So, from the responses so far on the thread, I think it's more accurate to say that men like H.M. women; they just don't like shelling out money for the maintenance.
When you're dating a woman; no, you should not have to pay a penny for her physical upkeep.
But if you marry such a gal, then beauty products and treatments are part of the household budget. And if you want to walk around with that beautiful doll on your arm; it doesn't make sense to complain about the extra hour-and-a-half it took her to make herself look that way.
I feel there are different variations of high maintenance... aren't we all in some ways or another ??
This is one area...the rich man can easily afford these types so I doubt they would mind at all...while they much appreciate the feminine benefits...
This doesn't mean us lower income women wouldn't care though... I have to say... I care a great deal about my looks.. I think even more so now that I am getting older, I'll be 50 tomorrow! Let the "Over the hill" wishes begin.. oh that was 10 yrs ago..
I care to look my best.... I want my husband to be turned on by ME.. I want "flirtation" and sex vibes in the air between us... I don't care how old we are.. It's just more FUN this way... makes me feel more alive, vibrant and young somehow... I love my dresses, my heels, some make up... putting on lingerie for him, French maid outfits, the hot Nurse.. Ebay's got some great deals... .so I save here over expensive mall shops..etc... also I'd never pay to get my nails done...or the high cost pampering some women do, any time I see a thread like that.. I'm one of the naysayers -that I'd never waste my money....
But still.. I paint my nails...love when he gives me a foot massage...we pamper ourselves.....
Something about longer hair on girls / on a woman... I know my husband wants that, he frowns on short hair.....but I love it too!!...even as a kid, when my step mother cut my hair short at age 9.. I looked at her like she was the wicked witch of the West... I hated her for doing that !!
If I love a product, a certain outfit I want....if it's on the more expensive side... I will scour the internet to find the best deal to be had...I want the most bang for my buck..
So not high maintenance here (money wise)..... I would say I'm more high maintenance in: Wanting to be with my guy & he better give me lots of lovin' & sex..
I don't take a lot of time in the bathroom either.. Many a times I am dressed, ready to go while I am waiting on our sons even.. I've told them there is something very wrong with that picture.
