First thing that came to my mind was Mothman. I know others have said the same. It is a great tale, similar to something Deen Koontz would write.
I, do not, however doubt its veracity.
I have done some thought on the doppleganger concept myself. I have been plaugued (or maybe blessed) with a unique perspective that has led me to
this view, though I won't go into those details on this thread (rather off topic). My thought are that your doppleganger is actually you -- or,
rather, an extension of you. When you daydream or even subconciously ponder on something, if the visualization is intense enough, you can manifest
yourself into it as a solid, or at least partially solid, entity. The reason your doppleganger may not respond to external stimuli (such as friends
waving through the window) is that it may not be aware of those events. If this is all that was, you should be ok. I believe poltergeists to, for
the most part, be a similar manifestation.
As for the mysterious creature in the parking lot, the posters here have given some good, solid advice. Get a bright spotlight, get a camera, and
spend a few nights on patrol, especially if it is raining, as most animals know that rain will allow them to hide better. Whatever you do, don't be
violent to the creature. If it *is* a beast of some sort, it is probably very much on edge and will resort to fight or flight instincts.
My guess as to why the creature was infatuated by the 40 year old guy would be that it was aware it had been spotted before and was wary. If it was
hyper-focused on the guy, it may not have hear you shout out "Hey!".
Of course, this is all just speculation. Be careful, use common sense, and understand that there is a lot more to the world than what we see on a
