Well, i will walk faster, try to grab something in my hand which i can use to defend myself. I will stare that guy in his eye too. I read from a police survey that if you found a starnger following you, don't be nervous. You grab something on your hand first such as umbrella or key, then look at him and ask something such as "what time is it?" or just simply say something like "today's weather is a little bit cold, isn't it?". Normally these people won't attack you anymore because you had seen their faces (unless they kill you after that).

Wow, that's creepy. O.o Hopefully none of us will have to face such a situation. xD I probably wouldn't let him know that I know that he's following me. I would definitely walk a lot faster, take a lot of sharp turns, and if I have a phone, pull it out and call someone randomly so he knows that I have something I can use to find help. I would try to lose him as fast as I can, and if possible, go to a place where there are other people. I wouldn't confront him because if he tried talking to me, I would have to do that anyway. o_o I wouldn't stare at him either, because then he would know that I've noticed him. There's no use in bringing my own doom to myself by going into an argument with him about what he's doing there and stopping walking and preventing an opportunity for me to get to a safe place for this. =P

Oh my God! That's scary. I can't just face them and fight back because I know I won't win. Maybe I will just pretend I don't see them yet and try to walk fast without them to be alarm. I will try to go to some place where I know there are many people.
