    People become fans of others when they identify with and vicariously experience another's life, their joys, and their sorrows. From your own admission, you have taken no effort to provide others with anything to identify with. Are you surprised, then, that you cannot find what you seek?

    Usually, when I go out with other people to do stuff, I feel trapped. I'd rather do things on My own. But I still want admiration.
    When you show your disdain for the activities of others, how do you expect them to identify with you? People may indeed admire you, but have no respect for you.

    I open My mind to suggestions to improve My physical appearance, because I think that may be the problem (nothing's wrong with My personality), but people just see more and more flaws. I don't understand why this is. Or maybe they're just trying to piss Me off further, in which case, maybe it is, if I may reiterate, their fault that I'm focusing on Myself all the time.
    There is no such thing as a physically flawless person. Attractiveness is an entirely arbitrary standard. Deal with it.

    How is it their fault that you focus inward? Do you have no control over yourself? Why do you expect them to listen to you when you do not listen to them?

    when i read fantastic threads like this,
    (however current fave is 'baby don't get fat' thread)
    i always think of which advertisers would best
    endorse the particular threads. this one i pick

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    People who admire only themselves are like stagnant ponds. Or to put it another way, they’re like the Amish, forever stuck in the 17th century. With no influx of new ideas and influences, they get stuck at a certain age and a certain phase. Compared to their peers, those individuals seem puerile and infantile.

    If you want to be admired, you have to stay fresh and current. To do that, you have to be open to new influences and thoughts, learning from others and constantly synthesizing and combining what’s already part of you together with the new influences and ideas incoming from around you.

    If you’re not doing that, then you’re just another man-child: a 15-year old in an adult’s body playing around with the same goth/Nazi themes you’ve been flogging for a decade or so and wondering why people don’t get you.

    That’s kind of the way I see you. You’ve got a slight talent for self-promotion that’s fun to observe, but there’s nothing new to promote. You ran out of fresh material a long time ago.

    I'm not trying to be insulting, BTW; I'm just answering the question as I see it.

    I think he just likes the attention and is playing a part to get as much of that as possible. The part he's playing may be partly based in reality. And of course, by commenting on this thread we're all kind of going along with it.

    Do you think you might be a psychopath or close enough to it? Maybe there's nothing you can do, but improve your manipulation skills. Or is that what you were asking for from the start? Fake it till you make it.

    I'm a psychopath now? I'd love to hear your reasoning behind that. What on this thread suggests psychopath?

    I bet it's enough to make even a contortionist wince.

    @OP: If your goal is to "make fans," I'm going to suggest this thread is extremely counter-productive.

    I even googled My quote, and you know what the first thing that popped up was? Tada!!! You're damn right that quote was original. Maybe I will be in the history books of the future! So I don't know why you're all getting bored over it! That alone entitles Me to more attention and fans.
