Due to recent events (if you text me repeatedly for 4+ years without a response we are not friends!) I felt the need to bring this up again. Take the creepers seriously. They’re creepy for a reason.
Did you know that one of the top two predecessors to domestic homicide is stalking?
The term “stalking” is used pretty casually. People “Facebook stalk” each other all the time and generally that just means that some friend thought it would be funny to like an embarrassing picture from years ago so it shows up on everyone’s timelines again in all its glory. It’s funny, harmless, and maybe a little irritating.
But then there’s real, actual stalking. Like the “calls you forty times in the middle of the night and the power’s out and you’re home alone and says they’re coming to your apartment whether you like it or not” kind of stalking.
And to that I say call the cops. Not “well if he does it again I’ll call” or “he’s probably just joking around” or “my doors are locked so I’ll just pretend I’m not home.”
