Daniel is being stalked by a man he met on the dating app, Grindr.
Although there was no romantic chemistry, they decided to remain friends. When Daniel was having financial problems, his new friend offered to help him out, even letting Daniel live with him to help him save money.
After he moved in, Daniel was regularly questioned about his whereabouts, and his friend started drama within Daniel’s friend group to isolate him. As the situation escalated, Daniel was sexually propositioned in person, over text, and through social media by his friend turned stalker.
His stalker exposed himself to Daniel and played loud pornography from his room. When Daniel confronted him, he invited multiple men over and made sure Daniel could hear them having sex. Daniel left the apartment and sought support as a victim of stalking and sexual harassment.
Daniel faced his stalker in court during a protection order hearing and discovered that his stalker also crossed sexual boundaries with some of his friends.
