The Drama King

"Drama Queen" is often a term attributed to a woman who is thought to:

a/ Crave drama
b/ Crave attention.

Women are often generalized into this category as it's often said that all women love drama.

I, however, disagree.

Some women are happy living a quiet, tranquil life. That doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy the odd pleasant surprise here and there, that just means she doesn't want to unnecessarily complicate her life.

Conversely, I've found that men love drama perhaps, just as much. Men enjoy gossip as much as women do (shh.... we won't tell or judge you), and some seek the same attention as these so called Drama Queens. Hence, I propose to you the "Drama King".

The Drama King wants to be the center of attention, whether it be with is male buddies or female acquaintances. Many people think of this male as an only child because of his need for attention, but he could also be a neglected or forgotten child (often a middle child or the "mistake" child). No matter how happy his life is, he seeks complication as he feels this makes him feel alive, important, and cared about.

Some find the Drama King's personality attractive - often, the so-called Drama Queen. So... next time you go to judge a person's "drama need", think back and think:
  • Who doesn't like a little attention from time to time?

  • Should you hate this person or feel sorry for them?

  • Lastly, is this a gender attribute? I think not...
