Perhaps there is such a thing as too much. Wanting too much, caring too much, trying too much.
But if someone says that they like it, if they enjoy the attention, when do you stop? If they don’t tell you, how do you know to? And why are you punished when you don’t… when you were just trying to show you cared?
I was giving the attention you craved, and just wanted some of it reciprocated.
