So, Who is the Attention Whore Among you all?

We all have a friend who thinks that he/she is the centre of the universe and the world revolves around them? Don’t we? And if you can’t think of a friend like that, maybe you are the one!

The attention whore is in all of us. We all need attention sometimes and just love to be the most admired goddess of the group. But most of us can do without getting all that attention all the time. We can do with the few close friends we have without getting compliments for every new buy and haircut.

Who’s the attention whore?

girl-attention

She is the one who puts a new self portrait of hers with her cleavage sticking out (unintentionally, of course) as her profile picture on social forums and facebook. Or who’d put up vague status every second day which you can hardly understand and behave like it’s not meant for all unless everyone pokes and begs her to explain what’s up.

Remember the facebook updates saying “1000 likes if you think this girl is hot”? Well, that’s the extreme kinds, what we are talking about is the less blatant one!

Signs that you are becoming an attention whore

  • Too jealous to accept:

You are way too jealous if you have any competition. You behave like the other girl doesn’t exist for you but the truth is you always keep thinking about how to look better than her.

  • Status update:

You update your status even when there’s nothing new to tell. You’d put up random vague status, quotes, songs or even smiley’s to scream of your existence. You’d not back off from telling people where you are, with whom and what an awesome time you are having when you are not actually having it.

  • New look:

You put up pictures of your new look every week. A new hairstyle, new dress, new bed sheet… anything can be your NEW reason to change profile pictures every day.

  • Wannabe braggart:

Okay, so you have discovered that you are a very emo chick or that your friend is a bitch… you make a big deal out of the pettiest of the affairs. Guess what? No one gives a rat’s ass!

  • Nice to all:

You are super nice to everyone, especially when you meet someone for the first time. But wait it’s not because you are that gentle it’s because you want the other people to think good of you. You may go to extremes for being nice to new people.

  • Boyfriend tales:

You like to update your friends (read everyone) about your heavenly date and shopping sprees with your boyfriend. But what if people are not interested? You are too self obsessed to think of that notion.

  • The centre of the universe:

You feel miserable if you are not the centre of attraction in a group. What you do, wear, eat, visit… all have to be special. If some of your friends make a plan without telling you, you feel shattered.

  • Facebooking problems:

You like to facebook your problems instead of facing them. You’d rather post on the wall what should be in your boyfriend’s inbox. Grow up! Everybody has enough problems of their own and yours are not the universal problems!

  • Guy followers:

You like to talk about how so many guys are stalking you and how you hate it but the best part is you don’t even seem to ignore them. You like it when you get attention from even the most unwanted people.

  • White lies:

You cook up stories about vacations, boyfriends and adventures to make yourself look cool. You constantly have this urge to feel superior to your friends.

  • Sore Loser:

You feel wounded if a guy hits on your friend instead of you. You start to think that the guys needs some sense and he can’t handle you anyway. You’d pretend like it doesn’t matter if your friend is being chosen over you.

  • Fishing for compliments:

You need other people to compliment you for feeling good. You’d dab a lot of makeup, wear a strappy dress and click pictures even when you are not going anywhere. Compliments after all are enough to make your day!

  • Sugar-coated candy:

You exchange lovey dovey messages with people you’ve recently become friends with. Also you are big on mood swings. You get irritated just as someone starts questioning your ways and the next moment you can be all happy and cheery with other people.
