While reading Katie J.M. Baker’s recent Jezebel piece, “A Tale of Mutual Cyberstalking,” I found myself on board with everything she was saying. I was practically fist pumping by the end of her story. A testament to the quality of her writing. But at the same time, I don’t agree with her. It’s not normal to obsessively cyberstalk — either your ex or your ex’s new partner –which is what her piece is about. She writes:

“I was immediately hooked. At first, my stalking was synonymous with shit-talking her to my friends; I was the one who broke up with my ex, but I wasn’t over our relationship, and I was hurt that he was falling in love with someone else so quickly. As time passed and I moved on myself, I stopped criticizing her but continued to keep tabs on her life. My obsession with Googling her and monitoring her various social media feeds felt almost compulsive; I didn’t know why I was doing it anymore, or what I was getting out of the experience exactly, only that I didn’t want to stop.”  Keep reading »

“I Googled him right away! And it was shocking, ’cause he was like two completely different people. I was just in awe of his ability and his talent. And then to know him on the other side of it, and how sweet and simple and loving he is…You know how people say that when you meet somebody you love, you feel at home?”

– Kate Hudson, looking ridiculously gorgeous on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, opens up about the humble beginnings of her relationship with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. After meeting him at one of his shows, Kate did what any of us would do: she went straight to Google to get the scoop on her new crush. Now the couple has an adorable baby named Bingham, and splits their time between LA and London, where Kate gets her lifestyle tips not from Google, but Gwyneth Paltrow: “She’s been my go-to about where to get things done—grocery shopping, a good mani-pedi, you know, all that.” Quick question: how do I join this Famous Blondes Who Marry Rock Stars And Get Pedicures Together In London Club? Because damn, life dream status. [Us Weekly]

Cut All The Cyberstalking, Girls!

A new survey of more than 800 college students found that over 60 percent of admitted cyberstalkers were female. More than 30 percent ‘fessed up to hacking into their S.O.’s email accounts. Researchers also found that women were way more likely than men to stalk Facebook or check cellphone histories. While I can say I am anti-snooping, I know there are times when perfectly logical, not insane women are put in a position where cyberstalking is the correct course of action. Luckily, I have never been in that position and I hope I never will. To all of the other females engaging in extraneous cyberstalking — cut that crap out! Sigh. What do these results say about us? That we’re more insecure than men? That we’re more jealous? I propose an antidote to cyberstalking. If you are feeling the urge to stalk your sweetie online, Google yourself instead. It’s totally addictive, narcissistic, and harmful to no one. Problem solved. [New Scientist] Keep reading »
