I am in deep trouble, guys. I am in my 2nd year of university, in a small medical radiation program. There are 50 students in each year, for a total of 200 students. We are a very close-knit community. Anyway, our program has a website with an anonymous forum that only students can access. It's a lot like Macrumors - people discuss anything. Since it's anonymous, posters can write rude and nasty things without worrying. Anyway, I discovered this forum over the summer and spent a few months posting on it. I probably posted four to five hundred times. I have a very characteristic way of writing, as I use certain emoticons and phrases. As my 2nd year approached, I decided to stop using the forum, as it was really distracting. I was looking forward to making friends and coming out of the closet as a gay guy once I returned to uni. When I did return, I found that another guy in my program (we'll call him "Dave"), his girlfriend and his friends (7 or 8 of them) seemed to barely acknowledge me. They almost seemed creeped out by me. I found it strange, but figured it was just a reflection of my poor social skills. It was especially strange since they are really nice people, though they've always just been acquaintances. Flash forward nearly three months. I am sitting at my desk, reading reviews of the Macbook Air 11 incher and the phone rings. I pick it up, and it's Dave. I'm surprised, since he has never called before. He says: "I am going to be very blunt. I know that you're stalking me." He sounded so serious that I was just like "WHAT?" He went on to explain that he and everyone knew that I had been stalking him and posting about him on the anonymous chat forum. Apparently, these stalker posts were very similar to my writing style. So I immediately unblocked the forum on my website and went on. I looked up posts that referenced his name, and found over a hundred results. All of these posts expressed an obsessive yearning to be Dave's boyfriend. Most were silly, like "mmmm, I love Dave's curly blonde hair. I would love to put his feet in my lap and massage them." But some of them were creepy and invasive, with details about his family members' names and other private things. These obsessive posts were mostly posted around 4 am, and seemed fixated with certain body parts of Dave's, like his hair and feet. The writer would sometimes upload pictures of Dave and comment about how "cute" he was, write fake scripts about seducing him and ending his relationship with his girlfriend. The scariest part is that these posts were very similar to my own style! I'm not surprised at all that I was suspected. My friend accused me of posting those things, but once I told her sincerely that I didn't do it, she apologized. In a small program like this, rumours spread fast, and I've been branded a stalker. I don't have the courage to go to class and face my peers, and I don't think I'll be able to come out at uni. without confirming their suspicions. What do I say to him when I see him next?
