Favorite hangout zone

If you know everything about the daily schedule of the person you are interested in then make an appointment with a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

If you are a stalker then you want 100% attention from your love interest. generally a stalker exhibits irrational and violent behavior at the slightest prospect of abandonment. In other words if you have problems understanding the simple word ‘no’ then you are definitely a stalker.
