Love is a fickle thing. The emotions you experience for someone one day may not be there the next, and vice versa. You must be prepared to navigate those rocky waters with eyes past the horizon...these are not those. In fact, these are the exact opposite of that, as many people find themselves in a "relationship" with someone who takes it a tad too far.


Reddit user, u/Kaputnik57, wanted to hear what the creepiest crush has ever done for you when they asked:

What's the most disturbing thing somebody did because they had a crush on you?

Snake =/= Love

Giphy

He broke into my cousins house and stole my guinea pig to feed to a snake because I wouldn't break up with my boyfriend to date him

A Walk To Forget...

Walked a good five miles with me because she was "going my way" I was almost home before I found out she lived 30 seconds from the pub I met her in. She said she'd have to stay at mine as it wasn't safe for her to walk home alone. I Ended up having explain that I wasn't attracted to her and had to call her a taxi home and pay for it.

...And A Memento To Remember

They stole my hat and refused to give it back because it "smelled like me".

We Have Pens Now, People

Wrote a love letter in blood.

Somehow the teacher got hold of it and then the whole school found out.

Aw, He Proposed....Creepy....

Proposed marriage so aggressively he had to be escorted off the premises, then later broke the lock off my dorm room and tried to get into bed with me.

Simply Wanted To Take The First Step

Found out he had been telling my coworkers that we had been dating for weeks, when in reality I had never spoken to the dude in my life.

Found out when I was asked about my "crazy weekend" with my boyfriend when I am, in fact, single as f-ck.

Oh The Joy Of The Holidays

I was a (19 year old at the time) waitress and a 49 year old man that I'd served tried to connect with me through the missed connections page on Craigslist. He then came to my work and professed his love for me in a Christmas card that ironically had a cartoon of Santa being kicked in the balls by a child with the caption "Stranger Danger".

In his note, he said he wasn't sure if I'd be interested in an older man and he had a wife and children so we'd have to find a way around that little detail. I didn't feel safe at work so I had the police intervene and tell him not to bother me again.

Taking Initiative A Little Too Far

I came home from high school and the said college-age crusher was sitting on the sofa chatting with my family! WTF! I only went on two very platonic dates with him.

I was only friendly, but he had way more in mind. He actually asked my parents if he could marry me because I was such a "virginal angel."

Needless to say, I never spoke to this guy again, though repeated texts and calls. Goodbye and good riddance! Jeez!

Eyes Always Watching. Yeesh....

Giphy

Asked to meet. I told him I was not home. Answered with: "but your light is on"...

...He lived nowhere near. My street is a no end, so there is no reason he was passing by. He was creepy in many other ways. He told people we were in love (nope), that we had a forbidden love (nope nope) and kept messaging me for years (I stopped responding in the first year). I was 15-23 and he was 23-31. Even when I was living in another city, he kept telling people about our love.

Acted like a normal, sweet guy, so people had trouble believing me. I had to deny more than once that I had never kissed him, was his friend briefly when I was 15, and ignored him. It only stopped when I randomly met a friend of his in the city I live in and showed him ALL the messages. The guy was shocked. As far as I know, his friend talked with him and he finally stopped. Curiously, he began dating a girl with the same name as mine.

Creepy as f-ck.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
