    I Know It's Not All About Me...

    I try not to be a selfish person and I would do anything for my friends.  But I have a craving that is never satisfied.  I need men to look at me, touch me, want me.  My life has been filled with wonderful boyfriends and a loving husband, but I still feel the...

    Look At Me...don't Look At Me...love Me...don't Love Me

    My friends see me as this beautiful smart confident person, but really I just want their attention and I can't believe a word they say.  I have serious trust issues and can't get close, but all that I think about is how much I want to be close to someone.  I chase...

    I Feel Invisible

    Sometimes.. all I want is just a little bit of attention. I just want someone to listen to what I have to say and get me to talk to them. I always feel like people ignore me... when I say something or type something it just seems like people don't care at all. I just want...

    Didn't Notice It Until Recently.

    It seems like whenever someone else gets attention I feel angry and ignored and...I feel like nothing. My mom says I've always been like this. She says its probably half the reason I do theater and chorus: for the attention I get (which I don't think I believe). I've done so many...

    I crave attention from the opposite sex.  I never got it when I was younger from all the neighborhood cuties.  My father was 6 states away. Don't get me wrong I had my fair share of boyfriends.  But being called ugly most of your life you start to believe that. My...

    Any of my exes and friends can confirm,

    the moment you decide to ignore my text message is the moment your contact gets deleted . I don't like that . I don't play that . If you want me, you'll make time to call me, text me, come get me, etc. It's called courtship and loyalty. I have Bipolar disorder and if I'm too...

    So Damn Needy!

    It stems from a feeling of life long rejection.  I've always been an outcast, living on the outer fringe.  Thankfully, at this point in my life, I've learned to embrace this aspect of my personality. However, the lingering effect of my past is an overwhelming fear of...

    And just want to be smothered in love

    and affection, but I really hate that about myself. I understand why Im this way, and it cant be changed. But I dont want to be weak, or needy; I want to be strong and independent. Thats why I ignore the craving and overindulge in others. Like chocolate and baths.

    The Overwhelming Desire to Be the object of Everyones Affection

    I always have had someone chasing me. Married, single, whatever my situation, men and women. Now it isnt that way. Not that it is a bad thing, really. I was just used to all the attention all the time. It is a hard adjustment to make. The feeling of being wanted by so many can be...

    Don't Get It

    I don't get that I do crave attention, but once I do get it I don't believe it.  That they are just kidding around, or something.  Of course I get attention from my fiancee but even with him its not enough or he's just saying it.  I can't take a compliment.

    I secretly crave attention.

    I was bullied and neglected most of my life. I crave genuine attention. Someone that's taking an interest into me, not just tellin me in pretty or that they like me. Someone that is curious how my day went. Someone that can open up to me without fear. Someone I can open up to...
