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
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).
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...
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
