Attention? Why would I want that? I'm perfectly fine being free of prying eyes and expectations. While it also robs me of companions and normal human affection, I prefer to think of it as a "You can't find anything worth mentioning unless you go out of your way". Appropriate, since people have to go out of their ways to even remotely understand me.

I'm a quiet person, reserved. I don't talk much and never liked being given lots of attention by lots of people. I prefer 1-2 people, and I perform best 1 on 1. Due to me being such an introvert, I've never really understood social cues or social politeness.

How I get attention on the rare occasion I want it? Flirt. "Hey, when did you get this cute?" being my favorite line... As cliche as it is.


Flirting always catches my attention, makes me smile and blush and catches me off guard a bit. Good idea though!

I am invisible/phantom-like
I even if I try to get someone's attention, they would be like freaking out, trying to figure out where the voice is coming from

I wanted the attention of the whole school once. I just got permission from my teachers to go class to class giving a speech about gay bullying, GLBT rights, and signing a petition to start a Gay-Straight Alliance club, and I bravely got over my anxiety and gave speeches to multiple classes, unprepared/spontaneously, and got over 300 signatures. I got attention, both negative and positive, from a large portion of my school, for doing that. It was worth it, though. That's the kind of attention I don't mind, because I was standing up for something I believed in. The school was being prejudiced and anti-gay and taking away my right to form a peaceful assembly (club) for positive purposes (ending bullying, helping students come out, day of silence, day of remembrance, etc).

Nothing, attention brings haters, haters bring smart mouths, smart mouths start a fight, ends up ruining my day.

I do like attention from people I like/friends, makes you feel good, but those are the people I usually never get attention from.

The person who got the most attention at my school was this guy who streaked across a major, perhaps homecoming, pep rally. It was awesome. He got in big trouble, but it was so worth it. Everyone was outraged that he couldn't walk across the stage at graduation.

Be a misguided weaboo or otaku who think wearing Naruto headband is a good idea.

Or you can not worry about being a follower of a crowd and be yourself. I assume everyone who wants attention here are still in high school.

Go to school naked?

lol Well, me and my friends are quite the notorious bunch of coconuts, for various reasons. One of them is that me and two other friends came up with this singing choir called the Kaka Poo Poo (I'm Poo #1) And randomly during class we would sing various songs. At first some people found it annoying but eventually we became like a local celebrity unit thing.
We enjoy singing "We're off to see the Wizard! The wonderful Wizard of Oz!" While skipping arm in arm down the hallways.

And of course us being anime, music, videogame, sci-fi, international pop culture geeks people know us for that. And we all have great grades (two of us are at the top of the school)

And one of us is a delinquent. She got suspended 16 times, 8 times in elementary school. She brought a knife to school, watched porn at school, slapped and constantly humiliates our principal, slapped several students, pushed one down the stairs, has a lot of enemies, flashed her vagina to prove some stupid rumors about her having a dick wrong, and has done a lot worse. Seeing all this makes me think that the Catholic School District is way to lenient.

On the other hand I am nicknamed Mother Teresa for apparently being the nicest person they know (they=general school)

While my bestfriend tough and emo and to have a terrible past.

And another one of us is occasionally know as Chris Brown, for having no shame or hesitation to "slap a bitch" (He's a guy)

Or you could act like an openly gay couple with a good friend, I did that once.

And there is only 4 of us.

So in summary, be eccentric, be yourself, don't think too much before you talk, but still think, live to the fullest don't be afraid of ridicule and find a zany group of friends to join and help you. But don't make getting attention your only reason to do so. Make it just having fun.

But don't take this as an okay to become a delinquent and start a gang

You silently shuffle your way on stage, showing no facial expression. And then you grab the microphone, slowly turn your back to the audience and start screaming. Keep doing this for a while.
