Men Share Telltale Signs That Someone Is A Creeper[rebelmouse-image 18352551 is_animated_gif=
You ever meet someone and something in you knows there's something sort of wrong about them? We've all heard the jokes about crazy girlfriends, but have you ever actually lived it? Maybe those people who seem wrong in the beginning are the ones that turn out to be creepers later on. One Reddit user asked:
Men of reddit, what are some tell-tale signs that a woman is creepy?
The answers made us laugh out loud from shock more than once. WOW some of these people are ... enthusiastic... yeah.
Table Swap[rebelmouse-image 18352552 is_animated_gif=
This girl I met on tinder had me take her out to a restaurant and then SWITCHED TABLES with her friend. They had been on blind dates and decided to switch. Her friend was not as attractive and I was very uncomfortable. After ordering my food I went to the bathroom for ~10 minutes to contemplate my exit strategy. When I got back they had both left. The other guy asked if he could sit with me so we had dinner and he ate "his" date's enchiladas. It was actually kinda fun after they left
Tighty Whiteys[rebelmouse-image 18347650 is_animated_gif=
Tighty whiteys stapled to her wall as conquests....I've seen it, it's out there.
Unfolding[rebelmouse-image 18352553 is_animated_gif=
When they know more about your errands than what you told her. Extra creepy point is she becomes angry when you deviate from your initial daily plans. Extra extra creepy points if she starts angrily texting you when you change your plans as your day is unfolding.
Texts[rebelmouse-image 18352554 is_animated_gif=
60,000 texts will do it.
What's Your Sign[rebelmouse-image 18352555 is_animated_gif=
She asks you your sign, then giggles, gives crazy eyes, and says "we're compatible"
Flatmates[rebelmouse-image 18352556 is_animated_gif=
I once responded to a flatmate ad but the criteria was single male 30ish years old. Turns out She wasn't looking for a flatmate she was looking for a husband. I was always clear that she would just be a flatmate to me.
Weird things included:
Getting upset when I didn't make her aware of when I was coming home or just came home late
She slept in a pile of laundry but the rest of the house was immaculate.
I brought a girl home once she moved from the lounge to her bedroom beside mine so she could hear what was going on.
Things got a super weird after that lots of daytime texting with nonsense questions and flat meetings.
Then outright banning my friends
Then an extreme amount of verbal abuse when I moved out she'd just come up to me and yell stuff like "you're such a fucking loser"
(Basically I had started seeing another girl and she went over the edge)
I always refrained from reacting and just gtfo
Beautiful Eyes[rebelmouse-image 18352557 is_animated_gif=
When after 2 days she tells you she loves you... And also proceeds to mention that she loves your green eyes so much that if we ever broken up she would steal them while you sleep and keep them in a jar in her room...
Happens To Men[rebelmouse-image 18352558 is_animated_gif=
When she blatantly says "it's not rape when it happens to men"
Passwords[rebelmouse-image 18352559 is_animated_gif=
Asking for your passwords (phone, email, facebook, etc) as a sign of "trust". Nope. I have nothing to hide. However, when you think you need to have that information, it shows you already don't trust me. And anyone who asks and then says they won't use it, is lying. They may not use it that day, or even soon, but they will use it at some point, because the same suspicion that led to them asking for it, will lead them to use it.
GPS[rebelmouse-image 18352560 is_animated_gif=
When she puts a phone in your trunk on top of your spare tire to track you via GPS. I don't use my trunk. She knew that. She hooked it up to the 12v charger in my trunk and put a tracking app on the additional line she bought.
I only discovered it when I had a blowout and had to use it. When I questioned her about it, she said she had trust issues. But good news! Every time I told her I was somewhere, I was at that place!
We broke up after that.
Selfish Purchase[rebelmouse-image 18352561 is_animated_gif=
I had a girlfriend who yelled at me for spending $9,000 on my mountain bike instead of on her. I race professionally and I took her out to dinner at least 3 times a week and got her gifts all the time. Plus we got to travel the world thanks to sponsors. But the one purchase for my self was to selfish.
