I Hate Attention Seekers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 284 People

    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...

    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...

    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'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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
