look to the noble gasese, they are called noble becase they are netural. Whats so special about them (about how many electrons they have)?

hmmm, so what your saying is that elements on the farthest side of the periodic table of elements want to attract elements on the farthest side relative to it? like a rubber band wanting to come together, but that seems a little wrong because you just told me that noble gases are neutral, meaning that they don't want electrons, if they do not want electrons that means that they have a full electron shield ( something I don't have much grasp of yet.) so...to get to understand what I think i need to understand I need work on that.... OK, thanks I understand it allot more now.

If the outer shell is nearly "full" or just has 1 or 2 electrons in it.
