    Only In Ny

    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...

    Why is it that there's always a creepy person

    sneaking around? I get scared sometimes because they might grab me and take me away and I would never see my family again.

    Well Actually At Work

    Yeah, since I've started working again, I've had quite a few men (of all ages) hit on me. From kids who are about 13, to guys who are in their 60's at least! I actually had one customer come up to me the other day and he said, "I want a large popcorn," (I work at a...

    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...

    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!

    "Excuse me pretty girl,

    so you know how to add a picture on facebook?" *faunts phone* "...yye I mean no." *Not wanting confrontation with a stranger* *Stranger flaunts **** pic from a distance* ...glad that I know better even if the man was going to be clean and genuine. It is okay to say no.

    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 .

    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...

    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...
