    What's wrong with me?

    I'm not insecure (I don't think) but everytime I go out.. I end up being the centre of attention. Yes in voluptuous but why do I constantly feel the need to dance on everyone or get noticed.. Time for change.. 2014 new year.. Old habits will die hard

    Don't we all secretly crave attention? Isn't that why we are here on EP? Even the shy people who post, like me, like attention in some ways. Do you agree?
