How to avoid dating an abusive creep
Every woman has her own boundaries and thoughts on what constitutes alarming behavior, but most of us will be on the same page about these creepy things. If a guy makes a woman (or many women) uncomfortable or anxious for seemingly no reason, he’s creepy.
Whether he stares too long or constantly gets in your personal space, it’s sending the message that you need to be in “fight or flight” mode, and that’s terrible. Most people can tell when someone is uncomfortable around them, and they’ll try to adjust their behavior to make said person feel more at ease.
The name is a play on “Bye Felicia,” a meme used to signify that someone has left a party, and they won’t be missed.
Since creating it Monday of last week, Tweten has received more than two dozen submissions.
One day recently, Alexandra Tweten was browsing Facebook when a woman she knew posted a screenshot of a recent exchange she’d had on Ok Cupid.“I want to message you, but I’m afraid,” the man said.
The woman didn't respond for 12 hours, after which the man followed up with one word: "Asshole."As these things often do, the missive prompted a piling on of similar tales of inscrutably weird or profoundly rude dating messages.
When a person’s totally unrealistic about how people should react to their behavior, that person’s a creep. Spilling your guts is just as pleasant as it sounds, so why do it?
A creepy person won’t care, or won’t be able to pick up on the cues at all. This one also goes back to the entire concept that creepy guys don’t seem to be in touch with what society requires of them.
Even when they’re told to stop their behavior, they won’t. Bad bathing habits can make behavior that would be otherwise socially acceptable into a creepy act. Creepy people is that they are somehow trying to dominate others through their behavior.
If you weren’t interested, you shouldn’t have fucking replied at all! I hate that men think they can talk to women like that.
They should be publicly shamed.”Other women on the Facebook thread agreed, saying they had similar experiences and wanted to see the perpetrators punished in some way, like through a public Instagram account. ”That Instagram account became Bye Felipe, Tweten’s crowdsourced menagerie of mankind’s worst specimens.
As a result, a person who shares too much turns creepy pretty quickly. We’ve all met someone who likes to make other people uncomfortable for his own amusement. It can end up very bad, very quickly with the wrong creep.
