High Maintenance/Low Maintenance?

I've heard these terms tossed around about other people... I think I'm low maintenance...but wonder if there are advantages to being difficult and wanting a lot from other people.

What are the advantages of being high maintenance?

There are no advantages to being high-maintenance. You torment yourself and drive people away. Of course, high-maintenance people have a tendency to think they are low-maintenance.

I've never really known but I suspect I'm somewhere in the middle. I don't spend a ton on myself but enough to keep me from aging gracefully.

i always thought high maintenance was someone who expects people to cater to/wait for them. who take 2 hours to get ready, are always late to wherever they need to be and thinks everything should be as they want it.
according to this definition, i am low maintenance.

I consider the wives of a few men I know to be high maintenance. The advantages I see is that they get their way in everything, get anything they want that is affordable and they dont have to do any dirty work.

I wasn't aware of any advantages to being high maintenance. Perhaps I should change my maintenance status from low to high....hmmmmm.
