If your partner shows these 10 traits, you’re with a drama king

By | |

Does your partner hog the attention just a little too much? Do you find that your interactions with him drain your energy?

If you answered ‘yes,’ there’s a good chance you’re with a drama king. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. And who knows, the situation could be fixable with a bit of effective communication. 

But like anything, you should have a clear idea of the signs before anything. Fortunately, I’m here to help. In this article, I’ll walk you through the 10 telltale traits of a drama king. Ready to start living drama-free? Let’s get it!  

1) He always needs attention

Here’s the thing: a drama king lives for attention–it’s his drug of choice and he’s hooked.

The drama king might heavily exaggerate stories to get people’s attention–the more eyes on him the better. He tends to interrupt people and bring the floor back to him. 

When conversing with a drama king, it’s easy to tell… he won’t let you get a word in. 

The drama king might overshare on social media too—he’ll post intimate details about your relationship, one too many selfies, and provide frequent unwarranted updates about his day and feelings to his followers. 

Social media may be great in moderation but the drama king uses it excessively as a crutch to satisfy his thirst for attention and validation!

2) He plays the victim

From my experience, drama kings are experts at playing the victim even though they start the conflict in the first place. They like to enjoy the best of both worlds. 

He is cunning in his ways and often gets people to side with him by stretching the truth. 

But this is just the drama king lying to himself and to others. He may be in the wrong but convinces himself and others that he’s innocent.
