    "Stalking (from Middle English stalk: from Old English bestealcian; akin to Old English stelan to steal) is a legal term for repeated harassment or other forms of invasion of a person's privacy in a manner that causes fear to its target.

    Statutes vary between jurisdiction but may include such acts as:

    * repeated physical following;

    * unwanted contact (by letter or other means of communication);

    * observing a person's actions closely for an extended period of time; or

    * contacting family members, friends, or associates of a target inappropriately;

    * cyberstalking "

    If you stalk the person they could call the police on you and have you arrested and put in jail. Dr. Phil had a guest on a couple of weeks ago and the girl was stalking Beyonce. He explaine to her that she should not do it and if she kept doing it she would go to prison where it smelled and was dirty.

    When I hear the word stalk or stalker. I think of someone who is completely obsessed with another person and will always watch, follow and spy on them.

    Maybe the person who said it has a differend defenition. Maybe they meant go to his house and peek in the window while he is talking a shower. Or going to his house to talk to him.

    Stalk means to follow someone where ever they go, to check up on them, drive by their house, come over all the time, show up unexpectedly.

    stalk in that context means to follow around, watch them, find out personal details about them, its a negative term because everyone wants their privacy, and people think stalkers are freaky and some weird people stalk the opposite sex then harrass them later, then go to jail cus of it.

    I believe it means would you follow his every move and keep track of his comings and goings without him knowing you were doing this.

    It's an obsession with an individual where you need to know where they are and what they are doing at all times.

    The question asks if you find 'him' cute enough or handsome enough take an interest in him, sufficient interest to take the initiative.

    stalking is shadowing someone's movements without them knowing they're being watched.

    They mean follow him around and spy on him while trying not to let him know you're doing it. Not reccomended.
