I have recently become prey to a stalker. It’s not the first time and in the world of social media, it certainly won’t be the last. I often wonder why people feel the need to try and ruin other people’s happiness. Jealousy, bitterness or just pure hatred towards an individual and their contentment? I think on this occasion this individual just does not want anyone to be happy and with me recently getting engaged I think she felt the need to go on Facebook and set up a fake false profile and send me this message: -
I reported this to Facebook who typically did nothing as contacting Facebook is harder than contacting the SAS but the message has been reported to the Feds and the IP address will be tracked. My message back to her was read the following evening whilst we were at a party and she then blocked me. I refused to block her as why should I and in fact myself and my fiancé both agreed not to but allow her continue with her drivel. Typically, she did not reveal herself and continued to hide behind her stalker mask. We, on the other hand, knew exactly who she was and carried on drinking champagne and enjoying our night.
Typically and predictably another troll was unable to stop herself, this one happened to be from my
fiance's sister, no less and as sure as Christmas arrives each year whilst having a few drinks out on New Year’s Eve, here came the message, this time however, it was by text. I’ve blocked her number out as I’m not doing this blog to name and shame her but here is the text:-
Again, we got no response and continued with our New Year’s Eve.
These messages were totally premeditated with only one aim in mind, to hurt and destroy. The comments were clearly against me personally based on jealousy and hatred. I, however, am a strong enough person to never let fake people bother me. I actually pity these two particular trolls as they have both clearly nothing better to do on New Year's Eve than make up false profiles, to create disharmony against their fellow sex and their happiness.
Trolling has been in the media recently. There was an article in the Daily Mail about the Feds having a team of Troll Hunters purely dedicated to tracking these people down to stop them spreading their disease.
I have nothing but respect for my fellow sex. I am constantly telling women I know and meet that they look stylish or I love their shoes, handbag etc. and to be fair I’ve also had women come up to me saying the same. Then there are the total bitches. The women who look other women up and down, criticising them, bitching about them behind their back and are eaten up with jealousy.
There was a girl I knew who was exactly like this. She created false profiles, even became friends with her ex under another name so she could stalk him and keep a check on what he was doing. She had so many false Facebook profiles I’m not sure how she could remember all the passwords, never mind keep up with which character she was. A few drinks later she would then stalk her ex and his new girlfriend, whilst making up more false accounts to become another make-believe person. I have personally had experience of her drunken jealous rants under fake profiles. She even made a profile up for her dog. Yes, I even had a dog stalk me.
There was another occasion when my profile was being stalked on Twitter by young 15-year-old kids who took a dislike to my son. One of these girls sent me a friend request on Facebook last night. Maybe she was the troll who sent the previous messages? Who knows and frankly who cares but I wouldn't put it past her either.
What I would say to anyone who is being tracked and hunted like this is, as Rhianna said, ‘Don’t let the Bastards get you down.’
These people are here for one purpose only and that is to ruin and destroy other people’s happiness. If anything, we should feel sorry for them. I personally don’t even feel that. I'm just going to write about them and move on. (Define Relationship blog &R)
