If you are a victim of stalking, you need to know that the stalking was not your fault. Although you may not feel it at this time, you are not alone. Help and support are available for you.
Legal definitions of stalking vary across jurisdictions and are typically very specific in explanation, stalking can generally be defined as a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.
Stalking is serious, often violent, and can escalate over time. It most likely will not stop if it is just ignored. In fact, ignoring the behavior sometimes seems to cause the behaviors to increase in frequency and/or become more disturbing or bizarre. Stalkers have physically assaulted, sexually assaulted, and/or murdered their victims.
