AIBU to think my friend is stalking me

A bit of an exaggeration but my friend seems to spookily know when I arrive home and always seems to know if i'm out. At first I put it down to co-incidence but now it seems to happen to much for it to be a coincidence

I've checked all my facebook settings but they don't show my location.

Another really weird thing is that a little while ago I had a exchange student lets call him Pete, staying with me who used to walk into town every morning to get to college. My friend said to me once, "Does Pete always wear that checked shirt, hasn't he got any others?" Pete did seem to wear his checked shirt a lot but i'd never even introduced her to him and they hadn't met?????

AIBU to wonder whats going on?

It's bizzare! Almost like she can see my house from where she lives (a few streets away but she can't see my house from there)

She's obviously obsessed with you and has installed a spy cam in your house.

I would have said it was maybe find my friends or something on your phone. Do you have an internet doorbell/baby monitor?

lol at spy cam. Don't have internet doorbell.

How do I know if i'm available on "find my friends"?

TestingTestingWonTooFree - can other people (not in your home) log into baby/home monitors?

Although wouldn't explain Pete's shirt.

Did you not ask

Try an experiment op - give your phone to your DP or someone when they go out and see if she says anything.

I didn't ask her when she asked about "Pete" no. I was a bit stunned to be honest.

Do you unwittingly tell her about your movements? Ie. Your plans for the evening etc.

Do you have a partner she talks to?

Find my iPhone?

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow1 Fri 22-Feb-19 19:58:06

How does Find my iPhone work? Could that be it. I'm not on snapchat.

What do you mean by she knows when you’re out?

Yes, massively.

This is your friend you're talking about, so why haven't you asked them?

100 or 200 randomers on MN aren't going to be able to give you anything other than different suggestions.

WorraLiberty Fri 22-Feb-19 20:08:59

And I get you might have been stunned about the Pete thing, so didn't ask your friend at the time, but you said that was a 'little while ago', so you've had plenty of opportunity to say, "Hold on a minute X, how do you know what shirts Pete wore?"

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow1 Fri 22-Feb-19 20:09:55

We've both got iphones yes
