I write this knowing that my stalker is watching each letter as it begins the next word. I write it without hesitation, because silence is what perpetuates their harassment. While speaking out also has its consequences, I choose to be bold and fearless. I've been told that I could upset them by doing so, but that they could also get pleasure out of knowing. ...more
When we think of secret admirers, sometimes we think of the sweet and innocent guy who sends us flowers through an incognito expression. Perhaps he’s too shy to say hello or he enjoys seeing the smiles on your face; while he watches you unpack envelops of money, cards and memo’s from behind his darkly tented shades, from across the room. You can’t see him and there’s a certain thrill that comes from not knowing him or being sure that it’s him; but knowing that someone admires you in such a way....more
It seems like there are a lot of creepers out there these days. Honestly, I would just like to venture out without my husband and NOT be bombarded by creepy men.

These things made me nervous at times; angry at times; and left me feeling stuck in the "friendship." ...more
This is Selena Gomez's new video.
The video channels a European based spy film that rotates around the troubles of a beefy, single man (read Matt Damon Daniel Craig), except it revolves around a 16 year old girl.

None of us want to drive away a new love with stalker behavior, but sometimes insecurities get the better of us. Sadly, it's not until after our new love is long gone that we gain enough perspective to see exactly where we went wrong. Lord knows, when we're in the thick of our obsessive neurosis, we can't see past the next text -- you know the one you think is going to magically turn things around but, of course, never does?
