At some point or another, every woman has insisted that she hates drama. Only some of those women are telling the truth. If you relate to any of the following, I hate to break it to you, but you don’t hate drama at all — you’re addicted to it.

  1. You’re the gossip queen of your friends. When it comes to gossip, you don’t shy away. In fact, you’re usually the one bringing up stuff that’s meant to be kept hush-hush and sharing all the juicy tidbits with everyone else. Even if you don’t know the person, you know everything about them.
  2. Reality TV is your favorite. Every single show you watch is a reality show and you like it that way. Being addicted to drama on screen is a good indicator that you’re addicted to it off screen, too.
  3. You constantly claim that drama finds you, not the other way around. Drama is either created by you or you’re forcing your way into others’ drama because you find it exhilarating and fun. If you’re constantly telling people you hate drama but can’t escape it, it’s likely you don’t want to.
  4. Making mountains out of molehills is your forte. If something small happens that messes with your day, you obsess and bitch about it to anyone that will listen for hours or even days. You’re not just venting anymore, you’re basically begging for attention. DRAMA!
  5. You love to overreact. When the lady at the counter gave you fries instead of onion rings, you let her have it. How dare she get your order wrong — is she stupid? You ruin her day by freaking out over nothing and then continue to let all your friends in on the dirty details of how you made some counter girl cry over onion rings.
  6. You always play both sides of the argument. When two of your besties have it out for each other, you’re the first to listen to each one of them vent. The difference between good friends and you is that you take everything friend A said about friend B and quickly tell friend B everything, and vice versa. You’re not helping, you’re pot stirring.
  7. You comment on everything. When it comes to social media, every single post has your name written all over it with some holier than thou opinion attacking someones views. Bonus points if you’ve had an argument with a complete stranger on someone else’s post.
  8. You’re offended by everything, and you make it known. It seems we’re in the age of offensiveness, and you fit right in with the majority. Almost everything really grinds your gears and when that happens, you have no intentions of holding back.
  9. Everyone knows your personal business. That’s because you go out of your way to make sure they know. Whether it be through constant status updates of fights with your boyfriend or on the subway yelling your problems to the entire car, your business is apparently everybody else’s too.
  10. Your relationships are always heated. Every relationship you’ve ever been in has been a monumental disaster. Sure, you could say that you just have bad luck, but usually it’s because of the type of people you seek out.
