Many of us have had a stalker, or two. Perhaps the stalker was online, or in real life. Perhaps you were the stalker…
My best worst stalker was a fellow I met online. A vague friendship soon turned into an obsession. He found my phone numbers and called. Continuously. He emailed me. Continuously. He contacted me using bogus accounts, posing as an admirer to gauge my responses. He was a troll on my mailing lists, discussion boards and forums. He used email programs to pose as me in correspondence. He hacked into my accounts, and cracked my passwords.
Then he’d tell me he loved me.
This relationship inside his head lasted for years. To this day, I know he still keeps a cyber eye on me.
“Hi there, Ted!”