Obsessive Praise[rebelmouse-image 18352562 is_animated_gif=
I had a boss who acted like I could do no wrong. She praised me and thought I was the best.
Then one day like a switch she turned on me. She acted like i was the spawn of Satan....
I dont know how i didnt lose my job. Somehow i weazled my way out of that mess.
Then i noticed she does the same thing with all her new men employees...
I don't take well to obsessive praise anymore after her...
Message Me Back[rebelmouse-image 18352563 is_animated_gif=
Met this girl in church group in middle school. We got to know each other because of the group but didn't really become friends or anything. Stopped going when I went to high school and never talked to her for 3 years. She commented on a fb status I had and we got to chatting and I agreed to hang out the next weekend. I asked if we should invite other people in our old church group since I hadn't seen any of them in a while and she said no. I thought this was cuz she liked me and wanted to hang out with me so I was flattered. I kept talking to her throughout the day.
The next morning I woke up around 10 AM to about 7-8 missed calls, 2 voice messages, and countless text messages from her. I was pretty creeped out by then. The nail in the coffin was one of the messages I got was from an old friend from the church group asking me if I talked to that girl. I was confused how my friend knew I talked to this girl the day before. Turns out the girl started messaging my friends asking when I wake up in the morning and why I hadn't messaged her back.
Kids[rebelmouse-image 18352564 is_animated_gif=
She'll "joke" about having kids before you're even in a serious relationship. I went on a couple dates with this one girl who had mentioned how much she wanted kids. Nothing unusual, pretty common actually, I'm looking forward to being a dad one day.
Then she started sending me those weird things where you put two people's pictures together and see what their kids would look like. One time would be quirky. But she sent me a different one every morning for a week.
Broke it off when I realized I hadn't even given her a picture of myself.
Crazy Ex[rebelmouse-image 18346522 is_animated_gif=
In my experience:
- Constantly talking about how people don't get them.
- All of their ex's are "crazy"
- "I only hangout with guys"
The Fixer[rebelmouse-image 18352565 is_animated_gif=
"I can fix you" - First date
Foot Carving[rebelmouse-image 18352566 is_animated_gif=
In high school there was a girl who "liked" me. She ended up carving my name into her foot.
Reset[rebelmouse-image 18352567 is_animated_gif=
My ex would like freak out and throw things and scream at me. That's not the disturbing thing, she would fucking forget about it hit reset and act like it didn't happen the next day. Over and over. I started filming her episodes to prove to myself I wasn't going crazy.
Not Into It[rebelmouse-image 18352568 is_animated_gif=
Outright refusing to believe that a guy might not be into her advances. I've seen a woman stare in bewilderment at her boyfriend after he had to repeatedly remove her hand from his crotch because she couldn't comprehend that he didn't feel like getting felt up in a public area. I've also had a woman (middle aged) throw a tantrum because I wouldn't buy her a drink when I (22 at the time) was at a bar - while I was with my parents and some visiting family members.
Involved[rebelmouse-image 18352569 is_animated_gif=
When she starts taking offense to doing anything without her involved.
Had one girlfriend who insisted that she be with me for any outing. watching movies with friends, having dinner and drinks with the guys, she always found a way to come along.
When I asked why she was so insistent on going everywhere with me, she said she wanted to make sure I wasn't talking to any other girls, and shortly after told me to cut off contact with every girl I regularly talked to, which really just signaled a huge jealousy/insecurity problem.
I told her I wasn't going to do that and to be assured that I chose her to be in a relationship with, if I wanted anyone else I would not have signed up to be with her. That didn't stop her though. One day I went out to have BBQ with the guys without her and noticed on the way there and on the way home a car was following me. It was her making sure there weren't any girls I was talking to.
I broke it off with her after that, after a few days of her sending a constant bombardment of angry texts she finally left me alone.
Whenever someone requests you to back up whatever wisdom or knowledge you just imparted, you somehow doubt if whatever you verbalized is actually true.
Without explanation, sometimes you just know things to be absolutely true. Call it your gut or strong spidey sense, but many of us have these moments where we are at a loss for words but innately know something to be undeniably accurate.
