Like most women, I have had the uncomfortable experience of having a guy who made me feel some kinda way, let me know he "liked" me. Like most women, I've let him know, graciously, that I wasn't interested.
These situations can go well or they can go horribly, horribly wrong.
I've had a time or two that have gone wrong and it was pretty scary thinking that someone had this unhealthy obsession with getting me to like them when I knew it was never going to happen. Once, a guy had a picture of he and I in a frame and told everyone that I was his girlfriend who lived in another state. Turns out, it was one of those situations in your 20's at a party and he asked could he take a picture with me. Cool. No biggie. To know that I was his girlfriend in his head and didn't even know his name and never seeing him again ever...was kinda weird for people in their 20's ya know?
When I read about the murderer Elliot Rodger I wondered if knowing about his crime before, would have caused me to take a different course of action when I was dealing with a creep. Would it have made me to nicer to the creep? Would I have felt scared enough to spend time with the creep hoping that it would mean he would let me live even though I didn't go out with him?
Would Elliot Rodger and the lack of proper response from the police when THE BOY'S MAMA CALLED THEM, make me tell creepy dude...Sure, I'll go out with you. Anytime. Here's my number. Call me any.time.
This fool thought his behind should only get to date the hot chicks and the lack of interest of the hot chicks caused him to hate women. No telling how many nice, lovely regular chicks who may have been interested in him...he only wanted the HOT.CHICKS. I mean...where does this COME.FROM? How does this manifest? I mean...you'd think he was solo on this right? WRONG. Dude had a community of men he empathized with. They straight up seriously took the "I Hate Rachel Club" to new levels.
This dude straight up KILLED people because he couldn't get laid by a hot chick but folks get nervous labeling him as a woman hater????????????? GTFOOHWTBS! DUDE HATED WOMEN! His lil crew? They hate women too! Dude straight up wrote a MANIFESTO ABOUT HIS HATRED OF WOMEN! HE WAS STILL MAD 'BOUT SOME JUNIOR HIGH SHIT! WHERE DO THESE PEOPLE COME FROM??????????????????????????????????
I said all of that to say...nothing much. I'm just wondering out loud I guess.
Have you ever attracted the attention of a creep? How did it end? Did it change you in any way? Do you warn your daughters about creeps like this one?
