A High Maintenance Broad

If you ask me, I'm pretty low-maintenance.  I'm not terribly particular and I have a tendency to go with the flow.  I don't kick up much of a fuss.  When I say I'll be ready in 15 minutes I generally mean it - I'm not a primper.  I don't expect jewelry or any other manner of fanciness for - well, really - anything.  I like people who are who they are and if someone tried to change for me, I would be more horrified than pleased.

I'm easy like Sunday Morning.

That's the very definition of low-maintenance, no?

Well, no.

Turns out I'm high emotional maintenance.

I need a lot of reassurance.  My feelings get hurt at every real and imagined slight.  I need to know where I stand.  Tell me more about my eyes.

I'm not, apparently, always easy to be around.

A high-maintenance frumpy bohemian.  Sounds like an oxymoron.  But it's not.  It's me.  (And you - the one who said, "Not an oxymoron, then, just a regular moron." - you're not even half as clever as you think you are.)

What sort of maintenance do you require?

I'm the particular, not going with the flow type of high maintenance. It's called "controlling". Ugh!

My hubby would say that I am emotionally high maintenance, too. I don't like criticism, and I want to be praised for what I do. I've gotten better about the praise thing, though. A friend told me to repeat "I approve of myself" a dozen times every day using exactly those words. It seemed to establish a pattern. If you Google those words, you'll probably find a whole system behind them, but I never read up on it, just repeated the words.

The highest of high maintenance.... The kind of person who's exhausting to be around.... and not in the good way.... I've just realized this about myself, and while I realize I come by it quite naturally, I'm not thrilled with my newfound knowledge.... P.S... did somene hint that you're not easy to be around??? cause I'll punch their lights out...... :-)
