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.

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.

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.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
