Many people have enough intuition (or a sixth sense) to know when a person is a total creep. They’ll start getting that “stranger danger” sense and know they should get out of their current situation.

On Reddit, people share the biggest things that totally creep them out when it comes to interacting with others.

1. Narcissists

“Someone who appears very nice but becomes nasty when they don’t get their way.” Shares one user. Other than toddlers, it’s not generally a good personality trait.

2. Anger Issues

“I’ve got a coworker who brags about having anger issues. He starts smirking, as if that’s so impressive and intimidating. I think it makes him sound like a creepy d***hebag.” Says one user. Definitely not something to be proud of.

3. Blank Stares After a Question

“People who ask you a question and then just stare at you without any follow up after you answer them. I swear every time Ive talked to the big boss /CEO of a workplace they will ask me a really simple question like “how are you today?” And when I say “Im good, how are you?” I just get this confused stare in return. Just f***ing say something or nod or ANYTHING lol.”

A few users agreed this might be a tactic to get someone to volunteer more information they aren’t saying initially.

4. Why the Touching?

“Touching while talking to you when they don’t know you.” Says one user. Many agreed, saying if you don’t know me, please don’t get so close and personal.

5. Why So Close?

Similar to touching, getting too close and into people’s personal bubbles is also a problem. “People who stand too close to you when they’re talking. Fair enough if it’s a loud setting but if it’s just the two of you and the other person is standing right up close it’s super creepy IMO.” Says one Redditor.

6. Hand Shake Power Dynamics

“Firm handshakes but they don’t let go. Makes me so uncomfortable and I absolutely do not trust anyone that does this.” shares one user. Most agree its a mix of power dynamics and old-school beliefs.

7. Give Me All Your Info

“Trying to get a load of personal information from you in a first meeting…like phone number, Facebook, Instagram or whatever else you have!” They went on to clarify that they’re fine with sharing info if they hit it off with someone but hates the barrage of question and info from some people.

8. Roleplaying Texts

“People who roleplay when texting you. And type out stutters like “i-i.. really like you looks away nervously” It makes me want to run as far away from you as possible because what the he[ck].” Many users gave other funny examples, while others were surprised to learn this was a thing.

9. Say My Name

“People who use my name too frequently when we’re talking.” Say one Redditor. Many find it fake and feel like they’re part of a sales pitch.

10. Why the Questions?

“People who question literally everything I do. Like chill bro, not even I know why I did that.” He clarifies that asking out of curiosity ok okay, but he doesn’t like feeling hounded for his life choices costnantly. We can all agree that annoying and a littl bit creepy.

11. Accidental Eye Contact

“Something I’ve witnessed myself doing and others: accidental eye contact followed by vaguely looking past the person to non-verbally be like ‘hey, I wasn’t actually looking at you, sorry!’ except it ends up being/feeling creepy.” It’s at least better than intentional eye contact!

12. Photos of Strangers

“Taking pictures of strangers without permission and people who just don’t respect boundaries in general.” Shares one user. Most people can agree being the subject of photos against their will is not okay.
