Their parents didn't pay them enough attention when they were young. They haven't learnt the social skills to deal with people, so still have a 5 year old's tantrums.
The NEED for ATTENTION
Just frustrated attention seekers.
personally, I hate when some girls like to over-exaggerate things/demanding-ness/control freaks and blow them out of proportion.
How about drama kings which are worse.
Boredom, lonely, power hungry, manipulative, vindictive. Ask a vague question, and you get a vague answer.
They're narcissistic, and want sympathy
The awkward juxtaposition of turd and sphincter!
Want of attention...doesn't matter to them if it's positive or negative as long as it's attention.
Love of drama. There's nothing like a good rage-quit :o)
