I Hate Attention Seekers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 466 People

    I've come to loathe Facebook some days.

    There are a few people I've deleted because I can't stand their incessant need to receive attention from their posts and photos. I understand that Facebook and social media is a narcissistic platform for our personal accomplishments, but I am sick of seeing people gleaning...

    Attention seekers don't get my attention on EP.

    Lots of people on EP tend to attack other members. Rather than attacking you for attacking me, I'll simply ignore you. The fact you attack me says much about your persona. Some post ridiculous things or give others attention. Not worth my giving attention. Good day.

    First off, I'm not that black

    and white on the subject, a lot of us here are, HOWEVER! Can I please get more than a "who wants to F me?" Or "would you --- me?" Like c'mon! Really? No story to go with it or fantasy sharing? If you're asking strangers on here if they would just DO you of course the answer is...

    So Many Making Good Guys Go Bad.

    On so many social sites and dating site I see so many girls and women that will say anything for attention. They will post at least 5 selfies per day just to feed their ego. They act like they are deep or an intellectual and comment on a geeky thing when they have a profile pic...

    Rant. Nothing enrages me more

    than overemotional kids claiming to have depression social anxiety OCD or any kind of mental disorder that is self diagnosed. I'm sorry I don't fall for the whole "I cut myself" routine. That's really low for people to do that. If you make your 'suicidal' thoughts public, show...

    I hate when people act fake just to get

    attention. I just came across the worst post ever about a bj and I'm sitting here thinking why. Why would someone want attention so much that they wouldn't care if it came from a bunch of pervs and creeps? And then they say stuff like "you're beautiful" to her and I'm like what...

    I don't know who. But it has to be someone

    familiar with "the group". People take time out of their short lifespan to make a new EP account to write bad things about some of the EP members. Some EP members who's names I won't mention, make accounts calling out their names. I know because I've done it twice before...

    Really..how Embarassing

    The lengths some people will go, to be noticed amazes me. They are so self absorbed in most everything they do they've got to be selfish also. Twisting simple conversations so then the spot light is on them. ME ME ME ME...drives me nuts. Well you know what? I've turned that spot...

    I really wish I had meaningful experiences to

    write. But I'm an attention seeker... I just want to be noticed every once in a while. I'm ashamed to admit it, because I know it's bad even though I don't know why. But right now I really don't care what you want to think about me.. I'm an attention seeker.

    That Girl.

    I know a specific girl in my school. The kind that wouldn't admit to being an attention seeker, but oooooh man is she ever...she'll play humble and sweet, then ***** and gossip. This was my best friend. I was her older sister by a year, through friendship. Throughout middle...

    There are two different type of people.

    Ones who naturally attract attention and ones who go out of their way to get it. I am a natural. It is because of my personality, demeanor and attitude. But the seeker is who frustrates me. My boyfriend is divorced from a seeker. I find myself becoming more irritated by her...

    You know what I'm talking about.

    ... those people who ask " Do you think I'm attractive?". NEWS FLASH! Its called SELF esteem for a reason!! You're not going to feel good about yourself just because a bunch of horny, bored, immature guys say you're a gorgeous piece of meat! YOU have to KNOW, AND BE CONFIDENT...

    Why send me a message saying 'I hate you'

    and then block me straight away? The same person who sent me a picture of a blade against his wrist and a picture of a handful of pills. It makes me quite sad how messed up some people on here are. There should maybe trained professional therapists on here? So many people...
