Top definition
A way of relating to the world in which a person consistently overreacts to or greatly exaggerates the importance of benign events.

Typically "drama" is used by people who are chronically bored or those who seek attention.

People who engage in "drama" will usually attempt to drag other people into their dramatic state, as a way of gaining attention or making their own lives more exciting.

Common warning signs/ risk factors of drama or a dramatic person are:

1. Having one supposedly serious problem after another.

2. Constantly telling other people about one's problems.

3. Extreme emotionality or frequently shifting, intense emotions.

4. Claiming to have experienced negative events that are highly implausible.

5. A boring job or mundane life.

6. Making claims without sufficient evidence or a lack of detail about supposedly serious events.

7. A pattern of irrational behavior and reactions to everyday problems.
Sarah had a slight fever and mild cough. She decided to use drama, in order to receive sympathy and attention, so she told everyone she was deathly ill.

Debra lost her keys then spent four hours crying and yelling at her husband.

Mary did not answer her cell phone for an hour, so John feared that she had died in a horrible car accident.

Someone stole Steve's can of Coke from the break room fridge, now he believes that someone at work is trying to destroy him.

Started 200 Wednesday's when Jessica told Amber that Tasha's shirt is so cute, but Amber hates Tasha so Amber told Vicky that Jessica said that Tasha's shirt was just so sliggity that she couldn't stand the sight of it and her. The next day, at the infamous MeanGirl lunch table, Tasha splashes her iced tea on Jessica for calling her a skeezer as told to her by Greg who was told by Kaylee who was told by Tony who was told by Jessica's Cousin Felicia, who was told by Ashley who was told by Vicky who was told by Amber. That was the day Skankwars begun and a 17-day riot took over the school when all the cute girls carried 9mm's in their coach purses. Drama never ends, its only a cycle that gets reborn because Amber still won't forgive Tasha for whatever the fuck she did.

Not based on a true story, but I'm sure you know that this actually happened at your local high school. Enjoy

The act of making a complete fool of yourself. Going above and beyond what a normal person would do. Not being able to control your emotions. Going into a state of extreme rage. Willing to start a fight with your best friend just because.

Something women and especialy teenage girls thrive on. consisting of any number of situations that have an easy solution, wich would bring a fairly good outcome, but these girls choose another, shitty, bad way to deal with it, again consisting of backstabbing, blackmailing/gossiping/betraying their friends, or the all-too-common "I want to break up with him but i still love him!"
it drives men and what i like to call "normal" girls nuts.
watch any show on that crap channel "the N" for a good example, or just talk to my sister. the drama that retard stirs up is unblievable.

a word that is overused, overdone, and overanalyzed.

Andrea: I know, when does it stop.
