In any case, the more sincere they seem, the creepier they are.

Female stalkers, by contrast, are likely to be portrayed sympathetically, and typically portrayed as charming or cute.
This can be a minor character who is seduced to evil by the Tragic Dream of being able to get who they want.
If the stalker manages to score because he's a stalker, it's because the target believes Stalking Is Love.
