Is it wrong to "stalk" someone online?
3 days ago · · Need Advice,
When I say "stalk" I don't mean contacting them or trying to locate them or dig up harmful information or anything with mal-intent. I just mean like looking through their Facebook profile and stuff like that.
I have a huge crush on someone that I don't ever see in-person anymore. I really admire them and think about them often but I don't want to bother them with texts and stuff because they're the type that would be too nice to say they're not interested in talking. I know it's creepy to spend a lot of time looking at someone's social media, but it's hard to resist the urge to pull up pictures of a person when it just takes a couple clicks to do and this person is always on your mind.
I've mostly been able to resist the urge to do this type of thing but it can be quite frustrating. And whenever I do give in and look them up online, it always makes me feel happy to see their face or hear their voice. It feels like such a relief. Obviously if this person knew I did this type of thing they might be creeped out, but is there any harm done if I keep it to myself? I probably won't ever talk to them again, so it won't affect any future interactions we have. Is looking at their pictures just making things worse for me by elongating the crush I have on them?
