Re: 'The Players Twitter Chatting Thread' - Part II

Why aren't I surprised that I get mentioned here That's ok though, I understand how people think and like to label things. So this stalking label has been penned on me, oh well, I know that I'm a good person

He may be just very lonely and not blessed with any looks and carries a low sense of self esteem so he dreams of something special that is out of reach, he takes it too far though, I agree.

I'm sure the natural reaction is to simply ridicule these kind of posts as is human nature to identify with the mainstream herd mentality which encourages and rewards picking on those who are different as a means of identifying oneself based on the ability to be like others and CONFORM rather than be yourself, but I have empathy for this guy's position- if it is genuine and not just some kind of joke, which is doesn't appear to be.

That's true however I feel for him because I've been in that same mindset he's in now. For many reasons it may be difficult for people to make friends or get a girlfriend etc, i.e. low self esteem, social impairments from disorders which are beyond one's control, a sense of not belonging and you just tend to shut down and give up trying for a while. People have mocked me for the same things on twitter with Sabine in the past, they don't understand my life and point of view though. For a time Sabine was the only girl really giving me attention, because I'm shy with girls and in general a little shy. I felt a connection with Bine on twitter because she replied to my tweets, then she suddenly stopped. It took some time but now I basically accept she won't reply and that I was overestimating the significance of our small communications. It was only between a player and fan, it cannot be meaningful, but I can still look back fondly on it as a nice thing from my past (see signature).

I am improving my social and work life which a couple of years ago was virtually non existent, I improved my sense of self worth in relation to others. I'm glad I'm not like this guy now but doesn't mean I find this kind of thing funny or a cheap laugh.

Well it doesn't have the 'verified profile' badge:

looks like it's written by a nutter, but then
