m nice… I am not sure I have any enemies or anything lol.

    I’m low-maintenance all around. I think Fiance is more high maintenance than me, though he’ll never admit it.

    I need very little to be happy and function. I’m very low maintenance. But I’ve elected for a more high maintenance lifestyle so I can enjoy a little spoiling before we have kids.

    I would say Low. I’m not a shopaholic kind of girl, don’t expect gifts from my hubbs, all I really want is his attention & love. I don’t wear make-up most days, only when we go out on our date nights.

    I would like to think i’m low and not fussy but then again my friends and family call me Princess [my name]. Mehh… mainly just to tease me that i take forever getting ready and I am particular about food and such.

    I’m low maintenance in terms of clothes, hair and make up.  I used to think of myself as a low maintenance person, but Fiance says I’m not! lol

    I think he means emotionally and stuff, I can be needy and clingy sometimes.  I think I’m also a little spoiled when it comes to going out and vacations.  I think he made me that way though lol.  I don’t force us into anything we can’t afford or drive us into debt to get what I want or anything.  We just like to stay at nice places and do nice things.

    Appearance/grooming I’d say medium-high maintenance: I get manis/pedis on a regular basis, wear make-up (more for work, less on the weekend) and recently started laser treatments.  I usually buy brand names, but for the quality, not for the name.  I don’t have any LV for example.  I try to look put together as often as possible, but the execution isn’t always perfect 🙂

    Emotionally, I’m low maintenance and down-to-earth.  I don’t need compliments or to hear “I love you” or “you’re so beautiful” all the time.  But we are touchy-feely with each other a lot.

    I don’t think I can answer that. I’m both, I love being  pretty when I go out. I like to make sure I look cute My make-up takes me two minutes if that. I only focus on my eyes. I hate foundation, concealer blush all that stuff. But then there are time when I really don’t care. I could go to the store in my Boyfriend’s shorts and tshirt and be fine with that too.

    Depends on who you ask- me or my fiancé!  I say low maintence. I get ready extremely quickly to go out, I’m very easy going, etc. he’d say I’m high maintenance because I expect him to call me just to say hi if I’m not seeing him that day. Lol

    High maintenance because I am mildy germophobic and I have an intensely good sense of smell so Fiance has to be pretty clean around me at all times (His foot odor actually makes me kind of nauseous).  I’m also very particular about wearing shoes in the house and being tidy so that annoys him and makes me seem kind of pushy, sometimes.  I also demand he text me whenever possible (lol) since we’re a long distance relationship.  I just like knowing he’s out there, safe, because he’s a police officer I tend to worry a lot.

    I do not wear any makeup, spend like 5 minutes on my hair in the morning since I no longer flat iron it every day. Lay out my clothes the night before. Not into making a project out of my appearance every day. Although I do have to do my nails every week french manicure. That’s the only thing- once the polish starts chipping in a weeks time it’s time for a new coat!

    I’d say I’m in the middle. I’m high maintenance for some stuff (I think I just always have had high relationship expectations) but am low maintenance for other stuff. I’m not the dramatic/gossipy type of high maintenance either 😉
