They get old after 2 seconds. I’ve never been able to tolerate melodramatic behavior.

drama queens bad…...answered by FEmale.

I know this question is aimed at men, but—for what it’s worth—drama queens get old to women too!

It drives me insane. Put the gun to my head and pull the trigger.

ubersiren's avatar

I don’t think these two questions are comparable, but yes, dramatics get old. One of the reasons my former best friend is not my current best friend.

bob_'s avatar

@ubersiren Well, I didn’t say they were comparable: inspiration can come from many places. I’m curious, though, in what ways would you say they’re different?

wundayatta's avatar

Like I said, everyone gets old after a while.

Assuming their health cooperates.

Just sayin.’

That is why I carry around miniature Oscar statues to hand out for their great performances. I have a few on my shelf here I have awarded to myself!

kenmc's avatar

After a while? No. Immediately? Yes.

ubersiren's avatar

@bob_ Fair enough. I don’t know that I want to go into it.

@Cruiser Lol…

bob_'s avatar

@ubersiren Okay, now I’m even more curious.

Does drama queen mean they cry a lot? Scream and cry or what?
Who could stand that?

chyna's avatar

@Aster Attention seekers, talk loud, everything is about them, start/cause problems with everyone around them…

rpm_pseud0name's avatar

@Aster, To me, a drama queen (along with what @chyna said) is someone who heightens the importance of the mundane & require the involvement of others for a resolution to their petty problems.

Seaofclouds's avatar

Yes. I get tired of drama queens a lot faster than the jokesters mentioned in the other question.

DarlingRhadamanthus's avatar

Yes, especially when the queen is a man. :) And not even gay (which would be a hell of a lot more fun and interesting to me.) This guy I know absolutely exhausts me.

Enough already! Do I have to hear you whine one more time?

tinyfaery's avatar

Sure. Men make the best (or is it the worst?) drama queens.

ucme's avatar

I think they’re funny. In a sad spoit brat pitiful sorta way.

@bob_ well, for almost 20 yrs, was married to “Queen Bee Of Drama!” she wrote the book on drama!

bob_'s avatar

@BoBo1946 Did you divorce her? Why did you put up with 20 years of drama?

janbb's avatar

My Mom is almost 91 so yes, they do get old.

BoBo1946's avatar

@bob_ yes i did….and the reason i stayed there was that ugly four letter word called love!

bob_'s avatar

@BoBo1946 Love or lust?

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

Drama Queens get very tedious, regardless of their sex or gender. Do they get old? Only if those around them will allow that to happen!

nikipedia's avatar

Oh, I think dudes love drama queens. Crazy girls are never single for long.

BoBo1946's avatar

@nikipedia wow, that scares me! Would that be codependency?

wundayatta's avatar

@nikipedia Neither are crazy guys. Just sayin.’

LuckyGuy's avatar

The crazy girls should be reserved for crazy guys. They deserve each other.

(I can’t stand the drama queens or their crazy friends.)

le_inferno's avatar

My best friend is a huge drama queen. She’s just crazy, totally manic. I learn to just laugh at it and not let it suck me in. The dramatics can get tiresome, of course, but I just quietly wait for the spell to pass.

MacBean's avatar

Never. Endless source of entertainment.

BoBo1946's avatar

Definition of drama queen: Someone who turns something unimportant into a major deal. Someone who blows things way out of proportion when ever the chance is given.

So, would a man be a drama king? Or, male or female could be called a drama queen?

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

If women feel abused by the lack of a separate term for males, then let us differentiate. Otherwise, the one term can be used inclusively.

Coloma's avatar

I think it’s a young womans ‘disease’ most of the time. lol

Now…IF the women in question is over, say….mmmmmm, 30…I think it’s likely to be a possible permanent condition and I would suggest a ‘Run Forest Run!’ approach. lolol
