Stalking = Desire > Reason
This is a very important topic. A topic that I feel is often taken too lightly. This is something I have been a victim of myself. I wanted to shortly highlight just how sick the mind of a obsessed stalker really is.
Warning: If this offends you you're probably a freak or a stalker!
When the desire or want for something overtakes the brains ability to rationalize a situation or a relationship, the human mind can form deadly obsessions. The chances of a woman being stalked are an estimated 1 in 14; for men, it is 1 in 50. Other sources claim even higher numbers of victims.
1 in 5; women will be stalked in their lifetime, compared to only 1 in 25; for men.

What Are They Thinking?
Stalkers are obsessed with their victims, and this obsession is expressed in many ways. Some common reasons for this obsession include power, control, and sometimes revenge. Most stalkers don’t take responsibility for their actions and blame others for making them do what they do ( kill, torture, harass ).
Since most stalkers are unable to develop normal personal relationships through more conventional or socially acceptable ways, they have only a life of fantasy relationships with persons they hardly know, if at all. They are usually very socially awkward and a large number have a criminal history of some kind.
General Characteristic of a Stalker
The vast majority of stalkers suffer from a mental disorder. Regardless of the specific disorder, nearly all display some delusional thought patterns and behavioral problems. This behavior can usually be tracked to the stalkers adolescent years. This is when the brain starts a new process of its development.
Are There Different Types of Stalkers?
Yes, they actually there are several different types of stalkers.
Thankfully, The American Psychological Association developed a clinically now validated stalker classification system to identify an individual stalker’s type, risks, and probable responses to management interventions of the Five + types of stalkers.
