The word stalker is commonly used when referring to unwanted, obsessive behaviour displayed by an individual who has developed a type of obsession with another individual. Stalking behaviour is similarly related to harassment and displaying characteristics of intimidation towards another person. However, the word stalking does display different various connotations, specifically in relation to psychology, psychiatry and additionally in some legal jurisdictions and in some cases, particularly legal cases, is branded as a criminal offence.  

However, there have been some issues in defining and similarly in branding the term stalker on different people who seemingly display evidence of this type of behaviour. The term stalker was notably first used to condemn the behaviour of those individuals who displayed an ‘unhealthy’ obsession with celebrities, defined in a general harassment sense. The type of behaviour can additionally be defined in terms of an individual who repeatedly follows, watches or shows any other type of harassment to another person.

Other behaviours include hoarding information of memento’s about the person that the individual has developed an unhealthy obsession with. Generally, the purpose of stalking is to attempt to force a relationship with someone who is unwilling or otherwise unavailable. Unlike other crimes, which usually involve one act, stalking is a series of actions that occur over a period of time. Even though stalking itself is illegal, the actual actions that contributes to the stalking, such as calling, sending gifts and emailing, are in fact legal. Though these particular actions in themselves do not actually cause any harm, if however, they are repeated on a series of time, there becomes a breech or invasion in an individual’s privacy, which can prove to be very damaging and at times has proven to be fatal.

Is a guy/girl after breaking up with his/her girlfriend/boyfriend who still tries to be around his/her girlfriend/boyfriend. Someone who continues to look after you even though you don't want to. And the person follows you almost everywhere you go. Thats the meaning if I am not wrong.

The word stalked has two distinct meanings. On one hand it is botanically related meaning 'pedunculate' that is, growing from or having a stalk or punduncle. On the other hand the word stalked is a verb in the past tense meaning to repeatedly harass or invade someone's privacy in a manner that deliberately causes fear in its target.

In this context stalking may include repeatedly tailing someone, forcing unwanted contact on them, observing someone's actions intently for a prolonged period of time, contacting friends, family members or associates of the target in an inappropriate manner and cyber stalking. Many celebrities have suffered from the unwanted attentions of crazed fans that have turned into stalkers. Some examples include Pamela Anderson, Brad Pitt, Anna Kournikova and Hillary Duff to name a few.

The word 'stalk' is used both as a noun and as a verb and its meaning as a noun is completely different from what it's meaning as a verb.

When you are using it as a noun it conveys the idea of a thin stem that plays the supportive role to a leaf, fruit or flower. The word can also be used for a long thin structure that plays a supportive role to hold the organs of some animals and then join it to another part of the body. The sentence that can make the meaning of the term very clear in this context is following: Crabs have their eyes on stalks.

When you are using the word as a verb it conveys the idea of the phenomenon of moving slowly and quietly when you intend to catch or kill somebody. Given below is as a sentence that can illustrate the meaning in this context: I photographed a lion stalking a deer.

The word can also be used figuratively when somebody illegally follows somebody for a long period which usually frightens the person who has been stalked
