I wouldn't call Dug low maintenance, because you have had to do a lot of work to get him to support you emotionally the way you need it sometimes. It does not come naturally to him to give you what you naturally want, so you've had to talk and sometimes fight or beg him for that attention. If he was truly low maintenance, you wouldn't have ever had to do those things, either.
That is an interesting way of looking at it.
In fact, some women would consider the steps you've had to take to get him to give you the emotional support you need to be way too high of a maintenance job to do to keep a guy would might give up.
Hey, I am liking this response better and better.
Dug, watch your maintenance needs, buddy!
OTOH, there are really so many men who will keep up a constant line of desire for their wife, regardless of her mood or weight (within reason), and we hear from them a lot, too. I don't think it is that uncommon for a man to feel about his wife (and would agree this is a low maintenance man in that sense, one who desires their wife without her having to "do" anything).
That could be. It is the ones who seem much higher maintenance who stand out to me, I guess, as they are so different from Dug.
I think what we need and want out of relationships that personally fulfills us is very different, person to person, woman to woman, man to man. I personally wouldn't want a man who wanted me "no matter what", because I would feel this is completely impersonal and that it is just a reflection of his natural sex drive and nothing to do with me specifically. I want to be specifically wanted (and I want to want my man specifically).
That is an interesting thought, that it is impersonal.
I don't think it describes Dug, though. I think he loves me, specifically, very much. He just is not picky about it.
