What does Stan Mean in Texting?

In texting, “stan” is used to describe a crazy, obsessive fan of something. It is generally used in a joking way when you want to insult a friend that they are huge fans of something and can’t be objective about it. This slang term started out as a song by Eminem, called “Stan”. Stan is the name of the main character in the song, a crazy fan of Eminem that is writing letters to him and ends up committing suicide because Eminem doesn’t reply.

In time, the song was so influential, that the term “stan” was coined to describe irrational fans. It even rhymes with fan!
