Not like the whole creepy weirdo hiding in bushes but when I was like 15 I was really into this guy so I would literally go through his pics on Facebook every day and read every little thing he put on there. When I finally got over him I knew his full name, how his parents and brothers looked , where he lived, and how his room looked.
Those were dark days
Hey, that is what FB is for no? Not really anything to be ashamed of!
I'm not lol but i wasted so much time on him
im stalking because i was just curious about it :3 well i stop after id met all the things that i want to know about him/her
there's no point on lying though ^_^
Unless they threaten you for following them...
Did they find out you did that?
nope... i know how to keep myself hidden =D
I've been accused of stalking once, only because she had absolutely no courage to say no. Literally, to this day she hasn't explicitly rejected me. It would have been fine if she wasn't into it, she wasn't that special anyways. Just TELL ME. SAY NO. I have other options.
She always agreed to go out, have a chat, have lunch, and spend time together. One day she turned off emotionally and I demanded an answer why via text, and that's when I got a call from the police (they understood my story and the book is closed).
Lost all respect for that girl, she fell below toxic New York sewer sludge. She probably still thinks I'm stalking her, because her cowardice never gave her an accurate understanding of circumstances before, so why would she have a clue now?
Yes, some girls resort to calling you a stalker for revenge... you're lucky the cops believed you
Yes, if this is stalking. I suspected a woman I was dating was lying to me about what she was doing online. I have been a computer programmer since the late 80s. I wrote a program that gathered the date and time she logged into a certain website. I did not hack anything as the website shows if the person is currently online or gives the last date and time they were logged in.
She was lying. Big time. Now she is like yesterday's lunch. Gone from my life.
I was stalked once while looking at the mirror like glass on this corporate building. Kept following me, whenever we made eye contact we would both look away at the exact same time, stop walking at the exact same time.
Lol I think half the people here are thinking of 'facebook stalking' instead of creepily following someone irl.
Right, FB is where stalking is acceptable!
I use to buy "bad paper" for 10 cents on the dollar, when I knew the money was in the court registry... I investigated a lot of people and tracked them down to negotiate with them. I used some really clever marketing innovations that some people thought was pretty manipulative, but it did the job... So technically I stalked some people I never knew for a potential pay day. In other circles it would be termed private investigation... I've never stalked anyone I know or liked though.
Nah, I'm not interested in anyone to the point where I'd want to make them feel uncomfortable, inconvenience myself and risk interaction with the criminal justice system. I'll just call/text them, and if they don't hit me back, then fuck 'em.
I have never stalked anyone. But I have been mildly stalked.. not like hack my computer, hide under my bed, steal my socks stalked... but like, constantly frequent areas I'm known to be at and drive by my house stalked.
That would be a yes...
Good for you! Not too many guys these days can say they have't been accused of it...
So he stopped then? Not so dangerous, I would say...
Physically? No. However, I have looked up old acquaintances, former classmates, and people I used to know on social media. I mainly did it when I was bored.
sure, in the observing sense. not in the oj simpson sense. people stalk people all the time, it's really a very common behavior of interested people. they want to know more about you. im sure your neighbors even do it.
Observing is enough for most girls to call you a stalker
Yup. Not a proud part of my life.
It was when my ex was cheating on me (we were together). He hadn't admitted it but I knew and I followed him.
No, I don't stalk anyone because I don't like being stalked. I just admire my crush from a distance.
Chuckle, for a lot of people that is stalking! Join the club!
I have had to obtain FOUR separate court appointed intervention orders in just two years.
Wow! Four different guys?
Yes. Four different guys.
Why did you need court orders? We're all of them actually physically threatening?
Tbh, I don't want to get into all the details. Waaay too upsetting. Apologies.
No. I have never actually stalked someone; I've been given information that I never asked for about people and used it to my advantage but otherwise I am not that kind of man.
please... I don't stalk. just gathering a bit of information here and there which might, or might not, be useful at some point ;)
No... women aren't even close to interesting enough.
Of all the things in this world , stalking is the creepiest xD
Compared to assault, manslaughter?
wait.. is it bad to look for a girl via facebook & instagram?
I stalk people on Instagram all the time lmao
I wonder how many would count that as stalking?
I'd say it's not staking if the person doesn't know about it... but not everyone would agree with me!
Do they get mad at you?
Not at all. I have been stalked though.
What did you do?
Got a restraining order against him.
That put an end to it?
Haven't heard a thing from or about him in 6 years.
My high school crush a little, online
Does that count as stalking?
I may have many years ago - a crush from school.
no shame, I've stalked my crush :)
No shame? I had to write an apology 25 times
... well why'd u let her find out lol?
They always find out!
thats my part time job

I wonder how many of these people are genuine stalkers and not just people who lurk someone's Instagram. As both a victim & perpetrator of stalking & abuse, that annoys me. It's actually In credibly painful to feel you cannot live without someone bc you have an intense fixation, longing & dependency on them. You see yourself destroying them, you love them, if they would have you back you'd stop. You dnt want to hurt them so why can they not see that? Of course, that's all v distorted & borderline delusional. Your victim has every right to be afraid of you if you threaten or intimidate them--it doesn't matter how much you love & want them in your life. But, that is hard to accept. And I feel for my stalker. I knew he would stalk me when we first started dating. I knew he was the type! But still I did it. I wanted to experience the pain of my victim firsthand tbh, to punish myself & allow myself empathy & perspective. Truthfully I wield a lot of power over my stalker. He's very mentally ill, but I believe he's harmless, & I feel sorry for him. I vastly prefer women tho, that is about it.
