An attention whore is anyone who is desperate for attention and do anything, including degrading or humiliating themselves to get it. Usually have low self esteem and absolutely no respect for themselves. Typical examples are girls in school that suck dick to get guys to like them and then act surprised when guys treat them like shit and girls call them hoes, and high and middle school girls that willingly pass out nudes and porn of themselves to get idiotic and phony compliments like "you're so hot". Most attention whores know how pathetic they are but are always willing to sacrifice what little dignity they have left for attention.
Damn, look at Hannah giving out nudes of herself all over school. What a pathetic attention whore.

aka Man Collector-, a woman who accumulates a lot of male friends in order to be constantly showered with attention and admiration. No man is off limits to an attention whore, including boyfriends and spouses of her own friends. The attention whore will make up inane reasons to text, call or have a conversation with a man that she feels is not giving her the attention she feels she should have and will escalate this behavior if this attention is going to another woman, even a man’s own girlfriend or spouse. She will not ask for anything, however, she will moan and complain about something until a man offers to help or give her what she wants. However, there is no way any of these men would ever make it beyond the friend stage or ever engage in sexual activity with this woman. The attention whore’s own boyfriend or spouse is usually the one man who is immune to her charms and attention seeking behavior. The attention whore does not have many female friends, either due to her actions towards their signifigant others, or because she feels that they take attention from her, although she will claim she doesn’t understand why.
The attention whore wears high heels to a football game so men will help her up and down the bleachers.
