I Am Not High Maintenance

    Giggles...Me? High Maintenance!

    I am in no way complicated or high maintenance. I am probably as simple as it gets and maybe too much so. I don't like taking too much time for my looks. I think natural and less is more and I don't need all the bells and whistles to feel good. I actually do not feel like myself...

    I am probably one of the very few teenage girls

    who don't require much at all.

    I'm not the girl at the bar.

    The one who has heels on and a little black dress. With my hair all done up. Sipping on a drink with her friends. Eyeing the girl out dancing and having herself a good time. All by herself. I'm not prim and proper. I'm not prissy. I usually wear my hair in a pony tail. You'll...

    Less and Less ...

    I do enjoy cosmetics and beauty treatments but it doesn't really bother me if I don't wear make-up.  I will get a professional manicure or pedicure, waxing or the odd facial, but it's not an essential ritual.  Going out without make-up really doesn't bother me and I don...

    Have no desire for wealth

    or riches. I can take or leave luxuries. I've no 'need this to be happy'. Just give me your time. Your thoughts. Your honesty.

    I like to think of myself

    as pretty low maintenance. I don't wear expensive clothes, the most makeup I wear is mascara and I prefer giving presents to receiving them. The only thing I ask of a girl is to give me their love and their heart. If I get those two things then i'm the happiest person in the...

    Misunderstanding

    I think a lot of people misunderstand the actual meaning of the word and think anyone who uses make up or likes to do their hair up is automatically high maintenance. For me that is not the case. While I do like to do my make up my nails, I'm not expecting ANYONE else to either...

    I am not high maintenance.

    I think women that slave over their looks are ridiculous. The only time a woman has to fix herself completely if of she's going to an event, party or date. I'm not saying that she has to not look and smell good but she doesn't have to spend hours fixing herself. I know a woman...

    hours to get ready, and then there's me. My showers are a max of 20-30 mins, and then like 10 mins to put on clothes. When im done, sometimes i take a nap. It's ridiculous

    Not me, I am quite girly

    but not too much! My idea of a perfect first date is having a laugh, going to the beach or for a walk, having a smoke and a giggle - it's the best way to get to know someone and it's fun! Not into expensive meals and all that, it's a waste of money! I like looking nice, but...

    I don't get some girls.

    ... put a ton of make up on and crap, then some girls have tight dresses and very high heels. For me little to no make up is natures way. Fitting dresses and good pair of flats.

    Short, sweet,and simple.

    Thats me. No mind games, super high expectations or standards, or crazy jealousy tactics. I'm not weak or desperate I just don't like the way "relationships" are these days.It could all be so simple but people would rather make it hard.

    I am a simple girl. I like companionship

    but am independent. I love affection but am not clingy. I don't need to be taken care of and I don't require a lot of attention. Though it doesn't hurt to be attended to every one in a while!

    If I didn't have damn dark circles under my

    eyes, I wouldn't wear any make up at all. It's nice to feel beautiful in my own skin. I own 3 pairs of shoes, hate fancy jewelry and name brand everything. I get my hair done like once a year and only go to a salon if I'm going to be in a wedding.

    Of course I do not have an overwhelming scent, but he naturally can smell me quite strongly. We are usually nudists except when we are cuddling with each other (he is a little too ravenous to take things as slow as I want). If we had children, I probably would not be over their...
