Stalkee

noun Affixation
The victim of a stalker or a person that has become an object of the intense interest of another person 'Stalkee' is formed by taking the verb 'stalk' and combining it with the noun ending '-ee' meaning 'a person receiving the action' similar to how the word 'invitee' comes from the verb 'invite'. It is used amongst college students to colloquially reference a person in which another person takes a lot of interest, to the point of forming a fan club, learning birthdays, favorites and other obscure facts, etc., without the two of them ever meeting or only meeting briefly, but not in a potentially harmful or disturbing way. The word was probably coined because there is not really a close word to that specific meaning in English besides 'victim', which has a much more negative and harmful connotation.
