10 Worst Things That Could Happen When Stalking Someone Online

Because it happens even to the best of us.

Don't deny it. You’ve been there. Sneakily scrolling through your crush’s posts (who, beeteedubs, isn’t your friend) and you accidentally double-tap a photo. The heart that momentarily appears, signaling you’ve liked the picture, also represents your real heart, which seems to have stopped beating for a second or two. Here are just some of the worst possible things that can happen while you are on an online stalking spree!

1. As you're scrolling down and looking at the person's old photos (like 27w-old!!!) and accidentally pressing "like" or even worse "unlike" right afterwards. Remember they will be notified either way.

2. Trying to find out who "favorited" a tweet or a photo so you press that button but ending up including yourself in the list?

4. Clicking "Unfollow" on Twitter, and your friend's account is private. How do you explain why you've sent a follow request again?
