The focus of this research was to examine the influence of gender on college students’ stalking scripts. One hundred fifty-four participants from a university located in the southern United States generated a narrative account of what occurs during stalking. Women were expected to generate more examples of ambiguous, non-aggressive, behaviors than were men, as well as to generate more coping strategies on the part of the target. Results overall revealed a high degree of similarity in content of generated stalking behaviors as a function of gender. However, women generated hyper-intimacy behaviors and mediated contact as part of their scripts significantly more often than did men. Women were also significantly more likely to generate a coping strategy than men.