Curious to hear examples of this, Redditor TheToastyNuts asked:
"What do you swear on your life to be 100% true?"
These Redditors had very specific memories or thoughts.
"I look good in the mirror. I look terrible in photos."
What Are The Odds
"That the printer will always run out of ink or that the paper will get jammed when you're already rushing and stressed."
"Happens all the time."
"The makers of baby wipes intentionally wrap them in a way so when you pull 1 out the container you get 2-3 and waste them because they are a bitch to put back in."
"Every cart I pull at Walmart has at least one square tire."
Shoppers And Drivers
"The way people drive and the way they use a shopping trolley are directly linked."
"If I’m having a bad day it can always get worse."
The beauty of the movie going experience is the fact that we all have different interpretations. Some, however, are very unique.
Goonies In Theaters
"The first time I saw the movie The Goonies in theaters, there was slightly more footage to the movie. Just a few camera angles and scenes here and there. I watched the movie twice in the same theater during the original run, and only opening night had the longer version. 2 weeks later when I saw it again, they played the normal version that is considered official now."
Honey, I Forgot The Scene
"I swear there was originally a scene in Honey I Shrunk The Kids where the neighbor dad flicks his cigarette butt over the fence and nearly burns up his own son. It's not on any home release I've ever seen."
If there was an evolution about America's favorite snack, we missed the memo.
"They changed the Reese’s recipe."
"The chocolate is hit or miss - sometimes it's amazing chocolaty goodness and sometimes it's all crumbly and tastes like ash. But NOBODY ELSE KNOWS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT AND GOOGLE DOESN'T EITHER."
That Waxy Flavor
"A lot of candy companies have switched to vegetable oil instead of cocoa butter in their chocolate and it makes a huge difference in taste (I think). The candy with the vegetable oil always tastes and feels waxy to me."
"I've thought they changed the recipe for Reese's for awhile now too. The ingredients still show cocoa butter though so maybe they changed something else. They're certainly not the same."
I find that if you ever change lines at the grocery store because the one you're in seems longer than the others, you are gravely mistaken.
Because the moment you step out of line, the new line somehow becomes much longer.
Come on. We all know this to be 100% accurate.
Anyone managing to hold down a steady job during challenging times is generally understood as admirable.
Honest living, as they say, is something that is commendable.
While that is true to some extent, there are certain ways people earn money that is frowned upon by others who view the work as completely objectionable.
Curious to hear what some of those might be, Reddtor UlyssesWatson asked:
"What is one profession that you have absolutely zero respect for?"
Those who hawk knock-off merchandise or fraudulent services to unsuspecting customers are seen as total shysters.
Not The Real Deal
"People that create artificial scarcity."
"Televangelist priests who have hundreds of millions, don't pay taxes, and tell people they don't love God if they don't keep donating. Preach. Have a TV church. But don't scam people out of millions a month! There was one guy, Jesse Duplantist, who told his followers that God wanted him to have a new jet, and they needed to give him $54M to buy it because his current jet was outdated. Kenneth Copeland defended his jet, saying that he couldn't be expected to get on a crappy plane full of dope heads and demons. Excuse me? You mean the people who you're supposed to serve who send you money?"
Behind The Facade
"Kenneth Copeland looks like a demon wearing human skin but the skin is getting old and can no longer hide his true form. Idk but I hate looking at him, I get a sense of evil and malice emanating from him."
Solicitors and job recruiters don't have your best interests in mind when they're thinking about collecting their paychecks.
It's All An Act
"Those recruitment people for fake talent agencies. They do these whole presentations (often in person!) to get new actors and models to sign up at the end with an initiation fee sometimes in the thousands. A lot of the people being scammed don’t know the company is a scam until afterwards when they look them up on Yelp or the BBB. The recruiter usually seems legit. I don’t know how they sleep at night knowing that’s how they make the entirety of their income."
