Today’s era of advance technology and development enables us to communicate with our friends and soulmates online via social media like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp Messenger, etc. Online dating and chatting are very much common nowadays. We prefer chatting with our love mates online, for hours and hours. But at times we fail to see the invisible line between normal dating and infatuation. If we are too habitual to have a glance over anyone’s profile, then we are stalking him or her. The following are a few signs that indicate whether you’ve become a stalker or not:

But at times we fail to see the invisible line between normal dating and infatuation. If we are too habitual to have a glance over anyone’s profile, then we are stalking him or her. The following are a few signs that indicate whether you’ve become a stalker or not:

 

  • In social networking sites, people often like each others’ posts. So do we. If we find our friend’s post fascinating and wonderful, we “Like” the post. But many people like all the posts of a person without even having a glance over those posts. There’s nothing wrong with liking a friend’s post, but if we like them just to make sure that none of his or her posts are left that are not liked by you, then it’s an infatuation.
  • A few people are such that they prefer going through a friend’s id rather than simply asking him or her directly about any issue. For example, if you want to know about your friend’s likings, you’ll go through all the information of that person’s profile and get to know him or her much better.

  • Stalkers fail to comprehend the difference between real and virtual world. They try to trace out a person’s details of attending an event, then try to locate the venue of the same and finally reach the venue to surprise that person.
  • If we see one of our crushes with a third person of your gender, tagged in one of the posts with your crush, you try to figure out whether the third person has any bond with your crush or is he or her just a casual friend.
  • If you find a person commenting on your crush’s post by posting flying kiss emoticons, you prefer posting angry smileys under your envious nature, which is embarrassing and so unlike a stalker behaviour.
  • If your friend does not reply to your posts or texts, then you try to contact him or her anyhow, you try to trace out his or her daily lifestyle and customs, to ensure where he or she regularly visits, to have a conversation with him or her that was left incomplete.

Always make sure that your relationship does not make you a stalker. Always maintain a gap between infatuation and normal love, before you end up getting the title of a stalker.
