The two most notable characteristics of high-maintenance people: they are difficult to please and easy to disappoint. Other identifiable traits are their constant whining, complaining, pouting, sulking, irritability and downright negative behavior.  These people don't really extend love and appreciation. At best, it's a tease. At worst, it's a conscious manipulation.

记得电影《当哈利遇见萨莉》有一幕,Meg Ryan只点了一道沙拉,所以说自己是low maintenance,省心省钱好伺候,但她实际上imposes  10 diff conditions on  the salad. That really makes her 'high maintenance'.
