Not all of us have been a stalker or a stalkee, but for those of us who have been on either end of this creepy spectrum, this post should prove either interesting or appalling.
To the stalkers: Your behavior does not make us want to be with you. Sending us text messages, calling us frequently and threatening us with “you’ll never meet anyone like me ever again” does not work. Like… really? We are freaking hoping we never meet anyone like you… ever.
You see, we left your sorry ass because of your suffocating, over-bearing, jealous behavior. Nope, doesn’t matter how hot you are/were or how great in the sack you were or all the times you brought us lunch… we do not want you.
It is over. Time for you to move on.
To the stalkees: Protect yourself! Document all the irrational behavior on your stalker’s part. If you can change your email or cell number, do it. If not, keep text messages, emails, and all other correspondence. This will come in handy should you require a protection order.
Do everything in your power to keep the stalker at bay: block them on Facebook, ignore their rants via text message, email and voicemail. Most importantly, if they are harassing you in person, go to the police and get a protection order.
These situations are volatile and can turn dangerous. Protect yourself!
