    I think you're a little too wrapped up in this as well if you care that much she's watching you on the Internet, unless she's directly contacting you.
    Yeah, getting anxious over someone "liking" a post seems a bit paranoid. If she does it several times a week, that's understandable. People "like" random posts all the time.

    It has on occasion been several times a week. Yes, I guess it's paranoid. It is probably a leftover from her habit (before I blocked her) of getting irrationally angry with me and "unliking" a few dozen things on my page. That sort of thing.

    The classic was when my public FB page hit 50 likes and she was so jealous that she unliked it, so I wouldn't be at 50 any more.

    Ok, so I am a bit over-obsessed with the FB-type stuff. I think it is a case of detaching myself from all the unpleasantness that has gone before. Also, it may be her intention that I notice this stuff and get stressed out. Fortunately, although I may still be too preoccupied in my head, I've succeeded in not showing her at all that I'm worried. I'm just ignoring/staying away and hopefully that will ultimately kill her own obsession.

    HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW THIS? This would only be something I was aware of with an ex-bf or something. Really? REALLY?

    Wow you are being an Ni dom to the extreme, I'm not trying to be mean, but I've actually had an Ni dom do this to *me* before, like totally overreact when he was being INdirect, really jumping to conclusions and stuff.

    Stop obsessing about her, and you'll notice less that she's obsessing over you.

    I know because she told me! I was like "oh, petty behaviour...nice" and she said "I think it's better for me to be petty than to do other things."

    Ok. She's in love with you.

    I apologize for judging you based on my own experiences.

    Do the thing on facebook where she can't even search your profile.

    It's fine. Yeah, I've blocked her entirely.

    I imagine she may end up being the subject of other people's threads on online forums as well. I have a couple of friends who've tried to do a lot to help her as well (though not to the over-involved extent I did) and she's driven them nearly insane too. She stalks/imitates others to a certain extent too but I think tends to pick one person she's insanely fixated on, at a time.

And I have little to no sympathy for her stupid parents.
    Mmmm, is your OP an example of the INFJ doorslam? :P

    It's good you confronted her directly and in no uncertain terms. That's what you need to do. Though it probably came too little, too late in retrospect.

    As for your quoted text, I understand where you are coming from. And I think this episode is probably going to be "The Lesson" that changes your mind on how, to what extent, and to whom, you reach out to.

    This is not an uncommon problem for NFs, though generally it's to the more indiscriminate, slightly outwardly clueless (that's kind honesty!!!) XNFPs . I've had this happen to me as well (people growing attached and thinking our relationship was something it was not).

    I understand sympathy and compassion prevented you from being harsher earlier, but good boundaries make for good friends and even better, it keeps you safe and sane! It also helps teach other people boundaries, else they will always be tripping and falling over them. I hope you learned a lot about your limits and recognizing troubled people/behavior before it gets out of hand. Personally, I'm not nearly as nice as I used to be in public or with strangers. Needy people with issues, god bless them, have an antennae and know exactly who they can attach to and how far they can push things. They are not malicious usually and cannot help themselves but don't let them suck you dry or make effigies of you out of your hair that they worship next to their beds at night.

    As far as her stalking behavior now, you also know it, but it's nothing out of the ordinary looking at it objectively. Yes, it feels incredibly creepy to you because you know her and how intense/odd her fixation is and know she's continuing in a smaller way her previous unwanted behavior. However, if you really don't want people following you around online, you basically don't have a blog or participate in anything online. That's what people do after really bad break ups, change their phone number, erase online blogs and Facebook, even change emails and sometimes they even move physically. I had a guy start a dating profile page just to check my profile out and let me know that he had looked, then promptly he erased his profile. There have even been people on this forum say that someone is using the forum to monitor them. Stuff like that goes with the territory of having any kind of online presence.

    I might even go so far as to suggest you moving churches. It sounds extreme and may seem like a big loss of community but that is just too close for comfort.

    But yes, please, feel free to shake it all off in here and vent to your heart's content.

    Hope you came out of this wiser.

    Yup, really relate to this. Generally I attract pretty healthy people who are quite similar to me (a lot of IxxJs, and not emotionally insane whatever their type!). But I do fall into the "too nice" or "doormat" trap sometimes, and then attract weird/difficult people. The good thing about an experience like this is that I'm hardening up a lot in saying no to those who might suck me dry (or who I simply don't want to get too involved with.)

    I've considered the entirely removing online presence/moving to another congregation ideas. Both of which I'm reluctant to do as I have an investment in them. I think that realistically, although some of this is still bothering and upsetting me, it is in large part delayed reaction, or over-reaction to current small petty stuff that reminds me of nastier stuff that happened. I don't envisage it getting worse again, and hopefully if I continue to ignore/not react it will just die away entirely. But we'll see.

    My thought, as an NF and N dom, is to distance yourself absolutely as much as possible. Don't check out anything of hers online - in fact, maybe avoid facebook for a while - try to avoid her entirely at church, etc. Not in a hiding sort of way, but in the way that your mind-connections will begin diminishing. If there are things that remind you of her, try to make new connections for those things with other feelings and experiences. If you do encounter her, try to immediately think of other things and dampen your emotional response. Let your mind loosen ties to her and fade her out. Then eventually you will be able to think of her emotionally much in the same way as you can think of an ex, with a sort of neutral distance, and less stirring of emotion despite an awareness of strong emotion in the past.
    I echo this also.

    Keeping tabs on someone just makes you "involved" with them still. People somehow pick up on this "interest", even if you are not directly interacting with them. If you began to detach emotionally/mentally, then even when confronted with "signs" of her you will find less & less response to it within yourself, and she will likely sense this indifference also.

    I also always tells myself that if I can see that someone else is very "off" (or mean or rude or whatever), then so can others. There's often little need to worry about whatever lies they could spread because these people tend to discredit themselves very quickly. The more you distance yourself (physically & mentally), the less power they have to affect you. Your main power is to remove & resist any affect on yoursef from her actions.

    These kinds of people can follow you around or keep tabs on you, but your obliviousness to them will grow old quite fast. They need some kind of response or acknowledgment of them, negative or positive. Stalker rule #1 (because unfortunately I have dealt with stalkers) is that no response or acknowledgment of their existence is the best way to get rid of them.

    This is a joke, right?

    At a stretch, I could see a higher tendency in P-dom, but any P-dom, including Pi-dom (pretty sure all of my stalkers were IxxJs). It's often a perception issue with people like this (they genuinely cannot "see" that you don't want them), and P-dom are more driven by perception.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I disagree with the bolded because people perceive people differently, and judge them differently. There's also things like group-think to contend with.

    However, you're probably right about this in the sense that the people who really matter, the people who actually know you and/or care about you, won't believe a detractor who is "off" or mean, or whatever.

    I've been told this by a mod on this forum. If there's a dog there, we don't need you to point and scream and jump up and down and tell us there's a fucking dog there.

    LOL.

    Yes, an on-going forum joke.

    But I can totally see your theory about P doms in general perceiving things a certain way.
