High Maintenance

Ansley Ansley
What do you think qualifies a person as high maintenance? Do you think it is interchangeable with "someone who knows what they want"?

My experience with "high maintenance" is when the person just sucks up as much of your time and attention as possible and then makes you feel guilty if you want to do something else without them.

Yeah, I would agree that the guilt-tripping is the defining characteristic

I think of when you have to practically play parent to them and do everything for them. Just my opinion though, not exactly sure what it really means, but yeah, lol.

I have family members who are very high maintenance. JR pretty much hit it on the head. They want all your time, and they dont care if you are busy taking care of your own family.

JR nailed it. i think anyone who consumes most of your time or else, you suffer their wrath. pretty much anyone who is incredibly selfish and expects to be waited hand and foot

I agree with JR and Ms. Spice. To me it has nothing to do with knowing what they want, it's more related to being selfish and immature and then melting down completely when they don't get their way.

I think of high maintenance as someone who needs a lot of time and attention. Like if you spend all your time working out that person's problems exclusively without an equal back-and-forth. Of course there will be times when one person needs more attention than the other, but if it's constantly the one person taking and the one person giving, that's high maintenance.

No, in my opinion, it is someone who selfishly thinks their 'needs' are higher and more important than anyone else's, who puts their time ahead of others and who also has no regard for living financially or emotionally within their means.

Pretty much this exactly. I've had experience with people like this, so has my husband, so have a lot of my friends. High maintenance people suck to deal with a lot of the time.

That's why we moved to Oregon, one of the reasons is to stay away from our moms and my older sister. My married sister is the worst of them all, expecting my husband to fix something at her place every weekend. The worst case was asking him to adjust their thermometer, I don't understand why her husband can't do it himself, with the manual and all!
