10 Benefits Of Being A Low Maintenance Woman

As woman, we’re often stereotyped as high maintenance creatures who take hours to get ready to go anywhere and wouldn’t dare set foot outside the house without full makeup. Well, we’re not all like that. Some of us are actually very low maintenance and we have a plenty of good reasons to love being exactly who we are.

  1. We can sleep in because it only takes us 15-20 minutes to get ready in the morning. When we see someone get up two hours early to do their hair and makeup, it makes us laugh and roll our eyes a little bit. We have our morning routine down to a science, so we can enjoy the extra sleep and still leave the house looking and feeling beautiful.
  2. We feel pretty without makeup. We see our natural beauty, so we don’t require makeup in order to feel beautiful. We wear it for some occasions, but sometimes we’ll spent entire days bare-faced and entirely happy with ourselves.
  3. We save money because we don’t care about name brands. We buy clothes and accessories that are cute, high quality and affordable; we don’t pay attention to name brands or labels. If other people aren’t impressed because we’re not wearing enough labels, we give zero f*cks.
  4. We can find cute underwear at stores besides Victoria’s Secret. We do think Victoria’s Secret has nice stuff, but $35 for a bra? Really? We can find stuff that’s just as cute at Wal-Mart or Target at a fraction of the cost. We’ll never resort to granny panties to save money, but we will shop at stores some would consider to be inferior.
  5. We can go to a bar in jeans and a t-shirt and still feel cute. We realize our natural beauty, and we know that we don’t need a fancy outfit to look good. Anyone who thinks we’re not trying hard enough when we go casual isn’t our type, so we really don’t care about their opinions.
  6. We attract the good guys and repel the douchebags. The kind of guy who likes a low maintenance woman is usually really chill and down to earth, which is exactly what we’re looking for. We want nothing to do with shallow douchebags, and, thankfully, they usually want nothing to do with us either.
  7. We have more time for actual hobbies/interests. While others are busy worrying about keeping up with the red carpet trends, we’re spending our time developing our intellectual interests and enjoying our hobbies. We know there’s more to life than clothes, makeup and shoes, because material things don’t create true happiness.
  8. We see people from the inside out. When we meet someone, whether it’s a potential friend or a potential partner, we look past their appearance/possessions and go straight to their soul because that’s where true value lies. Because of this, we’re able to determine pretty quickly if someone has what it takes to be in our lives long-term.
  9. We’re cheap dates in the best possible way. We’re simple, so we don’t require fancy dinners at expensive restaurants or pricey gifts. We’d much rather spend a simple evening sipping wine, cuddling under the stars, and talking about life.
  10. We never need reassurance that we’re awesome and beautiful. While some women fish for compliments to make themselves feel better, we hold our heads up with the ultimate confidence. We know that we’re beautiful and awesome and that any man would be lucky to have us, so he doesn’t need to affirm any of those things for us. Our confidence makes us sexy and we know it.
