If I hear this term one more time, ugh.... I'm 36, well-educated, got a good paying job (I make as much if not more than most men around here), cook, clean, cut and weedeat my own yard and have no kids. When I get done working on the weekends I'll usually treat myself. True enough, I have a large collection of nice handbags. I also have nice collections of lingerie and jewelry, all of which I purchased MYSELF. I went the other day for a pedicure after I finished with cutting the grass and doing the weedeating and planting and weeding the flowerbeds. To some, this makes me "high maintenance". To me, it doesn't. It's only high maintenance if I come to expect it AND if I want someone else to pay for it. To me, high maintenance is how much attention (time) and money you require to sustain the lifestyle you've come to expect. I expect NOBODY else to fund my excursions to shop, have a pedicure, or anything else. So what say you men? What is the definition of "high maintenance"?
