Have you ever experienced a 'fatal attraction'?
Have you ever gone all psycho about someone to the point where it actually affected the person's life?
Or have you ever been the victim of a psycho obsession?
Reading the Fatal Attraction thread made me think of my own horrid experience. I was very young (18) and coming to terms with being gay and a girl I fucked once became obsessed with me...messing up my car, spying, spreading rumors, calling at all times of the night.... It was very creepy.
Eventually she found someone else to obsess about and moved on.

I'll admit that I did boil an ex's bunny.

Nothing at that level, no. I did become very irrational and possessive once when I fell in love with my "straight" grad school roommate after he slept with me, and I remain deeply ashamed of that. But I did nothing worse than object to his girlfriend from out of town staying over for weekends in our suite--I did not boil a bunny or kidnap a child or anything.

I have planned and executed elaborate revenge schemes that I'm too ashamed to describe here.

Not their life, just mine.

R6, did the revenge work? At least share the revenge, it's an anon board!

Many years ago I went a bit psycho over a relationship. No boiled bunnies or kidnapping but I realized that I was capable of murder.
I moved a couple of thousand miles away, got a shrink and eventually returned to normal. It never happened again.

Yes. Don't ever date a cop. I had to transfer to a new university to get away.

When I was younger I would become overly obsessive about people. No, not in a "fatal attraction" kind of way but in a way which was overly dramatic and certainly a nuisance to others. I was not a stalker by any means. Far from that. But I was in love with the drama of desire. And I truly wish I hadn't been so caught up in it.
But, hey, that's who I was at the time. A drama queen.
All I can do is be very grateful that I got over it.

R15 I think I know what you mean. But ever since the internet and the stories I read I feel better about it. I also get to caught up about someone or something and get obsessed and focus only on that, the positive part was that all this "obsession" and time involved got me people out of my league. I think I have a thing for a challenge like I like to date guys who live far away and are unique in some ways. I get a rush from that.

There was a fatal attraction right on DL a few years ago. Some guy with a foot fetish had a fatal attraction for a host of some TV shopping channel.
Does anyone else remember it?

Victim of psycho obsession here.
It was a really bitter terrible breakup and then without warning I bumped into him about 3yrs later at a local Walgreens. We stopped and stared at each other awkwardly out of recognition and then I immediately high tailed it out of there, got in my car, and took off back home. Without saying a word he got in his truck and followed me home then stayed parked outside my place for the next 5 hours before I called a cop that lived in my area (father of a friend) to 'escort' him the hell away from me. He kept showing up off and on for hours at a time just sitting there in his car. I would look out the window occasionally day after day and there he'd be...just sittin' like a weirdo. He never came to the door or made contact and I no longer had his number, but 2 or 3 more confrontations outside my house with the neighborhood officer (who then threatened to arrest if it happened again) was enough to scare him off for good. Total asshole...
So, nothing life threatening but still creepy as hell. He'd be out there at all hours of the day and night. We weren't even together all that long and I remember being so pissed off that he had the audacity to stalk me after we had such a bad falling out and *he* was the one to end it. Now I wonder if he had some mental health problem all this time.

I had a fatal attraction to a high school classmate. We were both 14 and freshmen. He was a bad boy type -- and a major asshole -- but he was also gorgeous! We had one class together (English) and since we were seated alphabetically he sat in front of me. But we never conversed. I was an outcast in school and he wouldn't have bothered with me. But oh how I enjoyed looking at him, especially when he sat sideways in his desk. He had a nice profile.
Anyway, I became obsessed with him. At first, I just jacked off to him and fantasize about what he looked like naked and about having sex with him. But eventually my thoughts turned to torturing him, especially when he spurned me after I tried to make small talk a few times. My love then turned to hate, but weirdly I was still sexually attracted to him. I began having thoughts of killing him and cutting off his penis and keeping it in jar next to my bed so that I could look at it when I went to sleep. I even brought a knife to school a couple times with the intent to stab him repeatedly in the locker room, since I'd noticed that after homeroom we both took the same path through the boy's locker room to our respective first period classes. But I could never catch up to him 'cause he was always several yards ahead of me and he walked fast.
Not surprisingly, at the time I was also experiencing major depression, which was a result of having been sexually/physically abused as a child. I also began having suicidal thoughts. I was eventually hospitalized after a suicide attempt before I could carry out my homicidal plan. I spent a year in a psych hospital, where I was heavily medicated and received round-the-clock counseling. After that I was released to a residential home, where I thrived and lived for the remainder of my high school years and attended an alternative school.
That was the only time I ever had any homicidal tendencies. I'd always been a kind, gentle, quiet individual, but something about him set me off.

R19 In this situation you just being a pathological liar would be the best kind of scenario.

I lived with a BF who used to be jealous as hell. One rare night when I was allowed out with friends, he saw a friend kiss me a friendly goodnight downstairs as I got out of a cab. When I got upstairs, I couldn't find him. I went around the apartment calling his name, finally thinking he'd gone out. I relaxed in front of the TV, and he suddenly stepped into the room. He'd been hiding behind the living room drapes. He questioned me about the guy I kissed for hours. Finally, a few months later, we broke up and I moved into my own place. I'd come home to find him sitting outside my apt in his car. It was creepy as hell. I truly thought he might snap on me.

R20, what? I don't get what you're trying to say.

R19, it was a bit too over the top to be believable.

R23, I suppose, but those were my thoughts at the time. It's not like I went through with it, and even if I were to catch up to him. I think I reveled more in the thought than the action, if that makes any sense. In my bedroom, I interacted the stabbing scenario many times, and one time for art class I drew a portrait of a boy stabbing another boy to death. This was '94 before Columbine and all that, so I wasn't pulled aside or anything. My art teacher just said, "You're very expressive."
