    I echo everybody else's sentiments in that you need to report.

    Better to be safe than sorry hon, you have a gut instinct for a reason and who knows, he may go on to do this/have done this to another person, and may already be under the watchful eye of the Police.

    for you, that situation would unsettle anybody.

    DP said you should definitely make a report. There's not necessarily much that can be done but it's good to have it on file.

    Yep, report it. If he keeps doing it to you or anyone else, and all incidents are reported he may face consequences for being a creepy stalker. How unnerving for you.

    Please don't take offense, but he might have thought you were a working girl. I used to live in a suburb where this was a common occurrence. The guys would wait to see if I walked up to their car. Either way very creepy and definitely report to police.

    Default Would you call the police?

    I'd take offence to that. What an assumption!

    Edit: by assumption, I mean the creepy guys assumption, not yours! Women should be able to catch a bus without people assuming they are working girls!

    That happened to me often years ago. I worked at a restaurant/ bar in the city. I got off the bus and had to walk down a street known for streetwalkers. This was in broad daylight. I often had cars follow me down for a while. One stopped and asked me how much once.

    I'm not sure this is the same situation though. He would have figured early on by her lack of response back that she wasn't a streetwalker.

    Thanks so much everyone, I called up as it's way too hot for the half hour walk to the station with both kids. Definitely going to be extra careful for the next little while, work is only a 5 minute walk away and now I feel scared about it! I'll drive tonight.

    As for the prostitute thing, no chance! There's only families around here, I live directly opposite a primary school. Also, I dress like a grandma. The whole thing happened over about a ten minute period too, so way longer than anyone would pursue that I imagine.

    I have had my fill of creepy men!

    That is so creepy. I'm glad you reported it. Did the police say if there have been other complaints about a man following people in the area?

    I'd wonder if it was a case of mistaken identity.

    So glad you reported this.
    I think it's really important to listen to your gut/instinct/whatever.
    I hope the police took your concerns seriously and follow up with you if need be.
