25 People Confess Their Terrifying Stalker Stories

Having a stalker has to be one of the scariest things imaginable. You never feel safe or alone. There is the constant fear of danger, and fear that someone is watching you.

Many of the following stories start the same. You are just being nice to a slightly off person, and it comes back to bite you in the ass. Or you do absolutely nothing, and somehow capture the fancy of a random scary individual.

Remember that your instincts are usually right. That if someone seems off or gives you the heebie-jeebies, then perhaps there is something to be suspicious of.

And please, if you have a stalker, call the police, change your number, and protect yourself. Don’t become friends with your stalker (YOU HEAR THAT #18?!).
