I Dislike Attention Seekers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 763 People

    I hate girls who post a pic of themselves

    and say they're ugly to get attention. I can totally relate to low-self esteem and lack of confidence, but there's a line that is drawn between genuine lack of self-confidence and attention seekers.

    Some people around me would like nothing more

    than every one around them taking the responsabilities to save them from themselves, while being unnerved to be asked the same by those they love. I am not a god, but a simple human with limits.

    Drawing It Away

    Attention seekers irk me.  My main reason is that while they're hollering, demanding the attention of everyone in sight, quiet ones who need something fall by the wayside.A couple weeks ago, I was sitting with a girl who is incredibly quiet.  I mean, Una is barely able to speak...

    There was this girl in my school.

    . she did all sorts for attention. Once she rung the fire alarm. She wasnt in my class but she was always in trouble when I saw her. Laughing at the teachers while they shouted at her, mimicking them in a funny voice. Then she told everyone that she was a lesbi.an. She told me...

    I see this more and more on Youtube.

    Totally Self-absorbed...

    I know we all like attention at times but some of the authors of EP stories, confessions, questions, etc. are truly some of the most self-absorbed people I have ever seen. I was reading a few stories of some very popular, sexual EP women to my fiancée. Some of it is very...

    It's Sickening

    Alot of the time they don't care about how you are. Or when they want to kill themselves they get all sorts of attention that gets them out of it. But as soon as it starts fading away they're back at it again. What is the point. You either want to or not. I'm not trying to be...

    everyone wants attention

    I don't see the point in having to be the centre

    or attention why? I get some people may have some issues and crave attention but when people lie about things to get sympathy or to ruin someone else's moment that's too far in my opinion?

    They enjoy it even more,

    when they see that there is someone who is annoyed by them. They must think that all the negative feedback they get stems from jealousy, but the truth is something very different: They are just provoking personalities who gain sympathy by telling sweet lies to week and vain...

    Generally everyone likes attention

    since its human nature. And you have every legal right to get it however you want as long as it does not physically harm another no consensual person. However, I also have the right to judge and criticize you for purposefully seeking out attention. Deal with it.

    Major Turn Off

    I just read on the side of my computer screen: "What is a major turn off in any person you meet?" Well I'd say it would be PRIDE AND EGO. Now attention wh0res have this irritating tendency to only speak about themselves, and their great (if not divine powers) and how special they...

    It's incredibly annoying.

    They know that they do it, but nonchalantly play it off and act it as being playful. Women are terribly bad at it. "Oh, i'm not beautiful, no one loves me, there's no guy out there" (posts half nude pic) Yup..

    Definitely

    Everyone wants attention every now and then, but there's always those people who have to be in the spotlight 24/7. I have no problem giving everyone attention here and there, but when I can't get a word in or you need the attention it drives me insane.

    getting attention. Yeah sometimes people try to get attention in the wrong ways but still. People don't really choose to like attention just like people don't choose to be shy, it's just your personality. If someone likes being the life of the party, why won't you just let them...
