    Mentally MIA, ignorant, unrelenting.


    Looks and age are non-factor for me... I've had hot creepers my age on the internets.

    For me a creeper has nothing to do with age, a creeper is someone who misrepresents himself online in order to be able to meet with you in person and then tries to sleep with you. A creeper is someone who is interested in you and when you politely decline, they insult you.

    When he finds out where you live and shows up at your doorstep.
    Regardless of age or "hotness".

    Here I thought we were going to talk about plants.... icon_wink.gif

    Creeper/Creepy tends to be a mindset. I do not know if its mentally MIA -

    As it says in my profile: Average guy looking for nothing. It seems that just draws guys like a magnet... either they are illiterate or creepy....

    To me I guess it is not respecting known social boundaries and pursuing even after one has been told their attention is not wanted.

    I am very cautious about this... I am not looking for sexual anything but even when it comes to social interaction I am pretty passive with strangers (especially younger strangers) lest I be seen as "creepy" because people seem to assume any attempt to get to know someone is designed to land them in bed. It bums me out because my intentions could not be more innocent. I just think some aspects of friend-making were lost on me as a kid because I feel like I suck at it.

    Yesterday a younger guy initiated a conversation with me after he overheard a conversation I was having with my dad. We could only talk for a few minutes because my family was waiting for me, but in that time there were like ten interests we had in common, some of which are not easy to come by. But there was no way I was going to ask him for contact info or anything lest it be seen as "creepy". Thus, I suck at life.

    Complete lack of social grace. Very forward and/or innuendo driven. Inability to calm it down or conform to a normal flow of conversation.

    Bonus points for:
    +10 years in age
    Unkempt facial hair
    Body odor
    Beer belly
    Non-designer clothes
    Engaging me in a conversation about Star Wars then instantly turning it sexual (with one notable recent exception - the Cyanide&Happiness comic strip with the Jabba the Hutt fantasy - that is okay to mention since it is humorous)

    Agree, but to some age difference alone labels you creepy. I have forum friends all different ages from 20s to 60s, and age is never a factor. But to others, I sense it is. Because of age, I will make a point that any photo comment will be very benign and uncreepy, but a few will reject the comment, and I think it is only because of age. Noticed that with one guy, who later commented in a thread that no one over 50 was a jock, had any business being on the site, and he wanted nothing to do with them. He was even later voted MOTD. Held my nose.

    "Non-designer clothes" make somebody a "creeper?" Beeyotch, pleez.

    Fake or empty profiles are about the only things that make for a true "creeper," when the person hiding behind them starts chasing you.

    A creeper is anyone who gives you the creeps --- it can be for different reasons -- just makes you feel creepy like there is something not right about the person.

    It takes some amount of personability and level-headedness to shop at boutiques and nice stores. Because they are not high-volume it requires a limited amount of interaction with the staff and if you don't fit in, well, it is pretty obvious and very giggly and everyone talks. It might be an economically insensitive rubric to apply because it appears to make me classist, but I think the ability to procure designer clothes trends more towards the "normalcy" aspect - the complete contravention of creepy.

    The creepy guys I am talking about shop for their ill-fitting jeans and baggy sweatshirt clothes at Walmart at 2am so they don't need any social interaction or regulation/moderation in their bizarre social interactions - oh and they are likely on Grindr on their smartphone as they are prowling the 100 underpants for $10 aisle.

    I love talking to strangers when I go out to bars. In regards to dealing with potential creepers face-to-face, I try not to let first impressions decide how I feel about people, because a lot of people I have met who at first glance are Creeper McCreeperson really turn out to be simply socially awkward. Nothing wrong with that.

    The real creepers I have met are socially ignorant. Talking to a guy long enough for me to diagnose him as a creeper is unfortunately long enough for him to assume that I want him inside me (because let's face it, being friendly = let's fuck). Thanking him for the conversation and walking away isn't an invitation for him to follow me. Saying "I'm not interested" isn't a statement that should be met with a proposition to buy me a drink.

    I only wish to run into these guys...

    I would have thought a creeper would shop at overpriced mall stores intended for guys half his age simply to interact with the teenage staff and then misinterpret their only partial rudeness as flirtation?
