Okay, up until a few months ago my friend was normal (in the casual sense of the word)

But I have noticed a few changes in him, he still talks the same, likes the same things etc but now he is completely obsessed with a girl who makes videos on You Tube. At first I thought he just really liked her videos, but he has grown quite obsessed and now I'm scared. He searches her parents on Linkedin, Facebook, people search websites. He wonders about her daily schedule, says their going to be married etc etc

I was reading on the internet and it seems like he can be diagnosed as an intimacy seeking stalker. What can I say to stop this before it gets worse. He can be quite calculating and I am afraid that people will die.

Please help me

I don't know how serious this post is, but if this is happening it sounds pretty scary. Why would your friend obsess over someone he seen on YouTube? This is what I don't understand. Someone who doesn't even directly speak to him. And looking for information on the Internet about this person!?Sometimes being direct with a person will snap them out of stupidity. By no means am I saying your friend is stupid, but what he's doing sounds a bit off. In my experience it sounds like he thinks he found the idealistic woman.. And he can't let her getaway.. Pretty scary. Hopefully though, he'll obsess over the next youtube vixen and move forward.

I was searching online and I found that his behavior matches something called Intamacy Seeking Stalking

Really ? One person. Remember this if one day you pick up the paper and see the headline "actress and former YouTube star J*** ********** stabbed to death in Los Angeles home"
