English term or phrase:stalker
Hey, a co-worker just asked me a question that left me a bit perplexed... If someone was stalking me, I'd probably say "alguien me está persiguiendo" or something to that effect. However, he's had to call the same person about 6 times today and wanted to make a joke by saying, "Hey, I'm really not a stalker, I just need to talk to you again..." Is there a noun we can use in Spanish to describe the person who is persiguiéndole a alguien? Does my question make sense? I looked in Simon & Schuster´s, and it said cazador al acecho, but that doesn´t sound right to me. I appreciate your ideas!
Gracias, David. Son muy buenas sugerencias. También estoy de acuerdo con Ana Julia y mgonzalez que "No te estoy persiguiendo" y "no es que te esté persiguiendo..." suenan mejor en este contexto. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
