Default High Maintenance isn't just about the "physical" person

Being described as "high maintenance" is really about the inner workings of the person's mental attitudes. The discussions here seem to have gone off on a tangent about the way people present or maintain their physical selves - but I describe a person as "high maintenance" when they require a lot of relationship-energy but don't respond meaningfully, recipricate or "get it" at all - the kind of person that is so difficult to be yourself with that you just tend to give up eventually.
