Stalking is a pattern of unwanted, repeated behaviour that leaves you feeling scared or distressed. You don’t have to be threatened with violence to be a victim of stalking. Any kind of persistent, unwanted contact that causes distress is still stalking and is unacceptable. But things like romantic comedies can normalise this sort of behaviour, and you may not recognise it as stalking.
Sometimes stalking behaviours can seem small on their own. But when they’re combined in a way that follows the FOUR pattern: Fixated, Obsessed, Unwanted, Repeated, then you should record it and report it before it escalates further.
Watch our video to see how these seemingly small, seemingly harmless gestures can escalate to something far more sinister.
