Stop A Resentful Stalker
Help Stop A Resentful Stalker by understanding their motivations for stalking.
Resentful Stalkers have never had an intimate relationship with ‘their victim’. This is important and separates this stalker from the ex-partner. They want revenge for something – real or imagined.
Examples: You may have had the promotion the stalker felt was theirs/ they were sacked and you got ‘their’ job/ you happen to have the red car they have always wanted. Remember: This type of stalker enjoys the impact their stalking has on you
Help Stop A Resentful Stalker:
- Keep any feedback to the stalker to a minimum (see the ex-partner section above for suggestions)
- Take this seriously – their enjoyment means their stalking may continue for years if unchecked
- Do not consider meeting to discuss the ‘wrongs’ you are being punished for
A Resentful Stalker is Less likely to assault you than an ex-partner stalker.
- BUT never confront or use threats back, this increases risk
