Usually this person will do anything to impress people, as pathetic as that is. Often, these follower types will target one or two people to be their "idols" this is not a good idea, these people will start to dislike you even more. None of this behavior is going to make you "cool."
All of you Followers/Loners/Social Misfits/Whatever you perfer: "impressing" people usually gets you no where, if no one likes you there are other ways to get noticed besides pissing people. If you are smart you'll be greatful for the few people who give you the time of day and not project this annoying and sad behavior on them.
