the attention whore BLOW OFF

We all have that friend.  The one that needs to have all eyes on them.  Especially when it comes to members of the opposite sex.  Say what you will about dudes, but sometimes I think they are better than us females at the whole "wingman" thing.  Some girls don't know how to be a wing-woman without completely taking over.  And some (the truly evil breed) are more amped to flirt with a guy if they know their friends are into them.  Oh, yes-- they are THAT girl.

I once knew a "that girl" in college.  Let's call her Hannah.  She was the kind of girl that all men fawned over.  She was petite with long blonde hair and a bubbly personality.  She could sing and play guitar.  She loved yoga.  She was pretty much every man's wet dream.  And she had a tendency to flirt with every guy any of us liked.  It almost felt like she was doing it on purpose.  So, one day we decided to test out our theory.  We set the bitch up.

Enter Mike.  A cute guy we were all friends with who had a crush on Hannah and thought we were way off about her.  We decided to prove him wrong.  One of us girls, let's call her Jessica, told Hannah that she had just started to have a huge crush on Mike.  Then, when a bunch of us were hanging out on the balcony overlooking the quad, Mike and Jessica walked by with their arms around each other-- all totally fake and purely for the purposes of Hannah seeing them.   CUT TO: we're all hanging out in a dorm room together.  And Hannah is suddenly on Mike like white on rice.  Like, she was all over him. Telling him how cute he was, giving him a massage, giggling at all his jokes.  It was a win-win for all of us.  We got to prove our point to Mike and he got to flirt with the girl he had a crush on.  But after that, none of us told Hannah when we liked someone.  It was just too dangerous.  She'd go after them.  In fact, she ended up dating a guy for a year that Jessica had a thing for and had made the mistake of telling Hannah about before the Mike Experiment.

So, if you've read this and you suspect you might be "that girl"-- please, stop the insanity.  There's enough attention and boys to go around for everyone.

P.S. Thanks to one of our loyal readers for giving us the idea for this post!

  2. Love this!!! I do feel like "those girls" have rampant insecurity issues (who doesn't) and this is how it manifests itself, but it's still annoying.
