When you're wanting some attention, how do you get it?

*takes a deep sigh*

^That's kinda how I try to get attention. It works all the time. When I sigh, my friends and some family members are like "what now?" or "What's up?"

I do absolutely nothing different from my normal activities; apparently my typical mannerisms always come about as something being wrong. If I'm doing something out of the ordinary, then something's really wrong or horribly right.

If I want someone's attention, I just stare them down. People love that.

Depends on who it is. If it's Tom I'll just rub his arm or back or something so he knows that I want his attention and when he has a second he should look my way.

Generally if someone's busy though I don't try to get their attention. I'm shy like that.

I'll fish for it if it's something online. Either by whining and being annoying while withholding information so someone will take the bait and ask (hopefully I don't do this often, though) or like keyboard spamming and sending a link so they'll click it asap since it obviously got me excited about something. :P In real life, I'll just say something.

I usually make act more childish and make my voice shrill or something when I speak. Oh, acting clumsy works, too.

If I wanted to be noticed/attention I'd stared blankly at them until I got what I want.

I usually just ask- say something like "I'd like to spend more time with you" or "Let's do something fun together" or show them something funny to laugh and start more of a conversation. Like "Which one do you get? http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Random "

If I'm sad, I'll sit there in a corner in silence with a somber expression on my face. I'm usually very talkative around people I know, so when I'm quiet like that, they know something is wrong.
Otherwise, I don't really seek attention.

irl, I just keep tapping the shoulder of the person that I am wanting to talk to. If it's online, I used to whine and complain until I got attention, but now, I probably say "Here's something important that needs to be said!"

I don't really do anything if I want attention. I just proceed as usual and wait for people to pay attention to me. Which explains why I get very little of it. xD;

I used to like... spam the IRC and get over-hyper or whatever but that's not productive and I really can't be bothered to do that kind of thing.

I usually make a very sarcastic and/or hilarious/weird comment or action. Most of the times it works, because I'm just that awkward and out of place, so it's cool. People like being around me because of that I guess, but I don't particularly like that :P

This is what I do. Put in mind that I live in a hardcore liberal state and they are mostly idiots here. Illinois. What I do is yell, "Fuk Obama!" Oh boy do I piss ppl off.

I'm not really an attention seeker....even at school I'm very quiet. But to catch attention I raise my voice or make noise.

I'll admit, if it's the attention of a cute girl who I know I won't likely get, I do stupid crazy stuff. I.e. flipping, climbing trees, very very bad parkour.

If it's just of a friend, I won't go that nuts. I'll just start talking about whatever and viola.
