|CLINK FOR MORE PARTICIPANTS|
- Be aware of your surroundings.
- Stop all contact and communications with the person harassing you.
- After you've stopped all contact, it's still stalking if that person contacts your friends or family. Give your friends/family the okay to either tell that person to leave you alone or make you aware of the incident.
- Do not respond to the stalkers advancements or acts. That will usually encourage more unwanted attention.
- Record any incident you feel is related to a stalker issue.
- Do not share personal information online.
- Avoid answering online questionnaires.
- Designate a separate email for registering on online sites. Do not use this one for personal or business related dealings.
- Many sites occasionally change their information sharing policies. Check often and make the appropriate changes to protect yourself.
- Use caution when sharing intimate details with online friendships. Mostly, avoid doing so, unless you are sure the person is who they say they are. AND checking their sites doesn't necessarily mean that you are now sure of their identity. Anyone can create a false profile. Anyone.
Above all these for both stalking incidents, share any suspicious activity with someone you can trust. If, after you've broken all ties with said stalker and the behavior does not stop, contact the authorities. DO NOT WAIT.
