Do Tell: When Do You Need the Most Attention?



I know I can be a baby from time to time. I have even been known to throw myself a pity party once or twice before, demanding a little extra TLC from my friends and family right before - say a trip to the dentist - even though it ends up drawing more attention to the inevitable. There is something comforting about having that little extra attention from the ones you love, so ladies, do tell, when do you need the most attention from your boyfriend, your friends, or your family?

PMS. I become such a baby, I cry over anything, which is weird bc I'm not a crier. I just know there is something wrong, can't break the blues, can't get enough hugs and kisses, take offense to everything. Yea, it sux!

When my husband and I haven't had a lot of time alone( I don't mean sex). I will just say "I need some attention." I want to be stroked or have my hair brushed or I just want to be cuddled. Sometimes I get like that for a day during PMS and then the rest of the time it's "stay out of my way". I can feel the level of bi#$h rising in my body!!! I'm not kidding!!! Luckily when I say I need more attention I always get it!

I get needed when I am stressed. Recently (yesterday) I worked 10 hours and had 2 classes. Let's just say I was dead by 8pm. My boyfriend called to see how my day went and I could do was cry. When I am drained like that, all I want is to be snuggled and babied a little. Is that too much to ask for? :( ;)

I really need attention when I'm stressed out over school, or when I'm angry about something. I just need to vent for a good five minutes; if my boyfriend's willing to just listen, then I'm okay.

I need some now. My boyfriend is totally stressed out over school right now, and he called me during the day (while i am at work and can't really do much other than listen) and i heard about his day, how he was feeling, etc. I told him i needed to talk and to call me later when he took a break. Well, I called him around 8, (i still wasn't home yet but figured he had been working straight for 4 hours) anyways, I call, and he sounds like he has so much better to do than listen to me....and even though I was busy with work i took tim eto listen to him...which upset me anymore...so he calls me at 10 and says he wanted to say good night, and the second i started talking more, he says he has to get back to work..being that he hsa been on break for 30 seconds...I don't know. That made everything worse. oh well. I decided to get over myself today since no one has wanted to listen haha.

When I'm sick, or stressed out about something. And I'm a total baby when I'm sick; I'll call my guy to bring me soup, etc. But, when he's sick I dote (even more) on him, so it all works out.

I'm with amybdk:PMS. Case in point: last weekend I almost scared my (sadly long distance) bf away by being needy, he was busy and I was craving attention and, well.. he just couldn't give it to me, which made me even more upset. :(
