About This Quiz

If you are a guy and you are dating a high maintenance woman, you might complain about how difficult it can be from time to time, but the fact is that a lot of guys want nothing more than to date a woman that is high maintenance. Why? Well, it's simple. There is something to be said for a woman that cares a lot about her life and how she looks and wants nothing but the best, both from herself and from her partner. 

On the other hand, a lot of guys don't want anything to do with someone who is high maintenance, because let's face it, there is also something to be said for being a woman who is totally mellow and laid back.

As a girlfriend, it isn't like you really want to be totally needy and consumed by your appearance, but if you are, whose problem is it really? Certainly not yours. The issue isn't so much whether you are high maintenance or not; it is more whether or not you know that you are. What we are saying is if you are low maintenance, good for you, the man in your life can thank you, but if you are high maintenance, then you might as well own it and wave that flag as high as you can. 

Take this quiz to find out. As soon as you have time, that is. No pressure. Your boyfriend can wait.
