Some more forgiving depictions of this trope rely on the stalker simply being too shy to approach the object of his or her affections directly, and is otherwise harmless.

** Angel in both his evil and not-evil incarnations. He met and fell in love with Buffy when she was 15. He then stalked her for a year before revealing himself and he's still up it on the fifth season of ''Angel'', despite being burdened with a desk job! (He has "a source" keeping tabs on her in Italy.)

Added DiffLines:

** Even more so in the sequel ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', where Peter takes to watching Gwen from rooftops after they break up. We get this exchange:
---> '''Gwen:''' Have you been following me?
---> '''Gwen:''' How often?
---> '''Peter:''' Just once a day. Sometimes... Sometimes more.

** In flashbacks, Naruto's father Minato is shown stalking Naruto's mother Kushina. He watches over her, but doesn't actually step in when she gets bullied because he has faith that she can take care of herself. The one time she's outmatched, when she's kidnapped by enemy shinobi from another village, he's there to rescue her and this causes her to fall in love with him.

* Played with the usual amount of taste and seriousness ([[PlayedForLaughs that is, none at all]]) in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', where Matoi and Kafuka certainly believe this. Of course, Nozomu kindly informs her that ''[[CrossingTheLineTwice mutual suicide]]'' is true love. And then unfortunately informs her that he'd be happy to kill himself with her at any time, so she took up stalking him while her previous stalking victim started stalking ''her.''

* The obvious ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' rip-off ''Blood Red Moon'' features this, with the the male lead Victor. However he does it... poorly. As ''ObscurusLupa'' put it in her review:

* Siryn, from MarvelComics, specifically said she liked the part where Deadpool was just a romantic admirer. Considering the dangerous life she does lead, a super-powered bodyguard was kinda nice. It did help. Sadly, Deadpool swiftly slid from 'awkward romantic' into 'looney tunes whackjob' and it took a beating or seven before he got it in his brain to leave her alone.

* "I Will Possess Your Heart" by DeathCabForCutie has shades of this. Is it romantic or just creepy?
* The music video for "Girlfriend" by AvrilLavigne. The dude doesn't even try to defend his girlfriend most of the time. Then again, it's apparently supposed to satire that exact attitude "It's okay that ''I'' follow him around and try to steal him from his girlfriend, because she's not as awesome as me!"

* The video for the TaylorSwift's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuNIsY6JdUw You Belong With Me]]" takes some of the StalkerWithACrush vibe out of it by casting the singer as an UnluckyChildhoodFriend, but by the lyrics alone you wouldn't be surprised if the singer had some sort of shrine.
