FACE TO FACE WITH YOUR STALKER
So finally your stalker that you didn’t know you had decides on a little face time. It could be a neighbor, a friend of one of your friends or family member, or maybe even a random stranger. Here are a few things to keep in mind if this ever happens to you.
Stay Calm In The Face Of Your Stalker
Depending on where your stalker has decided to confront you, always remember to keep your cool, as the last thing you want to do is have what could be just a simple hello turn into an assault or better yet a kidnapping because you let your temper get the best of you.
Stand Your Ground
Which ever excuse you start using in an effort to gain space, whether it’s “I’m late for work”, or “My boyfriend is almost home” or whatever, stick to it. Don’t let your stalker’s silver tongue or cool demeanor distract you from what is most important right now which is creating space and exiting the scene as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Check Your Surroundings
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you are being confronted by someone you don’t know or whom makes you feel uncomfortable make sure to check your surroundings. For example, take a mental note of the vehicles, people, or buildings in close proximity. If your lucky you will see your purse laying there with that Lipstick Pepper Spray you bought a few months back for a time just like this one and remember to pick it up.
And last but not least…
Tell A Friend
Assuming you walk away unscathed, always let someone know what happened. No matter how insignificant the encounter appeared, telling someone else what happened is always a great idea. For all you know your stalker may have just been testing the waters to see how close he/she could get to you without causing a scene. And always remember, in order to stop a stalker you must first think like one. So stay alert out there and you will always be safe.
