    Default Stalking

    Not quite sure where to put this...but those who do it are messed up.

    I was walking my brazilian mastiff "puppy" (60 lbs at 3.5 months, mind you) around town this morning and this guy came out of nowhere and started walking behind us. Not a big deal at first...just a bit startling. So we're taking some quieter, nicer side streets that run parallel to the main road. My dog keeps looking back at this guy and grunting. I'm just trying to get on with the walk. This guy follows us the whole time on the opposite side walk, just far back enough for it to look obvious that I'm watching him. I decided to head for the main road to get out in public. He continues to follow me and when I finally stop along the main street so I can get him in front of me, he comes to my side of the street, cuts across us maybe 6 feet away, into the street, and heads into town. I was royally freaked. He was an older guy, too. I reported the incident to the cops a bit afterwards, but honestly, where do people get off doing this kind of stuff? My gut (and my dog) say he was following me, so I'm not questioning that. I live in a relatively small, quiet town where not much happens crime wise. We have the usual sex offenders...one right down the street, but I never really expected this to happen. Doesn't help that I'm nearly 20 years old and look like Im 16.

    So my question to you all is, have you ever been followed/stalked? What did you do? How did you react? What do you think goes on in the sick minds of those who commit these sort of acts?

    I feel like my sense of personal security has been stolen. I hope Titan (my pup!) eats him or anyone else who even thinks about doing this again.

    I welcome stalking...it's flattering when I'm being stalked by an attractive girl. It also gives me an excuse to call the cops!

    EDIT: Have you ever heard of the search engine?

    I'd love to be stalked. It would give me an incredible sense of self-worth.

    I was stalked by a girl in high school, she knew I would never be interested in her, but she still did it. She didn't do anything too crazy, but it was annoying. I imagine it is a lot less disturbing and threatening when a girl is the one doing it.

    On the other hand, some people are just doing it for sport. Or prectice.
    For those that watch the "Dexter" series it wouldn't be a surprise that the guy who plays "Dexter", Michael C. Hall, actually did a lot of stalking at night as practice before he started playing his role. Not that it's common with actors doing that particular thing, but I imagine many people think it is exciting to play "spy" or whatever it is they are doing. Most people are really childish Although there are lots of sick fucks, too.

    No one else. Did the "we're/we" confuse you? By that I meant my dog and I. You could probably make a case for including the guy in the "we," though, too.

    To everyone else: I'm sure a(n) (attractive) girl doing the stalking would be a better situation, maybe even enjoyable. Heck, I'd even go for an attractive guy. But alas, I got the male 55 year + variety.

    I envy you.

    Exactly how attractive are you? And how attractive was she?
