I've been stalked both in real life and virtually. The virtual stalking was done by my 55 year old neighbour and actually creeped me out much more - I'd known him and his wife since I was three years old and when I found out that he'd used his wife's Facebook account to get pictures of me to save to his hard drive, I was pretty scarred for a while. There wasn't even anything risque on there, but knowing that he was getting off to me... Ugh. It happened almost five years ago and it's only in the last couple of months that I've begun to put pictures up again. He used to invite me over to his (isolated, far-from-where-people- could-hear-me-scream) little cabin to "wake him up" before work, and I get this awful feeling that he probably creeped over to our place a lot when I was younger. This whole thing brought to light the fact that he'd abused his daughter before she left home at 17, and it really broke my heart for her.
I've also had someone try to kidnap me, which - although it wasn't really prolonged stalking - was pretty terrifying up until I broke his nose and ran away.
