  3. I don't really know the reason why.

I don't really know the reason why, but I play chess because I'm very sad; I began to play this game two years ago and it was for the same reason. I am still very thankful to all the opponents who showed so much patient with my playings without them, I wouldn't have improved a bit. Thanks everybody. God bless and good luck.

but I never cry

Some years  ago, life taught me that I can only cry  to a very good friend, or to a crowd; I am alone right now, so I cry in the crowd.
But do you still call it crying when you've got no tears?

If you dont know that quote; please google it. Then watch that. Immediately.

Your sadness will be overwhelmed by it. The ORIGINAL. Not the terrible SL RM. (You'll know what I mean...once you know what I mean :o)

@xxsoapxx

Sometimes, I play to not think about anything else and I'm a bit sad too. Then chess becomes an outlet. Most of the time I play badly during that period and sometimes get even more frustrated !

But hey, life is a journey. I would be happy to play classical games with you then we could play and chat ! I follow you

Have a nice day :)

@breakreign

I didn't anymore expect that I would get an answer, thanks so much. I have checked the quote on Google and it I find it very good. I just would like to say how much I appreciate all your effort of reaching out to me. I wish you all the best in life.
Have a nice weekend, my friend.

I like to take long walks in the rain so noone can see I am crying.

@whyalwaysme

It is the same with me, I start to play as if I were drunk, and then I would be losing a game after the other; I still would continue to play hoping that I'd get better in the next game; for me, to know that there's someone right at this moment, on the other side of the planet, playing chess with me can be very relieving even if only for a short moment.
Sure I would be happy to play a classical game with you. Thank you, you're very good to me.
 Have a nice evening, and nice weekend :)
