The concept of high versus low maintenance first came into the popular culture by way of the movie "When Harry Met Sally." Harry reflected that Sally was the worst kind of person, someone who thinks they are low maintenance but are actually very much high maintenance. As Harry pointed out, high maintenance people love to order things on the side at the restaurant, and they have very particular ways that they like to do things and have things done for them. From Sally's perspective, she just knew exactly what she wanted and wasn't afraid to ask for it very specifically.
This quiz examines the high maintenance question from the perspective of your significant other. You'll answer questions about yourself, but you'll also delve into how your partner might answer specific questions. When it's all said and done, your result will range from "Incredibly High" to "Unbelievably Low" and more moderate points in between. It's really a question of how challenging and complicated the process is to make you happy and meet your needs. If you're the kind of person that goes with the flow and adjusts quickly and relatively easily to changes, there's a good chance your significant other will see you as low maintenance. Take the quiz and let's find out just how flexible and easy-going you are according to the person who is closest to you.
