It happens, people don't always specifically state their gender, and if they do it may not have been read. I didn't know what gender you are to be honest.
Anyway, that's not what you should be concerned about. You should be concerned about your behaviour. You still use the phrase 'look up to,' that's not what you're doing. You impose yourself on people, follow them around, don't give them space, demand attention.
That's not looking up to people, it's at best being a nuisance and at worst a creepy stalker.
