Creepy or Cute

The funny thing about dating is that two different boys can do the same thing and merit such opposite reactions from the females. “Oh, cute, right?” or “Woof. Creepy!”

For example:
Boy brings flowers to your work.

Cute: You have had a crush on him for two years. 
Creepy: This boy got your number last night and somehow found out where you work.

He says you were in his dream last night. 

Cute: You guys are on the brink of dating

Creepy: The only interaction you have had with this boy is catching him staring at you in bio lab.

He invites you on a road trip with the family. 

Cute: This shows commitment.

Creepy: You’ve overheard his mom saying, “invite her, this will seal the deal.”

Taking lots of pictures when out together.

Cute: He wants to remember how bonita you looked at the sushi bar.

Creepy: Really, 30 pics have just been uploaded to Facebook without you even knowing they were taken?

Wishing that our cute outweighed the creepy,

Char and Gert


  1. reason number one among many that i love your blog? the truth behind it all. this post is the perfect example. there are soooo many situations that can either be deemed cute or creepy based entirely on how long you've known the guy, or at least on how long you have liked him from a distance. this whole creepy talk reminded me of a video. have you ever seen demetri martin's jokes with a guitar? watch this video and fast forward to like 3:57. he does a short bit on creepiness. it's hilarious.

  2. This is so true. Oh man... Timing really is everything.

  3. HAHHAHA just stumbled upon your blog and I'm in love with it, great stuff, thanks for putting all my thoughts into witty words and posting them on the internet so I can read them :).

  4. I agree! I've always thought the level of creepiness is determined by how much you like the person. Guy doesn't like girl, she brings him cookies, those babies are all gonna be eaten by his roommates. Girl doesn't like guy, he leaves movie night basket at her door when she's having a girls night, creeper! Does like him = thoughtful!
