I guess this guy never heard of hookers.

He'd end up paying to talk to her, then going crazy in front of a mirror and shooting her pimp.

Perhaps if he'd learned to be personable instead of brooding like a crazyman...

What's the context here? Did he post this on a dating site or what?

All I can say at this point is the ladies don't throw themselves at hella boring guys. Thanks for the detailed walkthrough of your incredibly vanilla domicile there, buddy. Counters, you say? That's fascinating.

The blog:

Both sad and disturbing.

Yeah, I guess I'm just baffled as to why he posted this. He wants to "see what comes back" and is looking for someone 10 to 20 years younger than he is, but rambles about having no emotions standing in front of his punching bag...

jesus.

Herr Matthias - 2009-08-07
In fairness, the second video was an assignment for a "dating course" that he took, in which he was supposed to walk around his house with a video camera. So it's not really as creepy as it seems at first glance.

TFL Bill was right. Hm.

ABout the motivation, not his retarded justifications for it.

Dr Dim - 2009-08-07
It sounds like this was made at a point where he was still trying to have a normal life. Creepy.

When I watch this, I wonder if he could have been saved by either seeing a counselor or if someone out there became his friend.

"Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them."

After watching most of the Dawkins/Wright debate this chills me. It's chilling enough alone. Evil.

After googling, you can find a lot of people who empathize with the guy on some level (while still disapproving of what he did) - they feel that nice guys always finish last, that society hasn't moved past the point where sensitive guys are treated like sissies and never get any play, etc.

All I can say is wow.

Riskbreaker - 2009-08-07
I would love to hear some info from one of the women he dated in the past, to hear about all his creepy antics that, i guess, he found to be "normal". He probably liked to talk about Jesus, about how lonely he was, how "evil" woman can be, and you know, all that stuff that make women jump over anyone.

Infamous - 2009-08-07
The guy had a well-paying job, a home he could afford, and from what I could tell from reading his blog postings, was making an effort to change his situation. It's too easy for us to sit here and think we might not have become the man he became under the same circumstances. When people get desperate enough and feel helpless, they do things that normal, thinking, rational human beings just would not do.

That being said, I don't think anyone would agree that what he did was a good thing. Don't confuse empathy with sympathy.

@Infamous
Good points, all.

Riskbreaker - 2009-08-07
Good points Infamous, but again, i have to wonder what exactly would this man do or say to scare women. As you say, he had good income, a nice place and he was doing exercise. There was something else wrong going on here that the guy never ever noticed about himself.

Crackersmack - 2009-08-07
This guy was putting the pussy on a pedestal.

He probably had unrealistic taste in women as well. To use a car analogy; he was waiting for the bus because he wouldn't drive anything less than a Bentley.
Herr Matthias - 2009-08-07
That was kind of my impression of this story as well.

According to his diary, he had sex 50-75 times in his life and even had a kid at some point. That's not terrific, but it's hardly a "Mom's basement" level of sexual experience.
