That’s obviously rhetorical; the answer is zero. I’ve already had a peeping Tom. I’ve had a guy crash into my car on purpose. I’ve had some truly odd experiences with men that seem to skirt the line between normal and obsessive behavior, but since none of it seemed dangerous to me I disregarded it all. Plus I figure almost every girl deals with some of this stuff, right?
Maybe this has to do with my naïveté, but unfortunately I clearly have a stalker right now. I don’t feel in any danger though, I really am simply perplexed because it doesn’t make sense to me. Someone has been going into my car and leaving the necklace that is on my rear view mirror gingerly draped on the side of it.
The thing is that I am the only one with a key to my car. I bough the car directly from the dealer and never received a second key. The car has a rudimentary alarm build in that sounds off if it is opened without the sensor. Then also tonight the back gate was left wide open with the necklace moved again. I tend to think it may by my ex, but even that seems outlandish for him.
It’s no use confronting him since he would deny it even if it were him. I can’t see him making a copy of my car key because he’s generally a very cheap guy but who knows. I suppose the thing to do is call the local dealership to see if a key was made for my car in their records. Frankly it’s just more annoying than anything. It’s not the kind of stalking I like…not that I like any stalking.
But what girl doesn’t like a secret admirer and tokens of adoration? And I’m not talking about the eaten fruit a mystery person used to leave in my front yard, which made me feel like they had been standing there eating fruit watching my house and then leaving a calling card day after day. That was bizarre. Just bizarre and I know that wasn’t my ex because he wasn’t my ex at the time and he was the one who called the cops to report it…which seemed silly to me to report at the time. I guess my hope here is that this doesn’t escalate to more. Frankly I don’t have the emotional tolerance for it right now. My plate is jam packed already.
So please, if you happen to be the person doing this have a bit of mercy on me. I’m just a girl. There are millions of us in the world. Go expend this energy on someone else…please. Don’t get me wrong; who can’t use more friends, love, support, etc…but obsessive stalking doesn’t fall under those. I’m sure you can find better things to do…and I just don’t need this right now. Really I don’t.
