One who desires attention at the most reprehensible, improper, gauche moments. He/she may wear clothing to appear as though he/she is different from the rest, (could be) spending money loosely, as their pockets permit. This individual may also publicly proclaim their emotions through verbal outbursts, timebomb characteristics, physical rage (i.e. striking any physical object nearby), or weeping in embarassment. These "striking" individuals love flirtation, physical stunts, maybe dancing, piercings, tight clothing (for females), big bling (for men), loud cars, Nike Dunks, the "underground" scene" and more.

Attention whores are not that bad, they may even give reparations to others but somehow will lead them to talking about themselves through indirect compliments in comparison to others.

Perhaps attention whores just need a little love that they have lacked to receive from their childhood. Psychologically, attention is needed, but exhausting it is simply pathetic and clearly a damn shame.

Now, please be aware that attention whores are underground too. They might just be the person next to you.

A tool who will do anything for attention. They try to invade the lives of passersby and other non-interested parties who are trying to live their own lives. Extremely insecure, the attention whore didn't get enough attention from their mommy while growing up. They try to compensate for the lack by forcing their presence onto others because they are too dimwitted to find a healthier way to cope or mature. Probably illiterate.
I wish I could tell that attention whore Harley/Rice rocket rider/biker that he should go cry to his mommy instead of rev his engine at top noise level 20 feet from my lunch table.

Someone who screams attention through many discrete means at the expense of others.
Example

1)Text Message - The attention whore message is delivered to someone that is currently dating or was dating. Alternatively, they are half assed friendships that they can’t seem to shelve because they are attention whores.
Their text would be a message of curiosity commonly inquiring what you are doing but ultimately is a sad form of attention to see how much interest is still there. The clear distinction between honest inquiries is follow through. “Let’s meet up some time” OK!. Also, the text has a tendency to end abruptly because you have already satisfied their needs of whoredom. This can be devastating to some or a bit of an annoyance to others depending on how much you give a shit.
*WARNING: Apathy breeds more texts. Attention whores sense they are losing you and will continue to text until you back in the vicious cycle of random texts or you drop them completely.
2) Taco Shop -“Let’s go home and get naked!” Attention whores are notorious for making random remarks to see if their male counterpart will actually come home and touch a boob or two when in actuality the man gets no play at all. The attention whore passes out snoring and regrets whole thing via text the next day. A.W - “Did we kiss?” Apathetic Man – “No, I just placed it in the butt”
3) Party Scene – “You know out of all the people I met in San Diego, you’re my favorite. We should hang out more” This attention whore maneuver is a classic bear trap. They reel you in with what you thought was a candid moment. They provide plethora of compliments and flirty actions only for them to ignore your call later and precedes a two day later text about how they missed your message.
*Complimenting these actions with an actual “date” is a recipe for disaster.

1. Ann Coulter; political pundit who prides herself in making outlandish, shocking, gratuitous and slanderous statements so as to generate attention for herself and for no other productive end; see also, Michelle Malkin.
2. Paris Hilton; "celebrity" known principally for who she is and for outlandish personal behavior, not for her work. All too willing to parade one's personal failings in public for additional attention, for no other productive end; see also, Anna Nicole Smith.
Ann Coulter and Paris Hilton have this much in common at least: they are both attention whores.
