[rebelmouse-image 18352551 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Tighty whiteys stapled to her wall as conquests....I've seen it, it's out there.

Unfolding

[rebelmouse-image 18352553 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

60,000 texts will do it.

What's Your Sign

[rebelmouse-image 18352555 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She asks you your sign, then giggles, gives crazy eyes, and says "we're compatible"

Flatmates

[rebelmouse-image 18352556 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

When she blatantly says "it's not rape when it happens to men"

Passwords

[rebelmouse-image 18352559 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

"I can fix you" - First date

Foot Carving

[rebelmouse-image 18352566 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

People Describe The Absolute Laziest Things They've Ever Done

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

People Explain Which Things Are Stupidly Overpriced

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
