There's this guy at school who likes me and its been going on now for about a couple of weeks and now its getting to the point where he's actually scaring me. He's suddenly "there" out of no where and he calls me all the time, he won't leave me alone, and its starting to scare me, its like he's stalking me and won't leave me alone. All my friends think I'm overreacting and say its all in my head, but I don't think it is. I don't know what to do I've tried telling him to leave me alone but he doesn't listen. I get so scared whenever I see him. Am I overreacting?

Tell a teacher in your school, principal, or guidance counselor as soon as possible. They tend to take these things pretty seriously. The moment you tell someone to leave you alone and they don't, it is a serious problem.
And to answer your question, I do not think you are overreacting. So tell someone as soon as you can. I dealt with a major stalker two years ago and it really scared me....and I learned that nothing should be taken lightly, if you feel uncomfortable about something, tell someone who can help you as soon as possible.
This could easily be something completely harmless, but better safe than sorry.
I think you have good reason to be scared girlie and you are not overreacting at all. It is natural to want to protect yourself and make sure you are safe.
So do as Siren said and go talk to a teacher or a counsellor who can maybe talk to this boy and tell him nicely that he should leave you alone. Tell your parents as well so they can keep a lookout for you.
If things do not let up, you might have to consider some serious action like telling his parents about your fears and asking them to do something about him or even going to the police.
I also hope this is just harmless but it is always better to be safe than to be sorry.
