    I'm not sure if I consider myself high maintenance. But I'm pretty sure if I had the money to be I probably will be. I think being high maintenance is a good thing. You tend to take care of yourself more. The way you dress, feel, eat, and so forth. That's really great qualities to have.

    There's a stigma on being high maintenance. That stigma came from men.... because they don't want to pay for it. *laugh* Independent women won't let other's pay for her leisure and self - maintenance.

    I guess I will be high maintenance one day, but right now... I'm good. *smile*

    I've been told I'm high maintenance,but since I maintain myself,I will not deal with a man that can not do for me what I can do for myself.

    Luckily,my maintenance man wouldn't have it any other way.

    Interesting question. I haven't really thought about this before I would say I am low maintenance buy I am sure my girl will say otherwise. smile

    I'd definitely consider myself low maintenance for the most part, but I do like it if my girl is mid-maintenance. Definitely like taking care of her.

    I am one of those self maintained independent women. When you can take care of yourself, it brings greater respect into the relationship. No one can dictate to you what you can wear or what you can do with your hair. Instead, you have "give and take" and compromise.

    if you like the high maintenance look, you can do it on a budget; have the look at a much lower price. You can even authenticate the look by renting a Gucci bag or whatever your fancy may be at one of those websites like

    I'm high maintenance when it comes to what I eat or where I eat. I'm high maintenance when it comes to travel.  I love to travel and have acquired a taste for business class and first class having worked with a major international airline for a long time. I love to stay at the best hotels.  That was another perk of working with the airlines.

    I give myself the best that I can, because I owe it to myself and because I've worked hard. Those things that I can't do anymore, i just enjoy the memories; but I will always eat's part of my self love.

    I'm No maintenance.  I would think this question is more aptly put are you co-dependent,dependet or independent?
