    Ikred Me Out

    I seem to attract the mentally unstable and creeps at the worst times. This experience isn't even the worst, but it left me thinking, "holy **** I'm 5' 2", and although a pretty strong girl, how am I supposed to protect myself when something dangerous happens?" So here's my story...

    Jeez, There Are Some Creeps Out There.

    So I was just sitting in Starbucks, enjoying a cappuccino by myself, when this leering geek comes out of nowhere and says "I've got something you could stir your coffee with". Absolutely destroyed my day for no reason whatsoever. Jeez, there are some creeps out there.

    Aw, 'cmon!

    I'm at my bus stop. End of a long long school day. Nice, overcast weather. Winter. A thirty-ish man approaches a 16 year old me. ''My my my, what red lips you have... YOU MUST SUCK A LOT OF ****! Tee-hee-hee!'' ...and walks away. Doesn't look back. Never comes around again. Just...

    I Was Propositioned By A Homeless Homosexual Man Twice My Age

    Back in my mid twenties, I was walking down by the river one day when I was approached by a middle aged man that could be described as "creepy". He looked slightly homeless: like he was only on his third or fourth day of homelessness- not quite thoroughly disheveled and hungry...

    A guy once stopped me in Leicester

    and asked if I wanted to buy some cheap dvd I said where were they and he said at his flat across the road, he couldn't sell them on street as it was illegal. He said they were newest films and said if I went to look I could have one free to test and see quality, like an idiot I...

    I hate leaving my house by myself,

    especially after dark because people are way too aggressive in my area. If I don't know you don't touch me and don't approach me disrespectfully with the cat calls and overly sexual advances . I'm not mean . I was told not to talk to strangers .

    Crazy Man Threatened To Stab Me!

    There's a creepy man down my street,

    or at least wanders continuously around my area. He always has two cups of coffee with him, sitting down at a park bench. At first glance, I thought, no I shouldn't be judgmental, he's obviously got some sort of disability as his eyes are always rolling. But then it got to the...

    I'd love to know if this approach has ever

    worked for these guys? I hate it when men come on too strong, so does every girl I know... Having these so called "compliments" yelled at me when I'm walking on the street only flusters and embarrasses me. It also makes me self conscious. Some people just need to get a clue!

    There are men who undermine their sex.

    Creepiness is easily recognised but difficult to describe. It's when, for me, someone makes my skin crawl. There are vagabonds who will often surprise me but it's the creepy people, some from Eastern European climes who really worry me. Being approached on the street, and...

    "Excuse me pretty girl,

    The Bus.

    It's ALWAYS the bus or bus stop. Its not a sexual thing, I'm not out there with a sign that says "do me." Just creepy old SOB's think they have to come talk to me for whatever reason. Its like, dude, I am not giving you money. Go beg by the overpass with the other bums alright?

    I am only approached by... creepy men on the street. I guess they are creepy because they various ways they.. get my attention.  90% of the time i do not think things are directed at me. I am probably correct in that assumption. It would be quite arrogant of me to think...
