Today, during class, a girl had suggested how I, a 16 year-old guy, would be a high maintenance girlfriend. We sat and debated this, allowing for other people to listen in and agree with her, and eventually the entire class agreed with her. Even the teacher. FML

I feel like a high maintenance girlfriend would complain about being called that and post on FML to make it seem like they are being attacked

Well, would you be a high maintenance girlfriend? Also that sounds like a chill relaxed environment. Take it as a joke and laugh about it. (:

Well if the entire class agrees then there might be some truth there.

I don't think there's anything wrong with being high maintenance, and just because someone's high maintenance doesn't equate to them also being dramatic and/or always playing victim. Being high maintenance doesn't have to be taken as an insult lol

I'm always called high maintenance, by my boyfriend and his and my friends too, but I honestly don't mind. It's not really an insult, just a comment on my lifestyle.

Being called high maintenance is not a compliment.

Depends who is saying it. I know several people, who like high maintenance SOs for various reasons, and often feel that high maintenance SOs are a bragging point. Personally, I prefer (both for myself and my SO) high maintenance, but self maintaining (aka, likes to put a lot of work into themselves, but doesn't expect other to do it for them).

As you can read from my comment, I never really used the word "compliment", I mentioned it as a "comment". There's a difference :)

Being high maintenance is NOT ever a complement. Being high maintenance does not mean taking care of yourself, or putting time into his you look. It means having to put a lot of effort into keeping said person happy such as more complements than usual, more expensive gifts, more dramatic, ect...

I am curious about her side of the debate

Don't stress OP! Just take it with a grain of salt..

If you were willing to argue it with so many people, you only proved their point

It is an option for OP to just STFU, find the nearest empty corner, and cry in it instead of arguing. That would also further their suspicions, however. OP can't win, really.

Sure the OP could win by going "haha yeah you're probably right" and changing the subject.

...then I suppose they would all collectively sigh and slowly go about their business.

in Holland we have a saying "better to be spoiled than to be neglected" so what you are you, there's probably some jealousy going on there aswell

I'm Dutch and can't think of any saying like that, how do you say it in Dutch?

Yay Dutchies!

If it was a rather calm and civil debate, and they all agree with the other girl, combined with the fact that you've complained about it on here, seems to ring true to me.

Only high maintenance people bitch about what other call them.

Throw a bitch-fit. See how they like it.
