I saw that there was a similar thread about stalkers but (I think) it closed and I'm trying to make this thread a tad bit different...
I've never had a stalker and so I cannot really understand the feelings that come when there truly is someone following you.

So my basic question is: "Would you rather have the stalker stalk you from afar and they won't really engage in a conversation or would you rather have a stalker that does come towards you and is trying to involve their life in yours."

(Please do not say things like "I don't want a stalker." We all don't want one but assume that your in a position where there is a stalker)

I would personally like a stalker that would watch from afar (no contact whatsoever) but I would keep a baseball bat in my room (just in case....)
