"Hello. You don't know me..." (Trigger Warning)

The below, from 'Safe For Life' is a quick look into one example of the mind of a predator. It is NOT intended to create un-warranted fear or to be a scare tactic, it is simply study material to help us understand the mindset of the enemy and help overcome the apathy mentality. This is just one example, each situation is different, but it is all interesting and can add value to your safety and awareness. At Protect we have worked with dozens of people who are/have been the target of 'Stalking' situations, from CEO's and celebrities, to everyday women (and several men) of all ages. Although the vast majority of the offenders are known to the targeted person, the below is one example of a look into the mind of an offender not directly known to the target.
At Protect we have a saying: "Although someone else may choose you as a target, you decide whether you become a victim or not".
Hello. You don't know me and you never will, but I know you. I've been watching you.

I've studied your habits and I will make myself known to you…when I see fit. I've
bumped into you at the local supermarket. By the way, you and I share the same taste in
cuisine. It's too bad you're too stuck up and could never see yourself having a romantic
dinner with the likes of me. On the day we meet, you may, however, change your mind. I
know you're intelligent; I'm aware of the books you read. Sometimes I've even read
parts of your book with you. I love to read over your shoulder. I can smell your hair.

We connected once. Remember when you felt uncomfortable for a moment? It was

during your lunch hour break and you were reading beside your favourite tree. I was

there, and you looked confused. I laughed. You prefer the shade there when the sun

seems too strong. When you leave your house at 7:00 am, I am there watching you. I see

you wave to your neighbour as the two of you seem to leave your driveways at the same
time to start your workdays. I don't like him. That's ok though, I'll take care of him. I
know your outfits and I know how you try to accessorize to make it seem like you have

more than you actually own. I can almost tell, based on the weather as to what outfit
you'll pick out for the day. I prefer when you have your hair out as opposed to when you
tie it up on the weekends. I like the changes you made to your bedroom and kitchen. It
certainly is a lot brighter in there. More room in the bedroom closet I've noticed, that's

nice. I walked behind you today as you went window-shopping. You left your purse open, right after you bought the vanilla ice cream. I know how sensitive

you are. I can tell by the movies you rent. You don't notice me; you're too into reading

the backs of the movies. It's ok for now but soon you won't be able to think of
anyone or anything but ME. I will posses every thought you will have. Every emotion

will be with ME in mind. Everyone you see will remind you of ME. Why? Because,
that's the way it should be and so it will become. You will answer to me and don't think
for a moment that your boyfriend scares me. I know the car he drives. I sometimes sit in

it for kicks and watch the both of you through your living room windows when he visits
you. I can take away his brakes if I want, what does he suspect, it's a new car and he
drives way too fast. He might hurt someone with his sloppy driving skills. I could do

everyone a favour and get rid of him. Would you prefer I do it by pills? He trusts me you
know. I've been a baker to him and I could be his next pharmacist. You make me laugh.

I know you know I'm watching. Your silly little schoolyard prank of trying to make me

jealous just doesn't work you stupid bitch! Have a good night's sleep, maybe I'll see you

tomorrow and maybe I'll come up into your bedroom and tuck you in for the evening.
