@ OP,

I hate to say this but I think it's all your fault and you brought it on yourself. Maybe you were too flirtatious? Maybe it's what you were wearing? Maybe you should wear less makeup next time, I don't know.

The first person to contact you in a new situation is a social outcast. Avoid them. They are usually the wierdo or "village idiot" looking to make a friend. If you associate with them, you will be instantly labeled and be "guilty by association." This has held true for every new job I have ever had. The first person who wants to show you around or go to lunch is always the office nut. The same is true in MMOs.

File this for future reference and you'll find it true in almost every new situation.
This is one of the more cynical and disturbing pieces of advice I have ever heard.

I AM THAT GUY. And I am not a social outcast or a village idiot (ask my workmates! ask my friends! ask my wife!).

This thread deserves necroing from time to time.

The story in full ( ending at page 11) is so hilarious

The best part is, it was necro'd for the specific purpose of somebody saying they acted like a jerk towards small children.

No, no! By any means, no. Thanks a lot for bringing this thread to my attention. This was such a funny treat.

First thing I thought when I read the OP:

This guy probably plays (played) a female toon and the Greek guy fell in love with him. Then I read 7 pages of the thread and found out that

Sorry for the necro, but wanted to say a few things about this thread.

Found it odd the way people kept lolzing over OP's story. It was more creepy than funny, particularly given that [as the story unfolded] it was clear OP was getting stalked because of how their toon looked and because they made the 'mistake' of being nice to a newb.

Also found it odd the way people kept assuming the problem was a simple question of /ignore. Stalkers, irl or online, aren't that easy to get rid of, and it's a very uncomfortable spot to be in. People also thinking OP was trolling / made up the story ugh. I've had people stalking me in this game because they thought I was a girl or who freaked out because I said I was a guy, and it's not really a funny story.

But the really weird part to me is how common player attitudes seem to be that the only reason to play a female toon for a guy is the eye candy factor. I'm a guy, a lot of my toons are female, but I've only got one toon in slave girl togs [and it's my tankassin, who wears it with Kallig's Countenance]. Otherwise, they generally wear the same sort of armor that my male chars wear.

I play female toons, generally, because I like most of their VAs, because of the access to the male LI stories, and because it offers more variety in solo RPing. I've heard people say before that they 'can't understand why someone would play a female char if they're male irl'. I can't understand that attitude at all - are you so insecure with your sexuality irl that playing a girl char in a game freaks you out?
