    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...

    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?

    I see this more and more on Youtube.

    People who go onto videos and ask people to like and subscribe to them when they have one video, no avatar or backdrop to tell me who they are and they don't have anything in their playlists. It bothers me even more when these people start video highjacking!! For those that don...

    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...

    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.

    Why do some people constantly crave attention?

    Were they perhaps spoiled only children who are so used to having all eyes on them that they think the rest of the world wants them to be their focus? Or perhaps they were one of many siblings who had to perform in order to be acknowledged. Most likely they are victims of...

    I don't understand why it's a bad thing to like

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