"I almost got scammed into one of those as a 14 year old. My best friend and I begged our parents to take us to a 'modelling agency' recruitment event. Of course we were both "accepted", but then they had to speak with our parents, to get the money. My parents saw right through it. They didn't explain right away why they were saying no, and I was so angry and said terrible things to them on the way home. Later they explained that they thought it was suspicious, and that if they wanted my 'talent' they should be offering me a contract and money, not the other way around. My friend's parents did fall for it, and it turned out to be a pretty much just what they used to call 'finishing school'. It was basically classes on 'society/social etiquette' and other bullsh*t. Stuff like 'don't put your dirty napkin on your plate' and proper table settings and what utensil is for what."
"It was Barbizon."
"Bro I could barely handle working at a Wells Fargo call center back in 2012. They hounded you to try selling anything and everything to every person you talked to."
"Customer has $3.27 in their account and has overdrawn 15 times in the last 2 months? Better try getting them to sign up for another checking account (which usually had monthly fees) and also get them to apply for a credit card for overdraft protection. Supervisors didn’t care. You were expected to pitch something to every customer you talked to. I hated myself every minute I worked there."
Getting Off Pitch
"When I worked at guitar center I had to pitch the following to every customer one after another no exceptions."
"Pitch the credit card, if no pitch the layaway, if no pitch trading the gear they own. No matter what they buy pitch the pro coverage (warrenty$) don't forget to pitch the string club, and don't forget to pitch the lessons. Do not fail to mention that we offer rentals. Do not fail to get their phone number, email, and address before they leave. Assure them that we will not call them."
"Don't forget to call them and pitch the upcoming sale..."
A Cult Following
"Network Marketers (MLM) are the worst."
A Grand Scheme
"I lost my wife to an MLM. She refused to believe it was a pyramid scheme. Like, only 50 people out of the 200k involved made any real money. How is that not a pyramid scheme? I have a sticky post on my profile about my experience."
This is not how people usually seek fame.
Star Of Her Instagram
"Some local influencer took a video of me walking my dog yesterday by the beach and posted it on her insta. I looked through the hundreds of comments last night when someone sent me the thing. Many of the comments are vulgar."
"I think it’s a d*ck move to film someone without their consent for clout."
If you feel good about how you've earned your money at the end of the day, you've hit the jackpot.
Unfortunately, the same can't be said of others.
Even though we always root for the hero in film, television and books, it's often the villain which lingers in our memory.
From Captain Hook to Regina George, it's hard not to admire their calculating, duplicitous ways, not to mention their often snazzy attire.
Interestingly, the villains who often terrify us the most are those that we find ourselves relating to in some capacity.
If it doesn't necessarily justify their actions, in the end, being aware of what led them to become what they are makes us all the more fascinated, and even more terrified of them.
Sometimes, we might even find ourselves flat out rooting for them... Is Miranda Priestley really the Devil in The Devil Wears Prada?

Sometimes the best part of rewatching your favorite movies, particularly after a significant lapse of time, is noticing things you didn't notice before.
Such as the fact that Ferris Bueller''s Ed Rooney might have only been making sure that a mischievous socio-path didn't get away with constantly feigning illness.
Or that The Parent Trap's Meredith Blake's anger might have come from the fact that she was nearly drowned by a pair of 11-year-olds.
Making one question, who is the real villain here?
Ice cream lovers of the 90s fondly remember Viennetta, an ice cream cake made of ripples of vanilla ice cream and compound chocolate which made one feel like they were eating something they'd be served in a high-end patisserie, and not found in your supermarket's frozen aisle.
While Breyer's discontinued Viennetta in the late 1990s, Good Humor delighted fans when they began to redistribute it in January of 2021.
If Viennetta could find its way back into the frozen aisle, one can't help but think about other long-discontinued things we would love to see back in action.
Be it a flavor of ice cream, potato chip or soft drink, a former TV show, a festival or parade, or even modes of transportation, who doesn't occasionally find themselves falling down a nostalgic rabbit hole and wonder "if only..."

From horseradish and cheddar potato chips to Game Boys, we all have things we wish would make a return.
However, sometimes not having access to things we once loved is just what it takes to encourage ourselves to try a new experience.
...Only to find it discontinued five years later.
