Are You High or Low Maintenance?
by Zoe Samuel

There are those of us who are downright picky, and there are those of us that couldn't be fussy if we tried! Would being brought the wrong meal in a restaurant send you straight over the edge, or would you politely send it back? Being high maintenance or low maintenance are both great ways to be, but everyone has a different level of standards they need to have fulfilled. 

While your friends might not find you high maintenance, your partner may find you so finicky and demanding that the thought of you being low maintenance would make them laugh! The only way to know for sure where you fall on the scale of neediness is to respond honestly to the questions you are presented. Your personality, the way you react in certain situations, and the way you live your life will go a long way in telling us if you are on the high side or the low side of the maintenance scale!  

Pour yourself a nice glass of wine, and relax into the quiz. Once we know all your little quirks and preferences, we will be able to tell you how others see you. Are you high maintenance or low maintenance? There's only one way to find out!
