Add one and I become excited,

Add another and I call someone,

Keep going and you will get something trendy,

Add another and you will want me,

Well now, add another and I will look like a weird balance,

Add another and I'll bring you up,

Yes, yes keep going and, and, and...?

Well okay add another, and there will always be more.

Add the last and final, and I will always go ahead of what you started with.

I will add a hint soon that will shift your thinking in the right direction...

Hint 1

Adding the no-computers tag would make this even trickier.

• Lines 3-5 looks like rot13(cubar, vcubar, vcubark) to me, but I can't fit that in with the rest. I think it's because I want that vcubark. Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 2:49
• initial word possibly "exited" Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 15:45
• Great guess, but this is a little more literal. :) @ALinuxLover Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 15:56
• exited + c = excited was my thought process :p Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 16:02

I think this refers to

The symbols on the top row of a keyboard.

This is the end bracket, ), found on the 0 key.

Add one and I become excited,

This is the exclamation !, found on the 0+1 = 1 key.

Add another and I call someone,

On PSE this is a tag call, @, on the 2 key.

Keep going and you will get something trendy,

That's #socool #trendy #fam, #3key

Add another and you will want me,

Everybody wants that $4k(ey) Well now, add another and I will look like a weird balance, The % looks like a weird balance, on the 5 key Add another and I'll bring you up, ^ is commonly used as exponentiation, on the 6 key Yes, yes keep going and, and, and...? Yes, yes keep going &, &, & the 7 key Well okay add another, and there will always be more. This could be because * represents multiplication and a wildcard, on the 8 key. Per @QuantumTwinkie, this represents that if you see * in text, there is always fine print or a footnote. (Condition applied!) Add the last and final, and I will always go ahead of what you started with. This is the opening bracket, (, on the 9 key • Correct! Sbe gur "*" vg zrnag sbe vg gb or yvxr gur svar cevag. Bgurejvfr 100% pbeerpg! (ybir gur unfugntf!) :Q Commented Sep 29, 2018 at 20:21 • @QuantumTwinkie #thanksfam! Haha that was a good puzzle!
