Love can lead us to doing some strange things. It ebbs and flows through our lives, giving us moments of pure ecstasy before dragging us down in the dumps. Even the friendships that we find in our lifetime can cause a wave of emotion to flow through our bodies. For many people, human relationships grow easier as they get older, but there are those out there who never quite find their footing. These people often struggle to make friends and start relationships, but that doesn't mean that we all haven't struggled at some point in our lives.
Unfortunately, the lower periods in our lives can cause us to make poor decisions that we always end up regretting. We act with our emotions, and when we look back at these terrible choices, we wonder why we made them in the first place. Desperation is a stench that all of us have worn, and those of us who are past that point in our lives can smell it all over other people.
So, in order for you to learn how desperate you actually are, we decided to compile this quick quiz. All you have to do is answer these questions honestly. Once you're finished, we'll let you know how desperate you are!
1Never Have I Ever...Chased A Person In A Relationship
This is something that countless people are guilty of, and really, we can’t wrap our heads around it. If someone is in a relationship, then give them some healthy space and remain friends. You may have feelings for them, but you have got to check your feelings and not be this desperate.
2Never Have I Ever...Cheated On My Significant Other
Yet again, we find ourselves questioning you about something that people shouldn’t be doing, but we are asking for a reason. If you need attention from other people so badly that you cheat on your significant other, then you have bigger problems than you realize. Only desperate people stoop this low.
3Never Have I Ever...Drunk Dialed An Ex
Admittedly, just about everyone has done this, but that doesn’t change how desperate you look while doing this. Sure, having a few drinks can have us feeling some type of way, but getting belligerent and committing this modern-day sin will leave you wishing that you had gone about things differently.
4Never Have I Ever...Hooked Up With An Ex
Drunk dialing is one thing, but making the decision to shack up with your ex is always a poor decision. Being single can cause some bouts of loneliness, and as much as you miss your ex, hooking up with them reeks of desperation. Do yourself a favor and avoid doing this again.
5Never Have I Ever...Caved In To Peer Pressure
Believe it or not, there are plenty of adults who are desperate and have no confidence, and this toxic combination will lead people to do some pretty stupid things. Some people have a hard time fitting in, but caving in and doing stupid things is one of the most desperate things a person can do.
6Never Have I Ever...Blown Up A Person’s Phone
Folks, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if a person isn’t frequently responding to you, there is a reason. If you’re interested in someone, you want to make conversation. But, if they rarely respond back, they have no interest in you. Please, leave these poor people alone and move on.
7Never Have I Ever...Liked All Social Media Posts
The usual suspects that like our posts on social media function as fans of sorts, but there is a point where this becomes desperate. It isn’t a bad thing to show someone that you’re interested in them, but liking all of their posts is lame. They don’t need a thumbs up because they checked in at the DMV.
8Never Have I Ever...Changed Plans To Hang Out
Making yourself too available to a person that you’re interested in is a horrendous idea, and if you’re doing this, please stop immediately. Live your own life and keep true to your plans. If you are constantly dropping everything that you’re doing to spend time with someone, you need to stop.
9Never Have I Ever...Showed Up Unannounced
Whether it is at their job or at their house, showing up unannounced is never a good idea. Most people have plenty of things going on in their lives, and your unwanted presence will act as nothing but a hindrance to them and their plans. Trust us when we say that your actions aren’t endearing.
10Never Have I Ever...Made Intimate Plans With A Friend
When your stuck in the friend zone, many people try to do just about anything to make the person see that they are the one for them. Sometimes, this can lead people to making intimate pans with the object of their affection. If they are just your friend, don’t try and make romantic plans. It never works.
11Never Have I Ever...Been A Friend Chameleon
Finding people who share similar interests isn’t all that difficult in this day and age, and many of us can make at least one friend where we are at. However, some people will drastically alter their interests in order to fit in with a group of people. There are few things that are as desperate as being a friend chameleon.
12Never Have I Ever...Agreed With Everything Someone Said
People have different opinions, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. It’s completely okay to have opposing views from another person as long as you are being true to yourself. Sadly, desperate people will see themselves agreeing with everything that certain people say in order to get attention and affection.
13Never Have I Ever...Message First Every Time
So many people do this without ever realizing that this is the case. If someone is interested in you, whether it is in a friendly or romantic way, they will meet you in the middle when it comes to initiating contact. If you are always hitting someone up first, then some changes need to be made.
14Never Have I Ever...Continued To Message With No Response
Not unlike blowing up someone’s phone, this particular question runs the gamut of communication. Thanks to social media and other apps, we can contact anyone whenever we like. But, if this person continues to not respond to you on any platform and you continue messaging, then you are insanely desperate.
15Never Have I Ever...Tried To Buy Someone’s Affection
Getting gifts for your significant other is a great way to show affection and let them know that you were thinking about them while they weren’t around. Buying random gifts for friends and those that we are interested in is a surefire way to get people to raise their eyebrows and question your motives.
16Never Have I Ever...Lowered My Standards
It is crazy to think that there are people who actually do this, but you’d be surprised at how many do this willingly. Lowering your standards and settling will only serve to make you miserable, and this life is far too short for you to be miserable. Stick to your guns and get what you want instead of just settling.
17Never Have I Ever...Over-Shared On Social Media
Social media acts as a different thing to each person, and we all know people that share every painstaking detail in their life for their friends to see. People that are guilty of this need to be made aware that they are insanely irritating and that they come across as desperate for attention.
18Never Have I Ever...Fished For Compliments
Everyone does this at some point, but there are people who do this regularly. It feels good to have people say nice things about us, but constantly dropping the bait for people to compliment you is pathetic. Learn to love yourself instead of feeling the need for constant approval from other people.
19Never Have I Ever...Stalked On Social Media
If you say that you don’t do this, then you’re most definitely guilty. Whether you realize it or not, social media stalking is a no-no that is committed by nearly everyone. It is something that can be done in private, and no one will find out. But, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t incredibly desperate.
20Never Have I Ever...Given A Compliment Shower
Instead of fishing for compliments, there are those who love to shower people in compliments all the time. You may think that people enjoy it and that they don’t notice, but you would be sorely mistaken. Giving out an abundance of compliments is not only desperate, but it comes across as creepy.
21Never Have I Ever...Bought An Uncomfortably Expensive Gift For Someone
Being in the friend zone can cause some people to resort to some desperate measures to woo their intended target. Buying someone an expensive gift is nearly as bad as grovelling on the ground. Buying someone an expensive watch is a terrible way to announce to them that you’re interested.
22Never Have I Ever...Gotten Attached Quickly
As we navigate our way through life, we all have to learn to check our emotions to stop them from getting out of control. If you can’t do this, then you are definitely guilty of this. If you are lucky enough to find someone who is interested in you, don’t get attached too quickly.
23Never Have I Ever...Asked A Person’s Friend About Their Interest In You
If you have to question a person’s interest in you, then they probably aren’t interested. Nevertheless, people can’t stop their minds from running out of control, and this is an all too common scenario. Probing a person’s friend for information is a horrendous idea. Besides, they tell their friend about it regardless.
24Never Have I Ever...Reinvented Yourself For Someone Else
Life is all about personal evolution, and making changes can be a beautiful thing. However, you need to make sure that you are making changes for the right reasons. If you are doing this to impress someone, then you’re in the wrong. Make these changes for yourself and for your happiness.
25Never Have I Ever...Sent Emotional Messages
Having someone to confide in is important, but getting overly-emotional in your messages to someone is a terrible idea. We’re not saying that you can’t express yourself, but dropping an emotional bomb on someone can come across as needy and weird. If you have done this already, then good luck fixing that.
