A low maintenance girl is the exact opposite of a high maintenance girl. What’s the difference? The high maintenance girl needs full-on attention, lavish gifts and praise, and just about every part of your energy to be expended in her direction. The low maintenance girl is the anti-thesis.
A low maintenance girl doesn’t need to take two hours to get ready, she figures you like the way she looks, or you don’t. She won’t require that you skip boy’s night because she needs you to be at her beck and call. She isn’t someone who passes you a “to-do” list a mile long.

Often, you look at what is inside to see the amount of maintenance a girl needs. If you spot the traits and characteristics, you probably stand in the midst of someone who needs very little from you to maintain herself.
