The team from Mrs. Stun Gun believe that by understanding this type of behavior, you will be able to better assess your situation in determining if it's just a crush or potentially something more dangerous.
This is the most common type of stalking. In Simple Obsession stalking, the stalker knows the victim personally. Examples include, ex-boyfriend, ex-employee, ex-neighbor. Most stalkers of this type are male.
The stalker in this case is either a stranger or casual acquaintance of the victim. The stalker has become obsessed and "fallen in love" with the victim. Both sexes are often victimized by this type of stalking. Love Obsession is the second most type of stalking.
This type of stalking is usually performed by females. The stalker believes that the victim is in love with her. Fortunately for most of us, this type of stalker is usually attracted to the rich and famous.
False Victimization Syndrome
