Low-maintenance = low drama.
High-maintenance girls. They always seek to be the center of attention, take days to get ready for a quick trip, and absolutely MUST have the finer things in life — even if it's just body soap. She can be a nightmare if you don't like waiting around for other people, or a blessing if you enjoy tending to someone's every need.
But low-maintenance girls? They're a rare breed who would much rather focus on the important things in life: love, having fun, and spending time with those around them.
So, gentlemen, if you ever have the pleasure of coming across a low-maintenance woman, take her off the dating market and put a ring on it ... immediately!
Seriously, she's the rarest gem, and here's why:
1. She prefers spending the night in, rather than a night on the town.
While she appreciates an occasional night out with her girlfriends, she'd much rather do something low-key. Order in Chinese and watch a romantic comedy on Netflix. Hey, as long as she's spending time with you.
2. Drama isn't in her vocabulary.
This is not the kind of girl who steals other people's spotlight. Low-maintenance girls don't crave attention and don't expect to be put on a pedestal. She doesn't need all eyes on her, just yours.
3. Indecision is a HUGE turn-off.
She doesn't care which brand of sliced cheese you pick up from the grocery store. Just pick one already.
4. Makeup doesn't even rank in the top 20 on her list of priorities.
Perhaps she enjoys testing out her lipsticks and eyeshadow, but she doesn't consider makeup a must. She can easily take a quick trip to the grocery store or coffee shop, no problem.
And if she does use makeup, it's a quick mascara application and she's set. If her makeup smudges, it doesn't really matter; she'll end up wiping it off anyway.
5. Her toiletries are all store brand, not top-shelf.
Shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and face wash. Maybe she occasionally uses that fancy body creme from France, but for the most part, she's content with drug store brand. It all does the same thing, right? Plus, she's saving major money.
6. She likes the simple things in life.
Getting her a diamond necklace is waaaay too over-the-top. She appreciates the thought you put into a gift, not the monetary value behind it. She's genuinely grateful for what she has but, of course, a spa day doesn't hurt, either.
7. She's ready in, literally, 10 minutes or less.
That's probably faster than YOU take to get ready.
8. Sweatpants and baggy shirts are essential.
Maybe she owns some nice jeans and blouses, but you'll probably find her in sweatpants, leggings, or flowy dresses that don't take long to put on. Call it bohemian chic if it makes you feel better.
9. She's easy to please.
Being with her is a piece of cake. She doesn't require constant pampering or attention, she's flexible when things don't go her way, and she's a "go with the flow" type of girl.
10. But just because she's chill doesn't mean you're exempt from working on the relationship.
Even though she doesn't ask for much, that's no reason for you to slack! Since she gives you a break on 90% of things, you better pull through on the 10% of times she needs you. And that doesn't mean you should cut back on the romance, either.
She may be low-maintenance, but she's not a fool.
