Re: New ex stalking me at online dating site...is this a thing?
I had a woman I had dated a short time start doing that on a dating site once, I actually thought it was funny and kind of pitiful. As a guy I thought it was no big deal, as a woman you need to be more concerned.
Her approach was to contact me using a fake profile, then lead the discussion toward things related to our short relationship, then blast me for my views. I always knew it was her right away because she had a very distinct writing style that was easily recognized. At first I played along with her, I thought she needed closure and I was trying to spare her feelings, then it just got annoying and I started blocking her.
Is this "a thing" you ask. Sadly I think it is, the anonymity of social media can give people all kinds of access to others without the fear of being caught. The guy could be angry, he could be curious, he could just be playing immature games, or he could become obsessed with harassing you.
As long as the guys stalking isn't escalating to attempts at personal contact or trying to flame you on social media all you can do is keep blocking him. You can also contact the dating site moderators and report the guy, they may be able to ban his access. If he ever "appears" some place you are and "randomly" runs into you I would file a police report, noting illegal at that point but if it turns into actual stalking you want as much evidence as possible so you can get a restraining order against him if necessary. You should also save any messages he sends you, again just in case.
Or you can have your brother go pound his ass and tell him to leave you alone.
