This answer was rated:

I live in Dothan, Alabama. I have a friend who is telling people that I am stalking her because she decided that I cramped her style with another group of friends. I am single and don't have many friends, therefore, I eat out a lot by myself; hoping to meet an available bachelor. I'm a little overweight but not unattractive. I am very shy so it makes it that much harder to meet people. I hold down a good living and am an honest person. On a nuimber of occassions, I have ran into people that I know while dining out. One asked me if I was following her (she was actually behind me in line) and another made a comment that she had seen me twice during the week. Is there any legal action that I can take to protect myself against the harrasment that she has caused in life? I think she even has taken it so far that my pastor believes it. I have been seeking a new church and new friends. I need to know what I can do to get my life back and expose the lie that she has everybody belieiing ? I've even considered moving to another state just so that I can go to the store and not wonder if I'm going to get arrested because I run into someone that I know.
What do you think you are being investigated for and who do you think is investigating you?

,I don't know that I am. I am not familiar with our laws and am a bit paranoid because of the situation.

There aren't any laws being broken based on what you have put here.

Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can really do about what she is doing either. You could ask a court to issue an injunction against her, but I don't think a judge is likely to do it without more specific acts on her part.

One night at church, I had just talked with the pastor and this same friend had just walked by. She acted suspicious and got on the phone like she was talking about me and I watched her walk over to another area of the church. Curiosity got the best of me. When I turned around, my pastor looked at me, backed up and looked at the camera overhead and looked back at me. I was curious but definitely not stalking her. I was totally crushed. My pastor out of all people, I couldnt believe he had just done that. I guess if she had already talked to him, then it probably looked all the more like I was. They are treating me like a criminal. Is there anything I can do to stop this. Was there anything wrong with curiosly watching her like that? Obviously, I value my job and my life. I've tried to stay away from these people as much as possible.

No, there's nothing wrong with what you did but there is also nothing you can do to stop them from talking about you if they are.
