I Dislike Attention Seekers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 503 People

    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...

    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.

    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.

    This Girl Is Craaazy

    I met this girl in Jr. high school. She was cool and I could tell her almost anything. She became a friend to me and always had my back. We became so close, that whenever I switched schools because I was expelled once...so did she. I never expected her to become...

    I see this more and more on Youtube.

    Feeling Sorry For Herself!

    Who does like them? They put out question

    after question usually same ones everyday. They need to be seen to have friends yet rarely actually message them as that would not be seen in the public part of ep.

    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...

    The attention seekers.  Sometimes they drive me insane, sometimes I just try to ignore them, in the end, I always want to help them though.  There is a reason why people act the way they do.  Obviously if someone's deseparate for attention, it's because they didn...

    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...
