In addition to describing the real obsessive watcher (maybe sexual or maybe hater) who cannot be discouraged by acceptable social means -- the slang usage more commonly refers to...

The Politically Correct way to publicly cast "criminal" suspicion on an undesirable person before your "real" friends think you find the undesirable person's friendship or sexual interest acceptable.

Also a term used in a popular juvenile game of the social elite similar to the 1600's "witch hunt" "game". The idea is if enough members of the social elite call someone a stalker then members of the opposite sex will prove their acknowledgment of your elitism by taking punitive action against the one called stalker. The rules of the game include the concepts that

(1) the fewer and faster the punitive action, the more elite the members who originally designated the target called stalker -- or at least the closer they are to being able to join that group, e.g. tentative acknowledgment by the elite.

(2) the sooner someone joins in calling stalker against a selected target the more accepted they are among the elite group and their followers -- or at least they are conscious and accepting of the righteous rule of the elite and are less likely to be a target of some social game themselves.

(3) all the classic benefits of the "pecking order" modified by the idea that the farther you drive someone down, the higher you raise yourself up.

(4) all the joys of future lawyers and politicians in doing something deliciously evil while staying within the boundaries normally described as legal and saintly.

(5) you can't trust enough people after leaving high school or college to make the game work any more.
All the Cheerleaders said the new kid who skipped a grade and had a hairlip was a stalker who peek in their bathroom. So the football team caught him after school and cut off his nuts. But nobody got arrested after the police heard what the cheerleaders said even though the new kid was only at school one day. A bunch of us gave the Prom Queen and King his nuts to use as fuzzy dice when they drove to the dance. What a laugh. Such losers should just kill themselves before their show their faces at OUR school.

It seems to be that the term 'stalker' no longer means what it used to mean--the pathological ANONYMOUS follower and tab-keeper of another person or persons (A detective who has not been hired and has no real reason to follow someone). The old definition also would say that a 'stalker' often has an imaginary connection with the stalkee.

HOWEVER, common usage of the term, along with the term 'creepy', has come to be used as a defense mechanism for anyone seeking justification for not being attracted socially or physically to someone else.

This term is nearly as overdiagnosed as ADHD is in children. Any women who think an undesirable man might be interested in her will almost always automatically label him a stalker.

Note: Far too many idiots think they're more important than they really are. Real stalkers seek out beautiful, interesting, and often famous members of the attractive gender. 90 percent of the people who use the term couldn't get a real stalker to save their lives.
A hot girl who follows you around and shows up at your door is a friend.

An ugly girl who follows you around and shows up at your door is now, according to most, a stalker.

A hot guy who gives you flowers is a romantic.

An ugly guy who gives you flowers is a stalker.

I did not know what a STALKER is until I become one. A stalker can sit in a car nearby a persons house for hours straight. A STALKER poisons the victim's WLAN ARP table and sneaks into the person's Facebook account and takes notes about the persons friends and comments. A STALKER observes who visit the person and feel enormous jealousy towards them. The stalkers would make quite good private detectives.

Most notorious STALKERS build a shrine for their victim and plaster the victim's photographs on the wall around the shrine. They are the REAL PSYCOPATHS. More mild cases just write definitions into URBANDICTIONARY.
Me: Oh, fuck. I became a stalker. I cannot help sneaking around her apartment.

A person who live in the "zone", the area around Chernobyl after its second meltdown. They are illegally there and are bound to no laws. they kill who they want and then suffer the consensuses of that choice. Many are there to get rich off the artifacts and anomalies that where created by the blowouts of the power plant. Others are criminals that have fled there to escape from the law. The Ukrainian and Russian military's are constantly trying to eradicate the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s but usually have no luck, there are just to many of them and they are under manned.
NOTE- videogame
Pavel- Dude, that guy over there is a S.T.A.L.E.R. he just came out of the zone.
