Am I a Stalker?
Every now and then, I get the urge to Google people. Old boyfriends, for one. I try to find out everything I can, and the DH comes over and asks what I am doing, and I show him, and then we Google his old girlfriends, and then he gets bored, and then I call my sister and tell her what I've learned, and then we waste enormous amounts of time googling every guy we've ever dated or thought about dated, old friends from high school and beyond, just to see what's up. Is this normal behavior, or am I just a stalker at heart? BTW, it's easier to Google men. Their names don't change. I never thought that the name change in marriage would help protect you when it came to internet privacy, but apparently it does. The thing is, I'm not searching for these people because I have any interest in actually spending large amounts of time with them. There is no way I am pining for old boyfriends, and there is a reason I've lost touch with most of these people. No really malicious reasons, just our lives have taken different paths over the years. No, what I want, really, is just an "update sheet" of sorts - just a little paragraph showing if they have kids, what they're doing with themselves nowadays, where (generally, not specifics) they are living. Is this weird? Does anyone else do this, or do I need to seek professional help for my stalkerish tendencies?
