Grading comment
Since Henrik suggested more answers I decided to comment to his answer. Teeteez was difficult to translate because it denotes more than you have tried to propose as answers: teeteez is not necessarily attributable to girls, women. Teeteez cam mean both show off and coquettish (though we can't describe a man as coquettish )sometimes frivoulous. AS I have already said it has little negative charge, people use this word often teasingly. So thank you anyway

Explanation:
I think teteez means someone who is very very sensitive to imperfections of this world.
For instance teeteez about food means not willing to eat except the perfectly made food.

I am not aware of any other meaning.
