What is a stalker?
Stalking is the unwanted or obsessed behavior done by an individual or group onto another person. Every state in the USA has laws against stalking and they do vary. However, a good guideline is: if you experience at least one of behaviors on at least two separate occasions it’s most likely you are being stalked.
A stalker can be an individual you know very well, a little, or even not at all. The majority of them have dated or been involved with the victim. A common misconception is that it only happens to females. While women are statistically stalked more, males are also victims. Unfortunately, most victims don’t look for help until the situation has become dangerous.
What are the behaviors of most stalkers?
While this changes depending on individual circumstances there are some common similarities:
- Same person(s) always showing up where you are
- Harassing phone calls and text messages
- Surveillance, usually over multiple days
- Cyber stalking: Emails containing harassing or unwanted text, posting rumors on social media
- Receiving gifts or letters you don’t want
- Damaging your home or any personal property
- Using technology (GPS trackers, hidden bugs and cameras)
- Other actions that control you and cause fear and panic
